Seems like I have a strong LTE signal here at home so I turned off my Wifi for faster speed. Is this something commonly done by the community here?
Wifi uses less battery than cellular data.I am on a 2GB plan, but I usually can't be bothered to turn on the wifi radio. It eats the battery and its a pain. If I have to download something big I will flip it on, otherwise it is off. I have never gone over my limit. And with LTE, since Friday, I have used 228MB of data.
I'm a medium to heavy user and can get wifi at work. I've been turning wifi off and keeping LTE on to test battery life solely on LTE. Getting better than expected battery life on LTE.Seems like I have a strong LTE signal here at home so I turned off my Wifi for faster speed. Is this something commonly done by the community here?
That's a good point. I usually turn my on at night for my iCloud back up.you cant use airplay and wireless syncing with WiFi off though, I'd choose to keep it on just for the convenience of using those over the web speed increase as I rarely use my phone for the web while at home anyway.
That's only happening if time is circular, more like in 5-8 years no one will have unlimited data. Frankly I'm shocked (but not complaining) that AT&T allowed me to retain my $30 unlimited on 4G.Always keep Wifi on in my house as it is still faster than LTE.
I have 40MBPS download. 5 Upload.
I am only getting 1 to 2 bars of LTE in my house so Wifi is the best option but when I am out and about I get full bars of LTE.
I just hope that within 5-8 years everyone can get unlimited data.
