TELSTRA, Optusnet and Vodafone Hutchison Australia have shown their eagerness to get on board the iPad bandwagon with confirmation they will soon stock the micro SIM card needed to connect the device to 3G mobile networks.

Some versions of Apple’s much-vaunted touchscreen computer will come unlocked and ready to go with any prepaid mobile broadband service, but users will be required to sign up with a provider that offers the soon-to-be-introduced micro SIM standard, which has a chip housing smaller than a regular SIM.

    This is terrible, the pieces for telstra iPad micro sim is exactly the same pricing, as optus and I’m not happy at all with the speed I get from my telstra pre-paid micro sim, $20 for 1 gig is a joke, especially for the shocking speeds, i just did a speed test in Perth with a Perth server and getting a 375 ping hit rate, and download speed of only 2.77Mbps upload is a stupid 0.21Mbps, why is it slower then my other wireless ” broadband” 3G modem, they are using the same network! I hate the monopoly that telstra has and the rediculas plans on offer, with shaped 3G plans. Dame dame dame!!!!!

    well change plans or carrier

    It is iniquitous that normal Telstra pre-paid broadband users will be effectively subsidising ipad users. $30 mer month buys 0.4 MB for normal users and 3.0 MB for ipad users; i.e. Normal users will pay 7.5 times the fee that ipad users will pay !!!
