[Q]Why is Personal Hotspot so slow?
I have a new iPhone 4S and I'm a student. I live in a student campus and we have Wireless internet as access point. I'm using a desktop PC without a wireless card. So, I tried to use my iPhone as a modem to get internet. It's acrually works but it's so so slow. It stucks at loading page on Firefox and almost no oimages are displayed.
This is not from the internet. Right now I'm using my other smartphone, a Samsung Galaxy SII and the internet works as it should.
What should I do to be able to use my iPhone instead.
I run the latest iOS, itunes, drivers for the PC and I have Windows 7 SP1 x64 everything is very latest.
Thanks in advance
iPhone 4S, iOS 5.0.1

If it can't load images that does sound slow.
Which country and carrier (network) are you using?
Nexus 5 32GB Black (Three UK) | Nexus 7 (2012) | Kindle Paperwhite (2013)
iPhone 4 32GB
White MacBook (Late 2007)
Windows 8.1 | iCloud, Dropbox, Spotify Premium

I get up to ~7meg tethering to my iphone 4S, so this does seem odd. Then again, I live right by the 3G mast I'd like to reiterate the questions above.

I have the same issue. I just gave up and use an android tablet. Even if my iPhone is getting 3 mb down the device will only get like .3 mb down.
If I turn on my 4g tablet on wifi hotspot I'll get this
This is still odd because the tablet will be getting a constant 30 mb down but at least this works.
I don't know why my iPhone doesn't broadcast more bandwidth.
