Mobile network operators have unveiled their data plan prices for the Apple iPad, which launches this month in the UK.
Orange UK users have a wider range of options than their French counterparts who will pay €10 per month for 200Mbytes and €39 per month for 2Gbytes, both without a term contract.
Orange UK pay-as-you-go and contract customers will pay 5p per megabyte up to a total of £40 per month. Alternatively, they can buy one of four packages which range from £2 for 200Mbytes per day to £25 for 10Gbytes per month and unlimited access to BT Openzone Wi-Fi hotspots. Customers in the UK also get a flat £10 credit.
Vodafone, O2 and 3
Vodafone is offering SIM-only deals costing either £10 per month for 1Gbyte or £25 per month for 5Gbytes.
O2 bundles unlimited Wi-Fi access but will charge £2 a day for 500Mbytes, £10 per month for 1Gbytes, and £15 per month for 3Gbytes.
3UK had no prices on its website. However, the ITPro Portal website suggests using a 3 dongle to fix the monthly per gigabyte cost at £5.33 for a year.
