A day after the initial announcement that Verizon will be selling iPads starting in late October, we now have a lot more detail on data plan options for the iPad with Verizon.
Verizon has provided more detailed information on the MiFi 2200 rates and data plans it intends to offer customers alongside the Apple tablet when it goes on sale at company stores beginning October 28th.
In addition to the 1GB data plan for $20 per month announced earlier, Verizon now says it will also offer a 3GB plan for $35 and a 5GB plan for $50. Those rates are available at steep discounts to the wireless carrier’s typical offerings, which cost $35 for 250MB and $60 for 5GB.
There is one catch: customers must purchase a WiFi iPad and Verizon MiFi 2200 Intelligent Mobile Hotspot together as a bundle to get the discounted data plan prices. Even customers who already own a MiFi 2200 but don’t own an iPad aren’t eligible for the rates should they choose to buy an iPad from Verizon, according to a set of frequently asked questions.
