The Dave Posted October 20, 2013 Share Posted October 20, 2013 I've been thinking about this particular phenomenon for the last couple of months and decided to make mention of it. For the past few months after NV upgrades were completed, I have found myself turning my wifi off more frequently in favor of using Sprint 3G to browse the internet and check email. I have found that using 3G results in much faster connections to webpages after clicking on links and allows gmail to load faster than using wifi. There are times when it just sits there as if confused about loading a site when I am on wifi. Once I turn it off, things load practically the instant I click on any link. This isn't just using one particular wifi site, either. This is using the network at my house (comcast 30/10 using dlink wireless n), two sites at work (comcast business class 50/10 using dlink and a linksys) and another area at work uses AT&T DSL (25 down, not sure of up) using a netgear. I've also connected to wifi at various public hotspots. Is this just the case of a universal wifi congestion since practically everywhere uses the technology and it's just become jammed up? I've connected both on 2.4 ghz and 5 ghz frequencies with similar results. It's odd to think that Sprint's 3G EVDO network has become this dependable and fast compared to such a variety of high speed options out there. I was just pondering this today as I turned off wifi yet again because I was tired of my Wells Fargo app just sitting there at the login screen. wifi 3G Edit: love my wimax 4G 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
