Fido To Release iPad 3G Data Plans?

by on May 29th, 2010

Leading up to the Canadian launch of the Apple iPad, Rogers Wireless was very clear that Fido would not be supporting the iPad at launch. However, that did leave the possibility of Fido supporting the iPad at a later time.

As it stands, there are two confirmed wireless carriers supporting the iPad, Bell and Rogers, and one wireless carrier that is sort of flaky right now, Telus. The plans are as follows:

The iPad 3G plans from Rogers:

  • 250MB: $15.00/month
  • 5GB: $35/month
  • Unlimited access to Rogers/Fido WiFi hotspots

The iPad 3G plans from Bell:

  • 250MB: $15.00/month
  • 5GB: $35/month
  • Unlimited access to Bell WiFi hotspots

The iPad 3G plans from Telus:

  • 250MB: $15.00/month
  • 5GB: $50/month

Doing a little digging, it seems that Fido may be the next carrier to support the iPad. Internal screenshots indicate that Fido has input the iPad 3G into their systems and there is a laundry list of supported data plans, ranging from 500MB to 15GB, that apparently support the iPad 3G.

While it is likely the above list of data plans will not officially be available for the iPad 3G, this is a good sign that Fido will be launching iPad 3G data plans soon.

As for pricing, there will likely be two plans that are the same price and data amount as Rogers/Bell. However, since the iPad 3G is unlocked, it really doesn’t matter if Fido launches or not, but the more options the better.
