I'm looking for some opinions and overall user experiences. My in-laws got a WiFi iPad for Christmas. The only internet access they currently have is via a Cricket USB modem connected to their laptop. Obviously, they want to take around the iPad and connect to the internet similar to how they do with the Cricket USB modem. I was thinking that a hot spot could take care of them for both the laptop and iPad but I'm not sure which is the better choice between the companies I highlighted. Cricket is only 3G but I've heard about some throttling experiences users were having with CLEAR especially with programs like Netflix. Not that they would use something like that very much but you never know once they start using the iPad more. We live in the Philly area. They don't have smart phones to tether or jailbreak so please refrain. I'm specifically looking for Cricket and CLEAR experiences. Verizon is too expensive and AT&T isn't really offering month-to-month with their MiFi. The Virgin Mobile MiFi may be an option. Thanks.
