currently near a Barnes and Noble and I am a good 20 meters from them at a cafe and im getting Full WiFi not sure how the antennas are reconfigured on the 9.7 Pro but wow. Also have LTE and the 9.7 Pro uses LTE Advanced. But back to WiFi even my cellphone can't pick up the WiFi signal nor can my gfs iPhone 6s. I was going through Ifixit and they noted about halfway on the right some new Antenna connectors they had never seen before https://www.ifixit.com/Teardown/iPad+Pro+9.7-Inch+Teardown/60939 Also the 9.7 Pro is the first iPad to ditch that white plastic antenna portion on the backs of most iPads. My guess is the engineers found a better way.
