shipping to business customers in December 2017. And Last month
the Surface Pro LTE was available for pre-order for consumers

Microsoft will be soon adding another feature into the LTE
connectivity of the Surface Pro. Microsoft will allow users of
the LTE version of Surface Pro to select and purchase their
data plans directly without needing to contact their carrier
for information and all this can be done via the Windows 10’s
Microsoft Store itself. This new feature will be available
after the launch of Windows 10 Spring Creators Update this
month.

Please note that this is not a Surface Pro LTE specific feature
rather it will be available for all those Windows 10 devices
which have e-sim inbuilt either with Intel’s new processors and
any snapdragon one. It was confirmed by the General
Manager of Microsoft,  Erin Chapple during a
conversation with PCMag that Microsoft is working bringing this
feature compatible with most of the carriers.

Currently, Microsoft Store is offering the carrier Transatel
for this feature with data plans like 200MB for one
day, 1GB for 15 days and 3GB for 30 days. Those who are
unaware of the Surface Pro LTE, it can support up to 20
cellular bands to deliver global connectivity. The device
which is available for pre-order at above-mentioned countries
is equipped with an Intel Core i5 processor, 256GB of SSD and
8GB of RAM. It can be pre-order from Microsoft Store

here for a price of $1,449.
