    All tablets can be connected to the internet via Wi-Fi. But, not all tablets have the necessary CDMA or GSM modem to connect with a cell carrier's broadband system. Further, a cell carrier may not want to sell you a data plan for a tablet that you bought separately. They would much rather sell you one. So,you may run into that stonewall. But, all is not lost. If you have a smartphone and a data plan, you may be able to use your phone to setup a Wi-Fi hot spot. That depends on if your phone support's that function. I hope this helps.
