Unfortunately, EDGE and 3G have quota limits that can end up costing money, so Wi-Fi is a better choice when available.
Since you're specifically paying extra on your plan to use your cell phone (through it's 3G/4G connection) as a hotspot, it doesn't actually invalidate my point - public wi-fi in North America is scattered enough that you can't rely on it as a tablet user who is stuck using the cloud to access most of their files and functionality.
