    It depends on which carrier you are using, and what you already have. The options are too application based to point to one without more input.

    verizon 4g ipad offers free hotspot for up to 5 devices.
    with att they do not offer mobile hotspot and there currently is no jailbreak to even try to apply a hack for enabling it.


    You can go the route of getting a MiFi mobile hotspot from one of the cell carriers. However that will easily run you about $60/month.

    If you are using AT&T now, then any one of their hotspot devices should do. I would make sure it is 4G capable and that they will transfer your existing data plan to it. Other things to consider are battery life, charging options, and size.
