AT&T Offering $100 Off LTE iPads With 2 Year Data Plan

Posted Nov 8, 2012

AT&T is starting to offer discounts on iPads through a 2 year data plan agreement.  The company is offering $100 off any tablet purchased with the 2 year plan online or from their stores starting on November 9th.  This deal includes iPads.  Below are the details.

Beginning Friday, Nov. 9, customers will receive $100 off any tablet purchased at an AT&T company owned store or online at or at selected agents or retailers with a two-year data plan agreement.

Tablet customers can choose from several qualifying data plan options, including adding a tablet to an AT&T Mobile Share plan for just $10 per month.  With Mobile Share, customers share a single bucket of data ? from 1GB up to 20GB ? with other devices, including smartphones, tablets, gaming devices, and more.

Customers must choose between plans that include:

  • AT&T Mobile Share: $10 to share between 1 GB and 20GB
  • AT&T DataConnect 250MB: $15 for 250MB
  • AT&T DataConnect 3GB: $30 for 3GB
  • AT&T DataConnect 5GB: $50 for 5GB

Generally telecommunications companies offer subsidies on smartphones only so this strategy is unique.  In the past, telecommunications set-up similar deals through the purchase of netbooks, but that market declined steadily since Apple introduced the iPad.
