iPad browsing extremely slow

Over the past few months internet browsing on my iPad has become unbearably slow. I have cleared cookies and cache, rebooted the iPad (holding down sleep and Home keys until the Apple appears), and even installed another browser (Grazing) to see if it was just a Safari thing. It is not. I have an iPad 1, and have primarily used it to do internet browsing and book reading.


This did not happen when I installed the 5.1.1 OS. However, it was not until after I did install 5.1 that the response time started degrading. Now, I really don't want to even try to browse, because it has become so bad.


Also, this is not a bandwidth speed thing because the response time on my Mac laptop and on my iPhone are absolutely within an acceptable range.


Does anyone have any ideas about why this may be happening, or have any suggestions about how I might be able to speed things up?


Thanks for any help you can provide!





iPad, iOS 5.0.1
