Default [Q] Apps Slow on Wifi

I've been having issues the last few moths since I've switch to my Comcast 2 in 1 router. I'm getting 17ms ping, 20-35 Mbps download and 10 Mbps upload speeds form the speedtest app on my phone, however when I pull up apps like Instagram, Facebook and Youtube, the content loads very slow. In fact, when I turn off wifi and use LTE, the apps load much faster. I've searched and see people having the same issue with apps loading slow on wifi, but no solution. Anybody know ho to fix this?

- Stock Sprint unrooted Android 4.3 ROM.
- I've reset the router a few times
- My work iPhone 5 (AT&T) on the same wifi connection loads the same apps in a snap, faster than LTE.

I am having the same exact issue and I also have Comcast. Facebook, gmail, all take forever to load over WiFi! My download speeds are similar to the OP. Very annoying!
