Virgin offers cable customers mobile broadband for £5

Customers on the company’s XL or L cable packages, or those on ADSL Bundle 1, will be eligible for the £5 deal. They will have to sign a 12-month contract, pay £25 for the USB modem, and are restricted to 1GB of downloaded data a month.

Customers on Virgin’s M or other ADSL packages will receive the same deal for £10 per month.
