    I just did a connection speed test comparing the connection with and without a case (Marware EcoVue) and it turned out to be:

    Without case
    5mbps

    With case
    2.5mbps

    Anyone else have this problem and is there a way to correct this?

    I didn't search for other threads with this issue by the way.

    Does the EcoVue have magnets? If so, perhaps it's interfering a little with the signal. I think I've seen people commenting that their cases with magnets were interfering with the compass feature.

    I have the same case with no slow down of speed. Did you run the test several times? I sometimes get different results running two tests in a row.
