8ta is offering dedicated 3G data plans for iPad with WiFi + 3G. Because all 8ta's data plans are available without a contract, users are free to activate or cancel a plan at any time.
Apple's iPad was official launched in South Africa this month and has seen a quick take-up among consumers.
The device allows users to browse the web, read and send e-mail, enjoy and share photos, watch HD videos, listen to music, play games and read ebooks using the Multi-Touch user interface.
Amith Maharaj, managing executive of 8ta, comments: “The prepaid data bundles will be offered at a preferential rate that is exclusive to iStore sales of the device. 8ta post paid data bundles for the iPad will be offered at a later stage.
“The exclusivity of this bundled deal is indicative of the impact that 8ta, as a brand, has made not only to consumers but also with multinational corporations such as Apple. This announcement reinforces 8ta’s promise to launch new and exciting products to our customers and is the result of the flexibility of our new generation all IP core network and a very passionate and focused team," he adds.
“South African consumers have been anticipating the local unveiling of this exciting device and we are proud to be selected as the preferred data provider. We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship with Apple."
