Best Buy already offers a number of phones and laptop computers that are bundled with mobile broadband plans from Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, and AT&T. Now it looks like Best Buy is preparing to offer its own wireless plan, allowing users to get online for prices ranging from $40 to $60 per month.
Honestly, the plans look like they’re pretty much par for the course, with $40/month getting you a data cap of just 500MB. The $60/month plan is a bit more reasonable, with a 5GB data cap.
The most interesting part of the plans is the fact that you can sign up for a contract-free plan at the same monthly prices — although you’ll have to pay a $35 activation fee which is waived when you sign up for a 2 year contract. The fees you pay for going over your monthly data cap are also lower when you sign up for a 12 or 24 month plan.
