LTE Data Plans
I haven't been following this for a while since with my iPad 2 I went with the Wifi version and just tether to my iPhone. However, with LTE, I am thinking that maybe I want to use tethering some of the time but if I am going to be traveling much of the month, maybe switching to a data plan for a month.
Perhaps no one knows till Wednesday, but is there an LTE equivalent to the $15/25 monthly plan I had from AT&T on my iPad 1? That will make a big deal in my decision. I don't want a $45 2 GB LTE plan.... If so I'll just skip it.

One device isnt going to change the price plan of LTE for an entire company.
As far as Rogers, LTE data plans for Rocket Sticks, Rocket Hubs and Tablets will remain the same and expensive
Your best bet ( if someone with Rogers living in Canada) is share your Data on your wireless device with your tablet.
Rogers smartphone data is LTE ready and all SIM cards are LTE now. So, if you have data already on your current plan (like i do 30$ for 6GB) i can just share my data with the ipad 3 (w.e its called) and have LTE data at no added cost
As I said, I have AT&T in the States and used to use the $15/$25 month to month plans that are only available for the iPad. You can't even get them with an Android tablet.
I am afraid that AT&T and Verizon will see this as an opportunity to raise rates and change the iPad plans. They never miss an opportunity to raise rates.

So this is exactly what I am afraid of:
"Apple Inc is betting a 4G-equipped iPad will tempt more U.S. consumers to pay extra to watch high-quality video on the go, and in turn, give Verizon Wireless and AT&T Inc a revenue boost."
