    I've not tested this, of course, but I wouldn't try using the Wifi Hotspot for gaming. Call me crazy... but I think you'll have serious troubles and be thoroughly disappointed in the results.

    I am not an expert, so if anyone else has tried this and had success, please chime in.

    Speed wise they're fast enough, where it is going to kill you though is latency.

    Yea, latency will be the issue.

    I can tether on 3G in tallahassee here, and I can play TF2. However, I can't join a server with more than 5-8 people in it, otherwise when I try moving at ALL my ping spikes from 90-112 to around 600. Otherwise, while moving and shooting, the worst it gets is around 180 to 200 with 6 people.
