Default Mifi/Touch internet faster than Storm in same location

Please Login to Remove!

I was very unhappy with how slow the Storm was to bring up web pages. Many times, it took over 1/2 a minute for an average webpage to come up. I recently bought a Mifi unit to use with the EVDO-A data service that my Storm was used on. At the SAME location, the Touch brings up web pages in a few seconds--not terribly slower than when running on my home wifi (12Mb/s Comcast signal). This tells me that Verizon's data network isn't as super-slow as had seemed to me--now it seems the issue was the Storm itself.

Anyone else have experience with internet speeds on the Storm being significantly slower than when using aircards on a net/notebook? Or compared to some other EVDO-A capable handsets?
