AppleInsider has a report today listing AT&Tâ€™s international data plans for the 3G iPad, and as is usually the case with roaming charges, theyâ€™re not cheap!
According to AppleInsider, all things considered, the cost roughly amounts to $200 for 30 minutes of streaming YouTube videos. There are four Data Global Add-On packages to choose from, with tariffs starting at $24.99 per 30 days for 20 MB of data, and soaring as high as $199.99 for 200 MB. Somewhere in the middle of that you have 50 MB of data for 30 days for $59.99, and 100 MB of data for 30 days for $119.99 The plans can be ordered directly from your iPadâ€™s Cellular Data screen on a month-by-month basis.
AppleInsider suggests that a cheaper option for iPad owners travelling abroad might be to purchase a pre-paid data micro SIM from a local carrier in the country youâ€™re visiting. Once the iPad 3G is finally released in Europe and elsewhere weâ€™ll probably know more about how possible this will be.
