    Where are you accessing the internet: home or on a network?

    I've had router problems which affected the performance of my wireless desktop. Internet speed was crawling to a halt. I bought a new router, and now I'm back in business.

    Have you tried clearing your Safari cache?

    Have you ruled out your home network internet connection as the source of the slowdown? What kind of signal strength is showing on your device? Weaker signal strength will translate into longer download/rendering time.

    is the issue with the internet or the actual speed of the app safari?

    If its with safari, then troubleshoot the app and ipod. if its with the surfing, then troubleshoot the network/router/connection.

    Another suggestion: Make sure your Wi-Fi connection is locked, your neighbours etc. could be connecting to your Wi-Fi without you even knowing it - causing it to slow down.

    Another thing to try - switch the channel on your wireless router. I saw someone say that most companies ship their defaulting to like channel 6 or something, so if you've neighbors using the same channel, you're more likely to have interference. Try like channel 11 or something...
