Best Buy to launch Connect 3G service in July

Electronics retailer Best Buy is set to begin offering a 3G mobile broadband service in July, if a leaked image and a page from its flyer from Sunday is correct. To be called Connect, an insider says it will be exclusive to Gobi-equipped notebooks and will rebrand Sprint's service with different plans. There are also conflicting reports of whether 4G networks will be supported.

The chart reveals various prices and plans, with a contract-free 250MB per month available for $30 on the low end and a 5GB per month, two-year contract at $60 on the high end. An identical no-contract plan is offered, but a $35 activation fee is required. The service is said to go live on July 11. [via Engadget]
