Apple's iPad is an expensive device to buy outright with prices starting at £499 for a 16GB WiFi and 3G model. They then go up to £579 and £659 for the 32GB and 64GB 3G versions respectively.
For that reason those wanting to get an iPad might want to consider taking out a mobile broadband contract from Three. For £25 a month you can get 15GB of data per month and you'll only have to pay £159 up-front for the 16GB 3G version of the New iPad. Alternatively you can lower the upfront fee further by paying £29 a month (£99 upfront fee).
The 32GB model is also available on the same contract options with the upfront cost being £229 and £169 on the £25 and £29 per month tariffs respectively. While the 64GB is available with an upfront fee of either £299 or £249 depending on which tariff you choose.
Those interested in lowering the upfront fee slightly might want to consider Three's one-month rolling contract which gets you 10GB of data for £15 month and lowers the upfront fee of the iPad to £479, £549 and £629 (16GB, 32GB and 64GB models).
