Slow wifi on iphone, help?

Currently on an iPhone 5 and wifi is painfully slow!

Even though it might clock fast on a speedtest, actual browsing speed is very slow!

I have a router that pumps out 802.11n with 6 internal antennae so signal is not the problem.

I've tried manually entering the router's DNS and it got faster but only for like a day.

Any clues as to how to fix this?

Maybe the server you are browsing off of is slow. Try unplugging and plugging in the router and restarting the iPhone. Try killing the browser from multitasking.
