Sprint to offer contract-free LTE plans for all tablets, $15 for 1GB offer goes to existing customers
To celebrate the arrival of the iPad and iPad mini on its 4G network in mid-November, Sprint introduced new data plans for all tablets under its carrier wing.

Beginning November 11, customers with tablets can hook them up to Sprint's network contract-free, and the price range is $14.99 for 300 MB of data, $34.99 for 3 GB of data, $49.99 for 6 GB of data, and $79.99 for 12 GB of data for new subscribers. 

Existing Sprint customers can add a tablet to their plan for $10 per month, which give you 100 MB, or $15 per month for 1 GB. These contract-free data plans offer “20 percent more data than Verizon or AT&T for the same price,” which might be true in theory, but when it comes to coverage, the price difference is totally justified. If you still want to get in on the Sprint's LTE ground floor with your tablet, activation fees are waived for a limited time for all new tablets.

Well Sprint's LTE really needs to kick off in NYC for this to actually gain.

Their 20% comment is inaccurate, at least with AT&T. They offer 3GB of tablet data for $35, one cent more than sprint's offering of the same. The other two prices (AT&T doesn't offer more than 5GB on a standalone plan) do seem somewhat accurate, as AT&T offers 5GB for $50 and 250MB for $14.99, last I checked. I think verizon has simliar prices, but only 2GB for their middle tier, which would make sprint's statement accurate for verizon only
