COST is the biggest issue. High latency can be an issue for some applications but for mail and browsing it is fine.

If you have reasonable cellular coverage and speeds it would almost certainly be cheaper to either add extra data to your cellular plan or get a suitable cellular modem or dongle on a new account with plenty f data allowance.
