General Tablet Edition FAQ

Q: If my issues are taking awhile to download, is there a way to speed this up?

A: Make sure you have a strong WiFi connection. The issues will not download over a 3G connection.  If there are other devices currently on your WiFi connection, consider disabling them temporarily until the issues are done downloading. You may also want to see if any other downloads are in process on your tablet. If there are, wait until they have completed before downloading the issue.

Q: I cannot get an issue to download. What can I do?

A: Make sure you are connected to a Wi-Fi network. Our digital editions are too large to be downloaded using a 3G connection.
