All the contracts are over 24-months and include some allotment of data.
Previously such financed options for buying an iPad were only available through Apple Premium Resellers and First National Bank.
The latest iteration of Apple’s tablet PC is similar to its predecessor, the iPad 3, adding a handful of improvements such as a faster processor and support for more Long Term Evolution (LTE) networks.
While MTN does operate an LTE network in a band supported by the iPad 4, and Apple recently switched on support for Vodacom’s LTE in the iPhone 5, the Apple website still doesn’t list MTN among networks supported for LTE.
The table below summarises the new iPad 4 deals advertised by MTN. All iPads are the Wi-Fi + Cellular model:
|MTN contract||16GB iPad 4||32GB iPad 4||64GB iPad 4|
|MTN 500MB Internet||R299||R349||R399|
|MTN 1GB Internet||R329||R379||R429|
|MTN 2GB Internet||R369||R419||R469|
|MTN Uncapped Lite (3GB with throttling)||R509||R559||R609|
Update: MTN said in a press statement issued today (6 February 2013) that it has been offering these deals since the start of the month, and would announce packages for the iPad Mini “closer to the time of launch.”
