Mifi slow

Okay so every review I've read talks about how super fast the Mifi 2200 is but it takes forever pages to download and don't even try to watch a video because it stops every 30 seconds to buffer. I thought maybe it was my computer but i have my roku which is a router you have to watch netflix movies instantly  and yeah that doesn't work either movies stops just like the computer to reload. Is there something I can do to speed it up?
