Question about Tablets & eReaders
You don't need internet, to put data on a tablet (or on a computer) entering data, is typing a note, or making a picture. Then save it. That is how data becomes data. But if you want to receive data from the internet, most tablets need a wireless connection. And unless you have a hotspot close to home, the only way would be to visit a Starbucks or McDonald, where they offer free WiFi, while you are consuming there.
More and more firms offer free WiFi, when you are visiting them.
If you want WIFi at home, you first need an internet connection. If you already have an internet connection for a computer, you could buy a wireless router and connect it to the same router you already use for the computer. If you don't have an internet connection, you should get one. Most providers, now offer routers with WiFi and cable connection.
Sometimes if you have a smart phone, with internet connection, you can setup our phone as a hotspot for your tablet. But some providers try to block that.
And soem tablets do have a possibility (they cost more) to insert a sim card. For those you goto a provider and arrange a data plan for the tablet.
I hope this helps. Make sure you don't have a WiFi router, before you buy one.
