AT&T Kills Unlimited Data Plans For iPad; Replaces It With 2GB Plan

Currently iPad users in the US can opt for either the $29.99 per month unlimited data plan or the $14.99 per month 250 MB plan.
For new iPad customers, the $25 per month 2 GB plan will replace the existing $29.99 unlimited plan. iPad customers will continue to pre-pay for their wireless data plan and no contract is required.
However, they’ve clarified that existing iPad users can continue to stick to their unlimited data plans.
Existing iPad customers who have the $29.99 per month unlimited plan can keep that plan or switch to the new $25 per month plan with 2 GB of data.
so the change in data plans for iPad users comes as a surprise.
It is also disappointing to see AT&T capping the data to only 2GB for a tablet device like the iPad, which is essentially a device for media consumption. If you're planning to buying an iPad 3G, we would strongly recommend you to buy it before June 7 so that you can still opt for the unlimited data plan.
