Unhappy Very slow WiFi transfer speeds!!

I got a nice shiny HTC One through from EE last week and whilst waiting for them to now work out how to move my number across from Orange I have been trying to get the phone setup.

The file transfer speeds across my network using WiFI is atrocious. I have tried to transfer a 13mb file off my office server to my HTC One and gave up after four minutes something whilst I can copy it across to my Desire HD in 32 secs - this is with both phones beside each other less than a meter from the Wifi router and both running ES File Explorer for the transfer.

Any thoughts what could be the problem?
Cheers,

Julian

Thanks, but I don't think it is a software app issue. The fact that the same app on the Desire works as expected indicates it is phone specific.

Looking around I have seen issues with the Android OS version, but no info relating to a specific fix and I suspect it is too early to see any trends relating to the One.

Just been trying from another access point and still deathly slow compared to my Desire HD in a 'side by side' test.

Any other thoughts?

I've been doing a bit more digging.

I have a main router and then two access points on a gigabit network backbone and currently all the Wifi is running at B, G, and N @ 2.4Ghz on Channel 11.

Both the Desire and One are showing a connection speed of 72Mbs, so theoretically the two phones are operating at the same speed however the download speeds are radically different.

To transfer a 13.5Mb file took:-

HTC Desire HD - 32 seconds
HTC One 12mins 58 seconds.

There has got to be a problem with it somewhere.

Any suggestions appreciated.
Cheers,

Julian

OK, just put a call in to HTC support who were worse than useless suggesting waiting for the next software update even though they admitted it may be phone specific.

Is there anyone out there willing to run a test for me to let me know what wifi speeds they are getting.

My HTC One has been averaging 17Kb/s whilst my Desire HD is clocking 409Kb/s.

What are you getting from your HTC Ones?


THanks.
