Pippa Dunn, consumer chief marketing officer at Everything Everywhere said: 'New iPad customers will benefit from the widest 3G coverage in the UK and, with our advanced 3.5G roll out, they will also benefit from a really fast network. As a result, we're definitely the number one place to go for those wanting the best all round performance on their new iPad.'

The device is also available on a £25 per month contract for 24 months. Existing customers have an upfront cost of £199 for the 16GB, £249 for the 32GB and £349 for the 64GB.
