hi, i live in Australia and havent used virgin mobile myself but seeing you are bring your own phone i would go with Mobile Plans - Live Connected because they also use the OPTUS network like virgin mobile does but virgin uses a different APN(which is used to connect to the interent) which is slower(in most cases) because they use a different backhaul network.
