Verizon recently announced it would sell the iPad bundled with the MiFi mobile Wi-Fi hotspot, but the 1GB data plan wasn't too impressive. Fortunately, the Verizon website reveals there will also be 3GB and 5GB plans with relatively good pricing.
The advantage of Verizon's iPad deal was that it did not require a contract. Still, a single gigabyte per month is hardly enough for the average user.
A FAQ page on Verizon's site mentions a 3GB plan for $35 and the 5GB plan for $50, expanding the options for those who want to use the iPad for browsing the Web. The originally reported 1GB for $20 plan is still available. Users will be charged an additional $10 for every gigabyte they go over their monthly allotment.
The interesting thing is that Verizon is cutting a significant deal for iPad users. Normally the MiFi rates are $35 for 250MB and $60 or 5GB. Of course, Verizon had to do this in order to compete with AT&T's no-contract pricing for 3G iPad access.
These data pricing options are only available to people who buy the iPad + MiFi bundle, but it might be a glimpse at changes in Verizon's data pricing for all customers. Verizon has indicated it will end its unlimited data plans and price the resulting data tiers differently than AT&T.
