Hi TeleJust out of curiosity, would you be willing to reveal how much Verizon FIOS costs you?Are you completely satisfied with it?Is it their hardwire option?Me? I have an iPad with a Verizon 4G LTE connection, and use it as a 'personal hotspot' for my laptop. I have 2G of 'data' per month, then it will cost me between $10 and $15 per gig after that. If I go even 1kb of data over a particular G milestone, I get charged for the next G. This is the 'agreement' I have, I understand it, and choose to be 'ok' with it.I also have an android smart phone with data plan linked to the iPad plan (i.e. both units are subject to a total of 2G). The two together run me $124/month.So far, I've not gone over the 2G limit. I also do not download movies, only every once in a while do I surf youtube (in part because it will start and stop during the video), I don't listen to internet radio.NO!!! the 4G LTE is NOT very good. It is a frustrating system... so much so that I finally switched the iPad and the Phone off of 4G LTE and am using the 3G function. It is 'good enough'.Why do I keep it? I am 'home independent' - free from any geographic location. Part of my job is online. I've used the tablet and the phone for WORK needs, in the local wifi hotpots that have popped up all over Mexico and Central America. Wifi hot spots are far more ubiquitous outside the US than here in Tx, therefore I feel the need for the personal hot spot function.The hot spot makes me 100% mobile. My 'home' has become 'where ever I am'. This 'home-independent' is a feeling that is, I suspect, akin to being 'financially independent', ... perhaps a subset?:-)ralph
