    At long as your cellphone data plan allows it. AT&T Unlimited does not. Some do, some do not.

    Create a hotspot on your phone, then connect your iPad to the wifi network that you created with the hotspot. No need for cables.

    Not sure why you are bent on using cables. Not even sure it's possible with cables.

    What you're trying to do will not work. You cannot tether the two devices together via cable to share an internet connection - at least not that I'm aware of.

    It doesn't matter. You cannot tether iOS devices together for hotspot purposes via a cable, but you can do so wirelessly. Either do it wirelessly or use your MBA.

    While that works with a computer, it does not work between 2 iOS devices with a cable. But you can do it wirelessly.

    No. It is not physically possible. You must use wifi to share an iPhone's cellular Internet connection with iPads.

    apple really have to make iPad able to tether iPhone internet data , iPad is perfect for movies , online gaming , and we need extremely good internet connection to achieve that , which CABLE tethering is the best in this case , better then wifi .

    You literally have no idea what you're talking about. Absolutely zero.

    The hotspot connection you'll get wirelessly will be nearly identical to the connection you'd get via a cable (I know, I've tested it both ways with my MBP using the hotspot connection and USB connection). The ONLY reason you'd want to use a USB connection is to keep the iPhone charging while also sharing internet (and you could just plug the iPhone into the wall to do that with the iPad).

    Using the hotspot feature on the iPad is a perfectly efficient way to share internet between the two devices. There is absolutely no reason why you'd use a cord to do this unless the iPad wasn't capable of connecting because of an issue with it's antenna.

    Also, iPad sales are not effected what so ever by what you are talking about...iPad sales are being cannibalized by the iPhone 6 Plus and the recently released Macbook.

    Is it possible for you to actually stop posting non-sense?

    I know why don't you trade in your iPad for one that has a cellular radio in it, or better yet fix your damn wi-fi connection. My Comcast connection of 125mb down / 12mb up still crushes my LTE connection ... Just saying ...

    As Not Quite Right suggested, an LTE iPad would solve your perceived issues. And again, what you want to do is NOT possible.

    So, stop. Just. Stop.

    Do you have a WiFi router that is connected to the cable modem? If yes, then connect the iPad to the WiFi router and you should be good. Keep in mind that if your iPad is older, it may not have 5GhZ capability, so the internal WiFi network speed between the iPad and WiFi router would be a 2.4GhZ.

    If your MacBook is connecting to the cable modem at 1Gbps, then its connection may likely be faster than your WiFi, or what the 5S hotspot can provide.
