I'm posting this question here with my Mac officianados instead of out in the computer wilderness to save the usual razzing from the other guys picking on the iPhone. That being said I was working with a neighbor friend who is a Purple Heart vet from Vietnam fixing his home Wifi. Once we got everything set up we tested his connection from Xfinity and on his wired network he was getting the 400M he was paying for. Then when we tested his Wifi on his older Android he was getting the 400M too. This shocked me since I've never received that on my iPhone. So I hooked up to his Wifi with my iPhone 12 mini and mine never broke 200M. He has the Eero Pro 6 with Wifi 6 or Wifi AX. I have the same Wifi at my house too and I get similar slower results with 1 gig service. I know many of you would kill to have that kind of speed so I don't mean to be speedy greedy but can anyone explain why Androids are so much faster? Is this a setting on my iPhone that I'm missing?
