    I've decided to go for wifi only ipad 16gb (looking to get an iphone 4gs in the near future and didn't want two sets of monthly network costs - I've managed with a wifi only ipod touch for over two years so I guess I'll survive).

    I'm considering though investing in a small subscription to a nationwide wifi network - wondered if anyone was having the same thoughts and if there was feedback on coverage etc.

    The main two options seem to be The Cloud or BT (who do a £ 5 per month option which seems to cover most UK large cities I visit quite well including Leeds, Manchester, Brimingham, Edinburgh and London).

    Any thoughts ?

    You have a nation wide WiFi network in the UK!? Pretty cool. If that were the case (and I lived in a city) then I would have considered that here.

    Both the networks I mention are technically nationwide but are quite patchy. There are large swathes of countryside and smaller towns that will have no or very limited hotspots.
