What is the ipad mini on cellular like for using on the go. Looking at an O2 sim 10 month.

Good coverage and speed?

I can't comment on O2 as I'm not with them any more. The iPad Mini's cellular coverage on Three is great. A good strong signal.

The coverage is down to your provider and your location.

I think it depends on where you live and where you intend to use your ipad. I have an iPad mini and tether it to my phone which is on O2. I live just outside London and travel in around London. For me coverage and speeds are excellent.

Exactly. Quality of coverage is entirely dependent on your location.

I ditched O2 in favour of Three as the data signal for O2 where I am (Edinburgh) as pretty poor. Three is a lot better and way cheaper as well.

Tethering is another option but depends on your phone provider and the contract you have. You can tether without officially having it on your contract but they can detect it. I have all you can eat data on my phone but no tethering. It doesn't stop me connecting them but after a while they detect it, flash up a message on my phone and the tethered device and I have to reboot my phone to get my data connection back.
