    this is the thing, i have a 5mb download speed at home.

    with me cabook pro the speed test gives aroun 500 kb download.

    but with the iPhone and iPad it doesn't past 25kbps !!!

    i have two days that way and its driving me crazy. i tried everything. restored both, and the same. go to my office, i have the same download speed !! not pass 25-30 kbps !!!

    i did jailbreak both, and restored both since i saw this problem, thinking that could be some tweak or something. but now with the full restore on both and without jail the problem persist !!

    any help guys ? what can it be ?

    Where do you live? That's pretty slow in general, but could depend where your located and who your provider is. I use Comcast as an example and my wifi at home always averages at least 21Mbps download.

    But your phones should be similar to your network even at it's slow speeds, I just did both test and my Macbook Pro said 21.39 down and phone said 21.964 down. So something is causing interference on your devices, did you check the network settings/router etc?

    Reset your router. If that makes no difference, see what frequency it's running on. Are other devices connected via WiFi running at 500kbs? Or does your, erm, "cabook pro" connect via Ethernet?
