    So I moved into a new place and the landlord has wi-fi, which I'm more than happy to use. It's rated at 25mbps (wish it were faster but whatever), but I seem to have an issue.

    It's really slow. Like REALLY slow. When I run speedtest on it, it ranges from 0.96mbps to just under 3mbps.

    I never had issues in the past at my parents place, where it consistently hit the top end of our internet speeds.

    For comparisons sake I also ran speedtest on my iPhone and iPad, and they seem to be within normal ranges (15-25mbps) at any given time on the wifi.

    What gives?

    Running a mid 2012 13" cMBP on Yosemite if that helps.

    Far from here

    you might try this :

    - turn the MBP's wifi off
    - in Keychains, type in "Airport" in the search field, and delete the entries related to this network.
    - in System Preferences / Network / Wifi / Advanced / Wifi tab: select the network and delete it ("-" sign).

    - restart the Mac
    - turn its wifi on
    - select the network, you will need to enter the password.
    If you are no prompted to enter the password, you missed something in Keychains.
    - once you are connected to the network, return to :
    System Preferences / Network / Wifi / Advanced / Wifi tab
    and drag the network to the very top of the list.
