There is no USB Broadband adaptor (dongle) for the iPad so that option is out.
He can explore purchasing a MiFi device and account, which is a cellular data connected device (rechargeable) that you carry with you and it creates your own WiFi hotspot that can be used by 5 computers.
There are also cell phones that can be used as hotspots in a similar manner and reportedly the iPhone will be able to do the same (it can on the new Verizon iPhone in the US, to be available on AT&T "soon", I believe iPhone 4 only).
I would have him check local outlets for both of these options from his preferred provider.

If ur mate already has a usb wireless modem he will not have to get another plan if he buys something like the Netcomm Portable Router that I use. U just plug it into the little router (abt same size as cigarette pkt) and turn it on. Rechargeable ..... last 4-5 hrs I think. Never ran it that long non stop.
