  • AT&T Reveals New Billing Option for iPad 2 and Other Tablets


    On Thursday, AT&T rolled out a new post-paid monthly data billing option for its covered tablets. In case you're wondering, yes, this includes the freshly unveiled iPad 2. The first reaction to AT&T's announcement is that the carrier seems to now have a small advantage over Verizon Wireless, which offers pre-paid only plans for tablets.

    In a press release issued today, AT&T says that, effective immediately, customers can choose between AT&T’s existing prepaid billing options or the new postpaid plans. The new plans, AT&T says, can be added to customers’ existing monthly wireless statements, "offering the simplicity of a single monthly bill." But "for a limited time," customers who activate a new postpaid $25/2 GB plan will get the first month free.

    Customers may choose from the following options.

    * Postpaid: $14.99 for 250 MB or $25 for 2 GB. Customers on the 2 GB plan who exceed their monthly data allotment will be charged $10 per 1 GB of overage. Charges will appear on customers’ monthly wireless statements.
    * Prepaid: $14.99 for 250 MB or $25 for 2 GB. Customers on the 2 GB plan who exceed their monthly data allotment may choose to purchase an additional 2 GB for $25. Charges will appear on customers’ credit card statements.

    Both options are month-to-month and do not require a long-term commitment.
    Following AT&T's announcement this afternoon, Verizon representatives went on record to confirm that data charges for the iPad 2 will remain identical to those the carrier charges for other tablets. Verizon also says it will stick with its pre-paid requirement. Verizon presently has four data pricing tiers for tablets, compared with AT&T's two.
