Orange has announced SIM only price plans for the iPad 2, which see customers getting 1GB of Anytime and Quiet Time data for just £10 a month – in other words, the same amount of data which comes with the £25 Pay Monthly contracts.
£5 a month gets you 250MB of data to use Anytime, but doesn’t come with that nice extra bit of Quiet Time usage.
Quiet Time data can be used between midnight and 10am, and doesn’t detract from your Anytime data usage.
You’ll have to dig a bit deeper for the iPad 2s themselves; on Orange SIM Only it’s £499 for the 16GB version, £579 for 32GBs and £659 for the 64GB versions.
That’s quite an uptick from the prices you’d pay on a contract, but this way you’re not tied into a two-year contract. So, you’ll be a better position by the time the iPad 3 arrives…
