    Hi,

    I am wondering what speeds you guys are getting when you tether your 4G LTE iPad. Do you experience any disconnects? I've read several threads about this but I am looking to see if replacing my Verizon Mifi with an iPad is a viable option.

    Speed Test Pics would be helpful. :D

    ** Planning on the buying the Air

    I have never done a speed test of my iPad on LTE because I don't want to waste the data.. but both my kids can stream netflix while using my iPad as a hotspot. I don't have a lot of connection issues.

    Deleted. Sorry. I thought you were talking about tethering to iphone 5s. Nevermind.

    When I tether my ipad to my iphone 5s, my LTE speeds are the same on both devices. Of course that will vary depending on signal strength, tower capacity, location, etc.
