Vodafone UK alters iPad plans in wake of competition

updated 10:40 am EDT, Mon May 17, 2010

Base option matches O2

Even though the iPad has yet to launch in the United Kingdom, Vodafone has already modified its local data plans for the device. The carrier was originally intending to offer just two monthly plans: a 10, 250MB option, and a more practical 25 plan with 5GB. This put the company in a weak position next to O2, which is selling 1GB for 10, and Orange, which has 10GB for 25.

Vodafone's 10 plan now matches that of O2. The 25 plan is unchanged, but a 15 middle-ground tier has been introduced, providing 3GB per month. Vodafone is the only UK iPad carrier out of three to not offer a daily option. Wi-Fi and 3G iPads should reach the UK by May 28th, although new pre-orders will only be delivered in June.

    I went for wifi only as I intend to get the next gen iPhone with a 3G contract/add-on of some sort (undecided). I will then jailbreak them both and tether the two (should I ever wish to use 3G on my wifi only ipad).
