Some US institutions struggle with iPad connectivity issues

April 21, 2010

The iPad is having difficulty being accepted at George Washington University and Princeton University due to network stability issues, and Cornell University is also experiencing connectivity problems with the device and is concerned about bandwidth overload. Such problems could be a blow to Apple, which has gone after the post-secondary market by showcasing the iPad's portability and availability of electronic books. Many school networks are accepting the device without problems, and some institutions are even embracing the iPad. For example, Pennsylvania-based Seton Hill University has promised free iPads and MacBooks to all first-year students next fall. Wall Street Journal
