    Hi guys :) , this is my first post
    My question is : What is the fastest Wifi Speed on iPod touch 5 ?
    I have a fast internet [wifi] at my home it is
    150MB/sec & i never get more than 10Mb speed on my iPod , so is that normal ? Does someone get more than 10mb on his iPod ?
    Plz answer & thanks :D
    Note : I am on iOS 7.0.4 and I have jealbreak

    Whilst I don't own an iPod touch I do own an iPhone 4, 4s and 5s.
    I have a 70mb/s fibre connection at home and achieved no faster than 18mb/s down on my iPhone 4, but have achieved 56mb/s down on my iPhone 5s. I can only assume these speeds are relative to the processor speed. (Tests carried out with the OOKLA Speedtest app)

    :) Ok , how much u got on your iPhone 4S ?
    Because both (the iPod 5 & iPhone 4S) has the same CPU (A5 chip)

    I got 30mbps on a hotel wifi connection (fiber) on my 1Ghz iPad mini (A5)

    Its true speed are processor dependent since it only takes in the amount of bandwidth it can handle. Most of the time, the processor cannot even keep up with rendering webpages vis a vis how fast your isp can throw those webpages at you. Downloading is another thing though.

    150mb/sec is what you get from your ISP to your router. However, wireless speeds are almost always slower than wired speeds (i.e. you're wired straight into your router, which you can't really do with most devices.)
    So, the iPod Touch 5g has an 802.11b/g/n antenna (coincidentally, the same in the 4g), which can get a theoretical maximum of 300 mb/s. However, you're severely limited by the rest of the hardware - r/w speeds on the ssd, processor speed, etc.

    From what I can tell the 10 mb/s is because your connection is bottlenecked by other parts of the hardware. You should definitely test on a laptop (wired or wireless) to ensure that you can get 150mb/s and that the problem is with your iPod's hardware. It would be a shame to waste all that bandwidth ;)

    Surely not with a single stream? Image from keynote announcing the iPod touch 5 :

    Besides, I'm pretty sure it's only the Air and the rMini that support 300Mbps link speeds at this point in time.

    Here are the download speeds I'm getting from some of my devices (100Mbps internet).

    2.4GHz
    iPhone 4 (A4): ~32 Mb/s
    iPhone 4S (A5): ~32 Mb/s
    iPad 3 (A5X): ~32 Mb/s
    iPad 4 (A6): ~33 Mb/s

    5.0GHz
    iPad 3 (A5X): ~35 Mb/s
    iPad 4 (A6): ~58 Mb/s
    iPad Air (A7): ~100 Mb/s

    This is with me sitting a few feet away from the router. Add some distance and some walls and it's easy to see how one might drop down to just 10 Mb/s.

    OMG ,, seriously !!
    On iPad Air 100MB/sec
    That means I can download 1GB game in 10sec
    True ? :-0

    ----------

    Thanks guys for the information :D
    I test it today and I got 17.3 MB /sec
    I think that the [ A5 ] chip doesn't support high speed internet :-( ,, any way I will test it on my friends devices (iPad 4 , iPhone 5 , iPad mini
    And iPhone 4S )
    :D

    Note, it's 100 Mb/s or around 12.5 MB/s. Also, you'd only see that if the server doesn't throttle you. So far, I've only seen maxed out speeds with downloads from Google, Intel, Microsoft and via torrents (Linux distros).

    Here's the latest wireless speed test. Strange results too. :confused:

    1. MacBook Pro (2.6 GHz Intel Core i7) = 68.14 Mbps Down + 18.70 Mbps Up
    2. iPhone 5s = 64.77 Mbps Down + 18.48 Mbps Up
    3. iPhone 4s = 12.92 Mbps Down + 14.32 Mbps Up
    4. iPhone 4 = 18.07 Mbps Down + 10.82 Mbps Up

    Why the hell is my iPhone 4s so slow?! :eek:

    I restarted the tests at least three times for each device. Above are the fastest results from around 8 feet away from a BT HomeHub5.
