mobile data needed fast

I have a user that needs to give a presentation at a customer site (New York City) from our laptop. They will not provide any kind of Internet, so we must bring our own. Is there something like mifi she could rent? She has an Iphone with AT&T and I don't know what tethering options are possible, but we probably don't want to mess with jailbreaking, etc.

    You can rent a USB wireless air card. A Google search turned up a large number of sites. I do not have any specific experiance with any of them though. We do have our own AT&T wireless card and have not had any problems getting service, especially in cities. I agree with not jailbreaking the iPhone for company purposes. Not sure of the relationship with the person, but it does opens up liability if something ever goes wrong with the phone.
