Three has revealed its prices for the 4G iPad Air start at just £7.50 per month, or netting you a tablet for as little as £119.

Three has revealed its prices for the 4G iPad Air, which goes on sale on Friday. Monthly costs start at just £7.50 per month, or you can get yourself a tablet for as little as £119 up front.

In terms of monthly cost, the cheapest deal is £7.50 for 1GB of data, followed by a £15 deal for 10GB of data. To take advantage of those deals, you'll pay £499 up front for the 16GB model or £579 for the 32GB model.

To get the cheap deals for the 64GB iPad Air, you need to fork out £659 (on the 1GB deal) or £469 (10GB).

Those are monthly rolling plans so you're not tied into a lengthy contract. For a cheaper up-front cost, you can commit for two years and get 15GB of data each month, starting at £25 per month and £179, £279 or £349 for the tablet. For £119 up front, you'll have to shell out £29 per month for the next two years.

If you're in London, Manchester, Birmingham or Reading, any of these deals will give you 4G for free before the end of the year.
