    My 83 yr. old Mother has been showing interest in emailing friends & Family. She never had a computer, (except a WebTV Years ago) & Never will. She would get into too much trouble, so I bought her an Android Tablet. My question is: are there any companies in S.E. Florida where I could get her Inexpensive wireless service instead of going with AT&T DSL or Comcast cable broadband which are too expensive for just a Tablet. Any recommendations? I sure would Appreciate it...

    I have no idea. Maybe Wireless Internet Service & Broadband Wireless ISPs throughout Florida will help.

    If you were thinking of mobile wireless data I don't think that's ever less expensive than the cheapest DSL.

    If you or another family member has mobile wireless (voice and/or data) service check with the carrier to see if somebody else in the family can add a data plan relatively inexpensively.

    Can the tablet make a 3G connection or WiFi only?

    Perhaps www.clear.com? although the majority of the internet would be around the same price.
