Hi! I used the device through my Roku to stream Netflix. It worked ok while the unit was in fast 4g mode. After a certain daily/monthly limit, the unit slows down to 256K. I don't think this would be fast enough for Netflix without pauses.

Yes, but the amount of data Netflix used for one 45 minute television show was ridiculous around 450Mb. On the cheap plan you only get a little more than 3 times that much data, 1.5 Gb. So yes it is fast enough to stream Netflix, but I don't think you would want to do any marathon watching.

Roaming charges don't apply to a data network, you either have a connection or you don't, period.

As long as your iPad can connect to a "normal" wireless network, you should be good to go. The device will show the name and password on the screen when you power up. Enter that into the iPad and it should connect.

Up to 5 devices can connect at once, you also have the option to choose how many down to only 1, YES.

supports 5 devices, but don't be expecting performance and speed if all these devices are accessing the internet.

1 attached device barely attains 400kbps, so attaching more devices with internet usage would bring data to a crawl.
