4G iPad mini hits EE today

Small but speedy

You can get one whole month of free 4G with EE if you take out the company's £15.99 30-day SIM-only iPad plan which comes with 5GB of data.

Also available in slower flavours

Orange and T-Mobile are also offering the new iPads on HSPA+ and DC-HSPA networks.

The new cellular iPad mini and iPad 4 are both also available today from Three as well, although you won't be able enjoy a 4G contract from the numerical network.
