    Connecting my iPad to a wireless network by tethering my phone is the speed normally a lot slower on the tablet compared to the phone when doing this ? The 4G that is.

    Depends on how the telco handles tethering. If the telco allows unrestricted access, you are only bound by the wifi speed of your phone. If you have a 5s, then the iPad pro will only be able to surf at N speeds even if you are connected on an LTE-Advanced network.

    Based on my experience, my telco knows that I'm tethering and throttles the speed to 1mbps (I'm on unlimited data).
