Is there a monthly fee associated with using a tablet? If not, what is it connecting to?

Only if you purchase one [a tablet] with 3G/4G data access through a mobile service provider (eg. AT&T, Verizon, etc.).

If you do not purchase a mobile service plan, you will have to connect it over your own wireless network, or one at a coffee shop, or similar.

I bought a Superpad and just use wi-fi.

I use my service at home, the wi-fi at office and like Trevor mentioned at coffee shops and other free locations. When there is no wi-fi available I just play with the apps and other things I have loaded onto it.

Ali: depending upon where you live, you can pick up Wi-Fi almost everywhere! I travel from Chicago to rural Michigan and along with the "usual suspects" of Starbuck's and McDonald's, I've found free Wi-Fi at Bob Evan's, my laundrymat, the public library and loads of motels, if you park close enough to them. What will happen is you open up a Browser window and a "permission" page will open up. You click on "I Accept" and "Continue" or "Connect" and you're good to go. Even in rural Michigan, there's loads of Wi-Fi spots so if you live in a city, you should have no problem.
