The iPhone 5 wifi bug is really affecting me

I have not gone over 500MB in about two years. There's wifi at work, school & home. But this weak wifi needs to be fix ASAP. I tried 6.1 beta and there's no fix. If anyone knows a fix please tell me. It's really bad. When I say my grandmother has full bars in the kitchen on her iPhone 4S on 5.1 I will have no bars while being next to her. It'll say LTE.

Have you tried 6.0.2?

That was supposed to fix anyt WiFi bugs for the i5.

Personally, I didn't have any "bugs".

EDIT: I'm guessing 6.2 Beta is an "upgrade" even from 6.0.1?

Yeah I'm on 6.0.2. 6.1 is the next slightly "big" update for iOS 6. Only developers can update to it at the moment which is beta. 6.0.2 didn't fix anything for me. I still have weak wifi.

Take a number and line up, you're not the only one with wifi issues. There are lots of people here with the same problem. Wifi never seems to be fixed even when Apple says so. Wifigate has existed for a long time.

Go to the Apple Store and get a new phone. I've swapped at least 5 phones that exhibit this same behavior in store.
