telnet in terminal is slow

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
I am using telnet in terminal and its is being slow compared to telnet on my pc laptop. Side by side connected to the same site the telnet on the mac via terminal sometimes takes several seconds for a command to go through. Any idea if there is something I can tweak to change this?

    Yeah, telnet is a no no, as it has no security. Always use SSH, everything should support it by now.
