For a class of quasi-contractive operators defined on an arbitrary Banach space, it has been shown that the Picard iteration technique converges faster than the Mann iteration technique. In this paper we make a comparison of the Picard and Mann iterations with respect to their convergence rate for a more general class of operators called quasi-contractions in metrizable topological vector spaces. It was observed that the Picard iteration converges faster than the Mann iteration for this class of maps. This answers the question posed by Berinde in his paper.
