Can I share the iPad internet with other devices? ie connect my laptop to internet via my iPad?
I am looking to buy an iPad but already have a prepaid wireless 4g modem for my laptop. If I purchase an iPad with a plan can I share it's internet access with other devices and eliminate the modem?
Alternatively can I buy iPad 4g without a plan and use the wireless modem for Australian internet access, but be able to purchase pre-paid chips overseas whilst travelling and use the 4g functionality only at those times?

You should check with your service provider - Telstra, Optus or Vodafone. They may have different policies or charge for tethering functionality.
