Why are Apple devices slower on my internet?

Episode 1129 (13:53)

Lee from West Hills, CA

Lee now has 100Mbps through Time Warner Cable and he's excited. Leo says that's in direct response to Google wiring up communities with Gigabit internet access. Time Warner calls it "GigaPower." But when Lee connects with his Apple devices, they can't keep up with it.

Leo says that using a Speed Test is good because it is doing a raw transfer, which is different from how a browser performs. Browsers deal with plugins and other add-ons. It may just be that the Apple devices Lee is using have slower processors or the RAM may be insufficient. He still is getting fast speeds on his iPad, just not the full 100 Mbps, which Leo says is really a "first world problem." It may take more investigation to determine why this is happening, though.
