Virgin Mobile has introduced a new data-free music streaming option that will allow you to stream from select services without using up your data allotment. The new service is available from the carrier beginning Friday October 9, and will be included at no additional cost. Virgin Mobile recently added additional data allotment to its plans at no additional cost, and now the carrier is removing streaming from using that data up.
Currently, only Pandora, Slacker Radio and iHearRadio are supported by the service, though Virgin Mobile has plans to add additional services in the future. This move is very similar to T-Mobile's Music Freedom offering, which also lets customers stream without using up their mobile data.
