Could you define how long "quite a while is"? Up until a week ago, officially, EPubs were much, much slower then kepubs (along with other differences), unless you were one of the few who got an official post 2.0.0 release. IMO, epubs have always been a second class citizens for Kobo (at least on the Touch).
