If Vodafone Egypt deploys LTE on the same bands that AT&T does, and you have an AT&T LTE iPad, then it will simply be a matter of unlocking the SIM slot so you can pop in a Vodafone SIM card. It looks like Vodafone Egypt started LTE trials in 2010, so they should be ready to roll out soon, but I can't find any information on which bands they're running on. In Europe, it's 800/1800/2600 MHz, and in Asia it's 1800/2600 MHz, which is incompatible with the 700/2100 Mhz your iPad runs on.
Long story short, ask your Vodafone rep which bands LTE will run on. If it's 700/2100 MHz, you should be fine.

I have a similar question regarding Verizon LTE coverage in Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic.
I've been trying to find out from Verizon, but getting through to anyone that isn't looking at me like a deer in the headlights has been frustrating after about 30 different attempts through 4 different methods.
Has anyone else used their new iPad (or even their iPad 2) with Verizon coverage in Punta Cana without issue?
