    Got my pad today love most everything about it except the net. It's like 20 times slower than dial up for me. I really wish it weren't because this could be a deal breaker for me. I am using the built in wifi in my Mac mini with a dsl connection. Had some wifi strength problems at first but they seem to have chilled a bit. Is this normal pages taking a very long time to load?

    I have tested my Ipad all over the house, McDonalds, Panera, Starbucks, etc. and no problems with pages loading. The only slow down I have is when the the App store is downloading updates in the background-that slowed it down a bit but not so much that it was a problem.

    I downloaded Speed Test from the app store. That will give you an idea of download and upload speeds on different networks.

    Slow speeds are usually a problem with the service, not the unit. Try comparing it with another iPad where possible, and with a laptop in other locations. In any case, this is not normal for the speed to be any slower than another computer.

    If you don't have another device at home to check your wifi then try to go to a public hotspot and see if you're experiencing the same slow speeds. If you are then exchange it. Apple has been very good about offering replacements for defective units.

    its def the service not the ipad (unless it's defective...which is possible)...I've been getting unbearably slow speeds at work so I started tethering to my droid when it starts slowing down and it speeds right up again....at home I average about 15Mbps...so no slowness at all there!

    The only time I have slow loading is from the websites server problem, and I've never gotten my ipad to anywhere near 20% lol.
