I'm curious as to what is the maximum speed you have achieved over WiFi. Is there a predetermined maximum WiFi speed the iPad 3 just can't go above?
I ask because I find it curious that on my laptop, which is about 3 months older than my iPad 3, I'm able to achieve 72mb download, twice the speed that on my iPad 3, which always maxes at 30mb.
I recently replaced my router, which almost tripled the max speed I was able to achieve on my laptop, which used to be a maximum of 25mb, but It had almost no effect on my iPad 3, which speed increased only by 5 mb for a maximum of 30mb.
Have any of you be able to achieve over 30mb on the ipad? Does anybody know what is the reason for this limitation? I always assumed that being my ipad 3 newer than my laptop, the wifi card would perform better but I see it is not the case.
Below I'll post a couple of pics, one of the speed test on my laptop performed at speedtest.net, and the other one, a screen capture of the same test on my ipad, using speedtest.net's iPhone app.
If anybody has any ideas as to why is there such a big discrepancy between the two, or if there is anything I can do to tweak the settings on the ipad 3 in order to improve the wifi performance, I'd appreciate it.
