Orange offers 'pay per meg' iPad 3G data plan

Cellco readies micro Sim supply

Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

Orange has revealed its iPad data plan pricing, including a novel pay-for-what-you-use scheme.

The key plan bills data at a rate of five pence per megabyte up to a monthly maximum of £40. That's 800MB.

Orange will also offer daily and weekly one-off connectivity. A day's surfing costs £2 and gives you 200MB of data. A week's bundled access will set you back £7.50 and give you a 1GB allowance. Exceed those limits and you'll be billed at the 5p/MB rate.

To up the limit, you can go for a £15 or £25 monthly deal which come with, respectively, 3G and 10GB of data plus 'unlimited' - 750MB, in fact - Wi-Fi hotspot browsing though BT Openzone. Again, bust the limit and you'll pay 5p/MB for the excess.

Activate any of these plans and we'll give you £10 credit, Orange said.

Orange said it will take orders for the micro Sim cards the iPad uses on 10 May - the day Apple UK starts offering pre-orders.
