slow speed of movie download to iPad using WiFi

slow speed of movie download to iPad using WiFi

How long should it take to download a movie I've saved using the DVR to an iPad device?  I'm testing this with a 125 minute movie, and it looks like it will take almost 4 hours to download, if it's successful (20% done after about 45 minutes).  The iPad uses WiFi, and it's connected to the XFINITY cable modem network.  It seems very slow to me.  When I do a speed test on the iPad, it shows around 40 Mbps download speed.

...and worse than that, if the iPad times out and shuts off, the download stops, so I'd have to sit by it and keep it going for 4 hours to make this work.

I have the same problem you mentioned in both posts.  Come on Comcast, what gives?
