    Something happened to the cable lines on my street they have been working on it for 2 days now. We have cable just no Internet. Calling them results in the same message we are aware of the situation and working to resolve the problem. Thankfully my iPad has 3G and it saved me. At least now I can get online.

    Thank god for 3G. Now I'm not praising it the service is slow but, when you got nothing man its great to have. I think 2 days without Internet and I'd start to twitch.

    Definitely getting 3G again on the iPad 2

    *Resists urge to link to "Cool Story Bro" Picture* :D

    But yes, the value of the 3G is internet when WiFi/Cable is down.

    Cable went out for me today for a few hours while my brother in law and I were doing some school work. Tethering and Internet sharing saved the day.

    Power outages seem to be the only time that I don't have WiFi, but there's an iPad app that locates free WiFi everywhere I go; 3G is the next best thing, despite the 2GB limitation...

    Thank you MiFi-like tethering using a single data plan and a much cheaper iPad...
