Apple’s online store is slowly creeping back online, and as we go to purchase the new iPad, AT&T and Verizon’s LTE data plans for the LTE iPad have been revealed. Nothing has changed from the old 3G data options. Both carriers are still offering similar pricing, but have different options available.

AT&T is offering the lowest amount of data, offering only 250MB per month for $14.99, while Verizon offers the highest of 10GB per month for $80…

AT&T

  • 250MB per month – $14.99
  • 3GB per month – $30
  • 5GB per month – $50

Verizon

  • 2GB per month – $30
  • 5GB per month – $50
  • 10GB per month – $80

Which LTE iPad/plan will you be purchasing — if when you get through?

  • I would recommend adding the link (at the end of this article) to the article that explains how people can check their current device’s data usage, to gauge which plan they may be able to get away with.

    Great info as always!

    “includes wi-fi browsing”?
    wtf? can someone explain please?

      I had the same question about this phrase. I interpret this phrase to mean that Verizon or AT&T will still count your w-fi data usage towards your data plan limit, which sounds totally ridiculous. It would make no sense whatsoever, since you wouldn’t even be using their network. Any insight from actual subscribers would be appreciated.

        You Americans. 🙂 It’s of course access to AT&T Wifi service called AT&T Wifi basic. Never been in US, never used AT&T service, but this is kinda obvious.

  • Actually, AT&T used to offer 3GB for $30 for the iPad 2 and if you go to their site ( http://www.wireless.att.com/cell-phone-service/specials/netbooks.jsp – click on iPad then on “DataPlans”) the $30 plan is still there. It’s even listed there for 4G LTE tablets. So $30 for only 2GB on AT&T is a disappointment and going backwards. 🙁

  • Option #3
    Use a T-Mobile 4G Mobile Hotspot with the WiFi only model.

    5 GB for $40 with NO Overage charges!

    F— off AT$T!!! You contract breakin’ sons of b–ches! Unlimited means Unlimited!

    I really am stuck here! I still have my unlimited 3G plan for my iPad1, and am definitely going to upgrade (when I somehow get the $$ to), but I would like to have LTE… I really don’t want to lose my unlimited! Unless popping my microSIM into the new iPad would somehow just “work” and allow me to use the 4G- which I highly doubt.

    • My co-worker kept his 3G unlimited plan when he upgraded to the iPad 2. Don’t know about the “3”.

      • I think you mean the “new iPad”

      • Yeah, I guess you’re right. Hadn’t heard about that when I commented, lol.

      Your unlimited data plan will continue in the new iPad, you just login to the account but keep the new iPad SIM card in it. It works and I transferred my unlimited data account to the new LTE iPad. Also discovered you can cut a Verizon SIM card down to micro and use it in the VZW iPad if you have an unlimited data 4G plan with VZW (i.e. Thunderbolt).

  • I just pre-ordered the 32 GB wifi only model as i dont need the 4G i have 30 MB internet at the house.

    At least Verizon has some better pricing than stupid AT&T. 14.99 for 250 MB is a complete SCAM

      Plus 250mb is ridiculously little for just about any iPad user on a high speed data network. I could burn through that in no time.

  • $80 for 10GB a month!?! I have an unlimited data plan on my iPhone, (verizon) and its $30! wtf

    These two providers should not be rewarded by not offering an unlimited data plan. They are salivating at the mouth thinking about the huge bills people will face with LTE speeds.
