AT&T muddies fate of $15 iPad 3G plan
AT&T has delivered contradictory statements regarding the future of the 250MB for $15 iPad with Wi-Fi + 3G data plan to separate publications. Speaking with Chicago Now, AT&T spokesman Mark Siegel said that users currently on the $30 a month unlimited iPad plan would be able to keep it, while users who haven’t signed up for it will be unable to, and will need to choose from the DataPlus plan, which offers 200MB for a $15 charge, or the 2GB for $25 DataPro plan, indicating that the current $15 plan will be discontinued for new users. Seth Bloom, also an AT&T spokesperson, chatted with TUAW, and said that “[t]he prepaid iPad $15 plan will not be affected at all by these changes,” adding that “[y]ou will continue to receive 250MB (not 200MB) after the changeover for the same $15 cost,” contradicting Siegel’s statement. iLounge has contacted AT&T about the issue and will update this story if and when we receive a response.
