Verizon Leveraging iPad WiFi Launch to Sell Verizon MiFi

When in doubt, sell 3G data contracts and the money will roll in. According to Engadget, wireless carrier Verizon is encouraging its staffers to tell customers to purchase the WiFi-only version of the iPad and pair it up with a device like the MiFi rather than shelling out $130 more for integrated AT&T 3G and 30 days until the device launches.

Verizon has followed this up by calling its biggest competitor’s 3G network “overloaded” even though there’s currently a 5GB limit of data on a Verizon MiFi plan which will run users $60 a month, twice as much as AT&T will be charging for its dedicated, unlimited iPad plan.

The sniping continues and will probably keep going long after the iPad is released come April 3rd.
