Three UK Details iPad On Contract Offers

Three UK has finally revealed more details about its iPad contract and they are rather tasty given the fact that the mobile broadband operator chose to offer contracts with 15GB data allowance only.

Customers will have to fork out £25 per month on a two year contract, more than the £17.50 per month we predicted and on par with what Orange and T-Mobile will be offering.

Both aforementioned companies only offer 1GB worth of data with an additional GB offpeak plus Wi-Fi hotspot access.

The cheapest 16GB iPad will cost £199 while the 32GB and the 64GB will cost £249 and £349 respectively, £20 cheaper than what you'd expect their prices to be.

The total costs of ownership would reach £799, £849 and £949 respectively for the duration of the contract which broadly similar to what iPhone 4 handsets cost at three UK.

The company also sells the iPad on PAYG for the same price as Apple does (which means that you're better off buying the tablet elsewhere) and its microSIM only one month rolling contract tariffs, for £7.50 for 1GB and £15 for 10GB.
