This program is made possible thanks to the subsidy received by Virgin Mobile from the federal government, which amounts to USD10 per month for every users enrolled in this program. On top of that subsidy, Virgin Mobile also receives additional subsidy to cover the cost of the free cell phone they provide for the program, which amounts to around USD10 to USD15 per person per month. While the program is free of charge without any need for deposits, Virgin Mobile also offers additional packages for those who need extra call minutes or text message services, ranging from USD5 to USD30 per month depending on the services the package offers.
