It’s been a long wait for T-Mobile customers, but the un-carrier is going to offer the iPad Air on Nov. 1. To sweeten the deal, those who buy this version of Apple’s next tablet will get 200MB of data a month free of charge.
T-Mobile will also be offering the iPad mini 2 when it goes on the market at some point in November.
Naturally, both models will be able to access T-Mobile’s 4G LTE data network, as well as its HSPA+ network. And users will be able to get 200MB of monthly data transfers without signing any contract with the telecom.
For those who want more, iPad plans start at just $10 a month for unlimited data including 500MB of 4G LTE data. Or they can consider a daily pass, that includes unlimited data with 500MB of 4G LTE data for $5. A weekly pass includes unlimited data with 1GB of 4G LTE data is $10.
