Verizon Introduces Affordable 1GB Plan and iPad Mobile Hotspot

Amidst the anticipation for the 4G variant of the iPad, there has been considerable ambiguity regarding the accompanying data packages. The Verge has clarified the offerings from AT&T and Verizon, particularly highlighting the availability of mobile hotspot features.

Verizon emerges as the more appealing option, providing a broader selection of plans and including mobile hotspot usage at no additional cost.

Verizon’s strategy includes four distinct data plans for the latest iPad model, starting at a 1 GB plan priced at $20, escalating to a 2 GB plan at $30, a 5 GB plan at $50, and a 10 GB plan at $80. Importantly, each plan incorporates complimentary mobile hotspot functionality, which utilizes the same data quota.

Conversely, AT&T’s offerings consist of three plans, beginning with a 250 MB plan costing $14.99, which also imposes a $14.99 charge for each additional 250MB.

Their other plans include a 3 GB option for $30 and a 5 GB option for $50, with overages priced at $10 per additional GB.
