A very beginning question about the Internet on BB Playbook

Good morning I am considering buying Playbook and have a very simple question: Do I need BIS/BES to have the Internet on it? Thanks in advance

Re: A very beginning question about the Internet on BB Playbook

Playbook currently works on wifi, tether to a smartphone that supports dun with blue tooth , Bridge via BIS or BES dataplan on a Blackberry device on OS 5 or higher.

I hope you can get one of the above. I am using it to post this.
