8ta today announced that it will extend its iPad dedicated data plans to the next generation iPad 2 with Wi-Fi + 3G beginning 29 April 2011 when the iPad 2 is due to launch in South Africa.

Amith Maharaj, Managing Executive of 8ta said: “8ta is excited to extend its exclusive data deal to the iPad 2 and remains the only operator in SA to do so. The iPad 2 has been tested and certified for use on the 8ta network.”

The prepaid data bundles for the iPad 2 will be offered at the same rate as the first generation iPad and remains exclusive to iStore sales of the device.

These bundles are as follows:

  1. 512MB for R120
  2. 1GB for R160
  3. 3GB for R299

8ta said that post paid data bundles for the iPad will be offered at a later stage.
