can't tell you about speed on rogers. Its pretty ok on verizon most of the time compared to some hotspots


check with your provider too, they may charge for tethering

Roberto, since I don't the answer, before you do that, make sure you won't incur outrageous additional charges for "tethering" from Rogers.

Just like crazydude said.
