I have a Samsung Note 3 running Kit Kat 4.4.2 Unrooted

For some reason the data connection rate is about a tenth on this phone than it was on my S3 using the same network, so bad in fact that most of the time it is unusable.

My current ISP provides wifi hotspots that cover the entire town I live in and most of the rest of the country.

Now these hotspots work great connecting anywhere up to 55 Mbps but they are not as fast as my home wifi connection.

What I am looking for is some way to prioritize the wifi connection so that when I am at home it connects to the home wifi and when I am away from home it connects to the hotspots.

As it sits now if I leave my house it will switch to the hotspot as soon as I drop out of range of my home wifi but it will not switch back when I come home.

Thanks for that but I had already tried that, it works fine on my wifes S3 but on my note 3 it does not seem to want to work properly, again it does it when I get out of range of the home network but switching back when I come home is very hit and miss, sometimes it will sometimes it won't and if I have to keep manually checking it then it kind of defeats the purpose of having it
