iPad3 hits wall in US

US consumers have hit the wall when using Apple's latest iPad, with the LTE connectivity seeing some burn through an entire month's data allowance in a matter of hours.
One user, who munched through his monthly 2-GB data allowance within a day of buying the device, said the high-speed 4G connectivity is something of a catch-22 -- encouraging users to stream content, but destroying their monthly allocation in the process.

Another user consumed more than half his 3-GB monthly allowance within five days, after switching to cellular connectivity when Wi-Fi proved too slow for the tablet PC's processor.
