iPad 3 owners says WiFi too slow, but LTE too fast

There never seems to be a shortage of bugs with new product releases, one that plagues Apple many times. The iPad 3 seems to be filling up complaints of its Wi-Fi being too slow, while the 4G connection is quite ‘speedy-Gonzales’. In an era where cell phone companies are trying to push back the data-drain usage on their network — this one sure feels backwards to many.

Apple’s support community is filling up with complaints and concerns over the range of the tablet’s Wi-Fi, where the first and second generation iPad’s had no issues. If Wi-Fi is too slow, perhaps jumping on the 4G network will solve the problem — and it does to some degree.

Brandon Wells, a new iPad 3 owner and web developer, found a fast throughput on the LTE (4G) network in comparison to the Wi-Fi streaming “March Madness” games the next day — until he burned through his Verizon Wireless plan in about two hours of streaming. Wells had already used up 2GB of data on his $30 a month subscription.

Verizon, however, said a larger package is available for those who wish to stream data with its $50 a month (5GB of data) plan and urged its customers to switch over to Wi-Fi when possible. If Brandon Wells was able to eat 2GB of data in 2 hours, that puts the $50 subscription to 5-hours of usage. Granted this is excessive streaming on Wells’ part, and users will need to use Wi-Fi at every cost — or be without LTE while traveling because you used it all up.

Wells said the Verizon service is “kind of a Catch-22,” as he points out the quality of streaming “is fantastic. But man, you’re really limited in terms of the amount of content you can consume.”

Apple has pushed out an update (iPad GM 8C134b) to resolve the problem, but the support community continues to fill-up with complaints.
