Best Buy To Peddle Its Own Mobile Broadband Service

In a recent Sunday ad, Best Buy pimped Best Buy Connect, its upcoming mobile internet service.

Data plans start at a $30-a-month 250MB package with a 2-year contract. If you hike it up to 5GB a month, you don’t need a contract and pay $60 monthly.

The rates seem competitive, and this is great news for us at Consumerist because Best Buy will doubtlessly bungle this somehow and help readers fill our inbox with loads of juicy tips.

Look out for the service July 11. And stories from dissatisfied customers July 12.
