What Speed Costs: AT&T, Verizon iPad LTE Data Fees

4G LTE has finally hit the iPad, bringing with it a new set of LTE data plans from the two U.S. service providers. The AT&T and Verizon LTE fees were posted on today, but bear in mind that there was at least one goof listed: AT&T’s $30 LTE data plan is for 3 GB per month, not 2 GB. Verizon’s $30/2 GB plan, however, is still correct.

But that’s not the only difference: Big Red also offers a higher tier, at 10 GB/$80 per month, while AT&T slides in a lightweight cheapie option at 250 MB/$15 per month.

As with previous iPad plans, they both offer data service contract-free.

Are you getting a 4G iPad? Which carrier are you going with?
