iPad 4G LTE Data Plan Prices for AT&T and Verizon [Updated]

Wednesday March 7, 2012 11:01 AM PST by Arnold Kim
Apple's online store has slowed to a crawl with the traffic after the announcement of the 3rd generation iPad. Here are the data plan prices for AT&T and Verizon iPads on the 4G LTE network:



Both AT&T and Verizon's data plans overlap in the 2GB an 5GB allotments and cost $30/mo and $50/mo respectively. Meanwhile, AT&T offers a lower end 250MB tier at $14.99/mo, while Verizon offers 10GB tier for $80/month. These are month-to-month no-contract plans like on the iPad 2.

Update: Though these plans were taken from Apple's Online Store, AT&T has gotten in touch with us and pointed out that their $30 data plan actually offers 3GB/month of data, making AT&T's $30 plan a better deal than Verizon's.

Update 2: Verizon has also reached out to remind us that the carrier offers a 1 GB plan priced at $20. It seems that Apple's site was offering some outdated or incorrect information on data plans when the store was first coming online. Apple's site is now showing the proper options, although Verizon also offers one additional plan not shown on Apple's site: 10 GB for $80.

Should be $30/mo for 3GB, not 2GB AT&T!

$250mb for $15/month? What a ripoff. That'll take no time at all to hit on LTE speeds.

It would take 27 seconds to hit that at the maximum speed advertised.

Good to see the networks are still in bed with each other and have little incentive to lower prices.

4G LTE is redundant until Data Prices lower (well for the typical customer).

I just don't get it. Why would you even want a 250MB/month plan on an LTE connection? Seems like a waste. And the other caps seem to be so low for how fast data can purportedly be consumed.

Why not offer more realistic caps like 5/10/15GB and make the prices $35/$75/$90? Then you are actually differentiating between 3G and true 4G service.

The speed at which you're downloading doesn't change the amount you're downloading...this statement is ignorant.

Interesting to see a $10 increase in price for Verizon


Ok, so I download and purchase a couple movies from iTunes (maybe downloading on another device using the hotspot feature to get around cellular data limits). Cap used in 15 minutes. How is my statement ignorant?
