Default 4.4.4 Radio

As many people know, 4.4.3 radio has caused some issues for people, namely increased battery drain, thus I ended up switching back to 4.4.2 just to enjoy the good battery life.
What is the 4.4.4 radio like? Does it have the increased battery drain of 4.4.3, or is it battery friendly like the 4.4.2?

Does this help?

Yeah 4.4.4 is working a treat on T-Mobile at least. I used to get WiFi and mobile data disconnections where I would need to reboot my Nexus 5. But ever since the 4.4.4 modem came out, I haven't had a single disconnect.

Go into your router settings and change "channel width" to 20mhz

hmm, it was already at 20mhz, it's i think android related only, 4.4.4 just slightly improved it, earlier @ 4.4.2, the icon used to turn orange after about 12hrs., in 4.4.4, it's 36-48hrs, but it eventually does turn orange and i just toggle wifi on the device and it again works for another 36-48hrs.
