Following the announcement of UK iPad pricing on Friday, O2 has now released details of its dedicated data tariffs for the iPad with WiFi + 3G.
All iPad data tariffs will be available without a long contract and include free unlimited access to BT Openzone and The Cloud Wi-Fi hotspots. The cheapest option is 500MB Pay & Go which costs £2 per day. However, if you know you'll need more than the occasional day of 3G access, you're better off opting for the 1GB plan which costs £10 per month, or the 3GB plan for £15 per month. None of these amounts roll over, so if you don't use your allowance, it disappears. Apple and O2 have devised a way to easily activate, manage and monitor your account on your iPad. This means you'll be notified as you approach your data limit with a direct link to iPad settings to check data usage, top up your account and upgrade or cancel your tariff. "We are truly excited to provide service for iPad with Wi-Fi + 3G," said Sally Cowdry, O2's Marketing Director. "We've worked closely with Apple to make sure customers get an excellent experience when using their iPad Wi-Fi + 3G on O2. Not only will it be quick and easy to buy value for money data access from the device, but customers will also benefit from our overall, award-winning service wrap which includes great network and great customer service and the added benefit of access to thousands of public Wi-Fi hotspots." O2 micro sim packs for iPad with Wi-Fi + 3G will be available through O2 retail stores and O2's website.
