When it comes to the iPad, AT&T says unlimited is unlimited
When the Apple iPad enabled with 3G is launched later this month, buyers will have two plans to choose from for their 3G coverage from AT&T. The first has a cap of 250MB a month for $14.99, and the second is an unlimited service for $29.99. Many have been thinking that with the well known network problems AT&T has had with bandwidth hogs using the iPhone, the unlimited plan would have to be capped somewhere-maybe at 5GB. It is the same kind of thinking that allows an "All You Can Eat" place to throw you out the door after your 10th plate of ribs. But Mark Siegel from AT&T says that "unlimited is unlimited". The carrier does not care what you do with your iPad, even if you are one of those users who is straining the network, asking for data constantly. Now Siegel did say that he expects iPad users to take advantage of the Wi-Fi capabilities of the device and the free AT&T hotspots. But even so, this is a nice change of pace from the carrier who had complained so much about use of its network that we had expected metered pricing to be installed by now.
