Apple SSL bug: WiFi risk only?

After reading the description of this dramatic SSL bug affecting iphones, ipads & macs, I remain confused:

Is this only relevant if you are on a shared wifi network?

If you are on cellular 3G,LTE or on your private wifi at home, how is this relevant?

I have several ipad users (IOS6) who have refused to upgrade to IOS7.

Is this SSL issue a compelling reason to do so? (A patch is not available on IOS6 for iPad2 / iphone 4).
