Default If you're experiencing slow wifi speeds.

Try turning off your mobile data while using WiFi. This has my phone using the full home network capabilities for the first time. You can set an automation (tasker, llama, etc) to take care of it for you automatically if it's helpful.

For myself speed test results are up and websites aren't taking forever to load anymore. I will do a few more tests later to confirm.

Just to share my findings: Turns out it's an interference issue with Location mode: Battery Saving and having the WiFi frequency band set to Auto.

With Wifi frequency set to "2.4ghz only" to match my network there is no interference however this lacks 5ghz mode for any other networks. Using Auto with High Accuracy or Device only location modes was also allowing full WiFi transfer speeds.

Having the data on or off does not seem to be the issue and is handled by the phone automatically.
