Would love to hear from anyone less confused than I am about this!
www.apple.com/au/ipad/LTE shows the following information.

The 4th Generation iPad and the iPad mini WiFi + Cellular models are compatible with Telstra and Optus (and Virgin) LTE networks.

Hooray!

I know that but I doubt any of the current iPad prepaid plans allow the use of LTE. I know Optus has no commitment LTE plans for the iPhone 5 so I assume next week we would get some options.

I used to work for Telstra as a wireless data network technician and do not see this as a problem (i.e. there should be no problem accessing LTE on a prepaid iPad plan as long as the device is LTE supported).

Should I expect the iPad to arrive before the second last day of this month (November)? Apple website says ships "late november" which I hope translates to 22-24 arriving 27-28.

I'm going overseas for a quite a few weeks on the 1st of Dec and need the iPad before then.

My status was updated today. Ordered the LTE version a minute into preordering. Was stated as "Late November" before now it's listed as "Shipping : 1-2 weeks" and "Delivers 26/11/2012 - 03/12/2012 via Standard Shipping"

Guess will have to wait a little bit more...

I have the same.
I just spoke to the Apple people via telephone. They assured me despite the website saying that information the iPad will be shipped out tomorrow or Saturday and I will receive it early next week. (Maybe because I purchase a lot from them and I need the iPad by the end of next week before an overseas trip.)

Seems like the Australian LTE orders are being prepped. Mine has finally changed status to 'Preparing for shipment'. Here's hoping for an arrival before the end of the week.
