AT&T or Verizon: Which iPad 2 data plan is best?(Read article summary)
iPad 2 users can choose between 3G data plans provided by rival carriers Verizon and AT&T.
The iPad 2 is here. And as we reported yesterday, the new Apple device is an improvement on almost every level – processing speed is up, size and weight are down, and the thing even has a gyroscope, which should make gamers happy. (iPad 2 price points will remain the same across the board: A Wi-Fi-only iPad 2 will set you back $499, while 3G models start at $629.)
Furthermore, unlike the original iPad, which initially launched only on the AT&T data network, the iPad 2 will be available through both AT&T and Verizon. So which carrier is offering the better deal? Well, Verizon is certainly offering more options. According to Computerworld, Verizon will tier its monthly data plans thusly: $20 for 1GB; $35 for 3GB; $50 for 5GB; and $80 for 10GB.
