Apple's new iPad: on sale through Vodafone from Friday 16 March in Australia
Vodafone has announced a set of new data plans for Apple's new iPad, which goes on sale in Australia tomorrow.
Unlike Telstra's new iPad plans, Vodafone will offer the new tablet on a range of 12 month plans in addition to 24 month contracts. Vodafone's plans start at $47 per month for the entry-level 16GB iPad model over 24 months.
"We've almost completed the rollout of our new 850MHz network built specifically for devices like the new iPad, said Noel Hamill, director of marketing and sales at Vodafone Australia. "Also, when customers buy an iPad plan it's backed by our new network guarantee to ensure customers are happy on our new network."
Vodafone's cheapest plan on the 16GB iPad will set you back $47 per month for 2GB of data, which totals $1128 over 24 months. There are no upfront costs on any of the new plans: the same plan on paired with the 32GB iPad will cost $51 per month and $56 per month with the largest 64GB model. On a shorter 12 month contract, the same 2GB per month plan will cost $76, $84 and $93 per month, respectively.
The new iPad will be available through selected Vodafone stores Australia wide from tomorrow, but the telco does not appear to be following Telstra's lead and opening some stores at midnight.
