Best Buy Connect 3G broadband becomes official

updated 08:50 pm EDT, Tue July 6, 2010

Site launches ahead of schedule

Best Buy has accidentally confirmed its Connect mobile 3G service ahead of schedule. The company quietly published a website for the new service, however the pages were quickly removed. Earlier reports suggest the offering is actually based on Sprint's network, but rebranded specifically for the retailer.

A leaked chart listed pricing starting at $30 for 250MB/month without a contract, while customers can also sign a two-year agreement with 5GB of data for $60/month. The high-end plan is said to be available without a contract after a $35 activation fee.

Sources suggest the retailer is planning on offering competitive subsidies on 3G-enabled notebooks, with a maximum $275 savings for a two-year contract. [via Engadget]
