I have FiOS 75/35 with an Actiontec Rev I router.
If I run a test with the speedtest.net app on an iPad 2 in the same room as the router, I get 42 mb/s down and 30 mb/s up.
That's a little better than what you're experiencing but still not as good as I see on a Windows laptop or a MacBook Pro in the same location. With either of those other devices I max out at slightly over 75/35 mb/s.
I'm assuming the issue is a hardware limition in the iPad 2.
I get almost exactly the same results with my iPhone 5s.

Our results do sound similar. For me, the speeds I get on the iOS devices are good enough for what I used them for, and we all know that Steve's legacy was to not allow any performance tweaking of those devices.

curious if you have WEP incryption or WPA2? if it is WEP you should change it to WPA2 for best performance.
Not sure if you're asking me or the original poster, but in my case, I definltely have WPA2 enabled. The perfomance improvement is a plus but I care more about the signifcant security improvement.
