    Have a great Internet and WiFi device, on PC with WiFi and LAN it is fast and stable, never have disconnects or else.
    On Lumia 950 via WiFi it is slow, downloads from Internet or Store sometimes hang or "interrupted", while WiFi stays on at full signal strength, never disconnects.

    When testing Speed with Apps Speedtest.Net and Network Speed Test, results are really disappointing on Speed and Ms. DS from 10Mb/s to 20Mb/s, when on PC's I get from 90Mb/s-100Mb/s+.

    Wanted to redownload GTA: SA and it is impossible, it is slow and download interrupts every 30s-60s. "Check your Network Connection" Resume: Yes/No.

    Phone updated to .36 and new firmware.

    Anyone having same problem, any advice?

    I have a problem with wi-fi speed.
    Although no problems with app downloads, speedtest gets me 6.5 Mbs down speed.
    On 4G I get around 23....

    My wife's Sony Z3Compact gets 30-40 mbs on wi-fi and around 21-23 on 4G.

    In both cases, both phones run on the same networks, wi-fi and carrier.

    I'm in .29 OS version...

    Can others run some tests with speedtest.net app and post some results?

    I'm on .36 with an ATT 950. Ran the test three times when connected to the 100MB fiber circuit at work over WiFi, and I get between 50-63Mbps down and 5 - 8Mbps up.

    .29 OS and earlier has issues with 5Ghz wifi. .36 seems to fix it. Issue persisted after installing new firmware as well. My personal experience is on the 950XL but the issue appears to be across both 950-series devices.

    after a restart and some more runs, it looks ok as long as it goes through a server of my provider, I get like 80-90 mbs down and 2-6 upload.

    Other servers, variable speeds, not really passing 10-15 mbs diwn and 6 up.

    I also ran the test, while connected via wifi, three time and got 120, 98, and 112 for download, and 3.5, 5.5, and 6.4 for upload. I am about 10 feet from my router, which is ac capable (not sure if the phone is connected via ac or n).

    Any advice how to set-up WiFi settings on router and Phone to get best out of it? on PC's at home, there are no problems, just Phone. So my guess it's Phone problem or firmware, even though, it is the new one.
