    Well, what's a good app for testing speeds and I might be able to answer that. (A good free app, that is.) Or, at least, what are you using?

    Actually speedtest.net sends you to the app store where you can d/l a free speed test app, thus answering my original question and providing an answer:
    In Lake Arrowhead, California, using Charter Cable:
    10.94 Mb/s down
    2.03 Mb/s up (yes, megabits/s upload)

    When I'm back to west los angeles I'll test there also.

    SpeedtestX HD app shows my home Wi-Fi between 5-6 Mb on a regular basis. My provider is AT&T U-Verse with 6 Mb speed; however I have a Linksys WR54G router behind their 2-Wire gateway and have their gateway Wi-Fi turned off.

    There are one of two scenarios here - either the iPad's WiFi is garbage or the Speedtest app is garbage.

    I get .91MB/s download speed on my iPad.

    I get 8MB/s download speed on my desktop using the same WiFi connection.

    Using speedtest.net app same speed as desktop...that explains why u think browsing sucks.
