According to AllThingsD, Verizon will be offering prepaid monthly plans for the iPad 2, 3G version as follows: 1GB ($20), 3GB ($35), 5GB ($50) and 10GB ($80). AT&T, however, is sticking with its previous plan structure: 250MB ($15) and 2GB ($25). In both cases, each extra 1GB beyond the limits will cost $10, with no contractual term.
Clearly, the most flexible option is the Verizon pricing scheme. And it also seems like, at the low end, it also offers the best value. There’s only a $5 difference between the carriers’ two cheapest options – 1GB for $20 (Verizon) and 250MB for $15 (AT&T). Seems like a no-brainer… except for that pesky issue of simultaneous voice and data, which the CDMA network can’t do.
So iPad 2 hopefuls, which one are you leaning toward? Let us know in the comments below.
