Virgin Radio has teamed with Sydus to launch what could possibly be the first radio station to be broadcast via 3G networks. The service is available to anyone in the world with an appropriate handset and a telco that allows 3G connection to outside sites, and will be made available free of charge.

Virgin says an hour’s listening to the station via mobile would involve about 7.2MB of data, which could prove expensive for people using pay as you download GPRS or 3G services. Some UK networks, such as Orange, charge up to £1 for every one megabyte of data downloaded.
