    I'm going to be traveling and want to stay online. I've never owned an iphone and don't want one.
    Will an ipad do this?..or do I have to be near a hotspot for it to work?
    I'm already getting a headache.
    what's a fair rate to pay?
    thanks

    Ipads need to be on a wifi unless you have a cell service with the ipad. Im guessing you dont or you wouldnt be asking this.

    Most airports and hotels offer wifi. Some are free some are not.

    Can you get a wifi 'Hotspot' from your cellular company?

    I have one of these from Verizon.

    It's through work so I don't know how much is costs, maybe $40 per momth?

    A laptop will connect via a wifi hotspot or the internet connection (wired or wireless) available in your room.
    So would a typical tablet.

    Some tablets have 4g capability, but if you don't use a smartphone you don't have that yet almost certainly.

    You can buy a 4g hotspot and service $40/mo? and use it to have internet access anywhere for your computer.

    Or you can dial into the Dawgshed info line and listen to a recorded recap of the day's events by Slow.
