We just recently went up to our cottage for 5 days where I brought my iPad. Since we do not have Internet service up there, I got by with using a virgin mobile broadband device. So like Girardmand was stating- there are many ways around wifi issues or lack of in my situation! It worked well-but it certainly would not be capable of watching video etc--too slow of speed. I was a happy camper- kept me connected with the forum and my email!!
