    I was never able to consistently use my 6 Plus connected to my Time Capsule ac model over 5Ghz ac because of the weak wifi antenna system in said 6 Plus.

    With the 6s Plus? Everything is quite different, and I can finally use 5ghz two floors up from the router with great success! Everything loads very snappily. Using the free app Wi-Fi SweetSpots, the difference in connection speed to the router is consistently 2-to-3 times faster on the 6s Plus versus the 6 Plus.

    Guess which is which? Also, the 6s Plus is in an Apple case for this test, and the 6 Plus is naked. Both tests run individually.

    Thanks for posting this.

    I switched my phone to the 5GHz band and damn. I am getting 280Mbps (My internet plaan is 300). So it is almost full speed over wifi.

    That is damn impressive. and yeah, the 5ghz signal was garbage on my 6 plus

    I get better results as well; iPad mini 4 and iPad Air 2 actually get faster wifi speeds, but it may be because of congestion at night.

    MIMO. And yes. So happy with the 6s Plus. It's just awesome.

    My 6S Plus has MUCH worse Wi-Fi (quite bad) and my regular 6 was quite good.

    What kind of setting if any on the phone might I try?

    Sorry for the offtopic but can anyone compare iPad Air 2 Wifi speeds with 6S/Plus on AC?....they are on par on specs?

    The iPhone 6s seems to be as fast as the iPad Air 2 over 5ghz ac in my testing. Sometimes the 6s was faster, actually. I don't even...

    My 6s Plus keeps switching to LTE when connected to my 5 Ghz network and when I just checked, it couldn't even see any 2.4 Ghz networks at all (there's 6 nearby including mine) nor could it see my iPad Air 2's personal hotspot until I restarted the iPhone.
