Hi. I have a 1Mbps broadband connection with a Modem-Router device supplied by my provider.
Now I get download speeds up to 120-130KBps on my PC (connected via LAN), my laptop (via Wifi), my phone, the Galaxy S2 I9100 (via Wifi again) and my sister’s Galaxy S3 (Wifi as well). Video buffering at 360p on Youtube is fine as well on all these devices. I get smooth surfing speeds with normal loading pages on my PC & Lappy.
The problem is that surfing speed on my phone and that of my sister’s phone is extremely slow, be it the Facebook app, Tapatalk app, normal pages in the Stock Browser, Opera Mini, anything. Everything is slow as a snail. No background downloads, cloud backups or any network hogging resources run in the background.
Both phones are stock, unrooted, untouched, JB 4.1.2, so no ROM troubles.
Does anyone have an idea as to what the problem might be? Because it is really weird that download speeds are fine but surfing speeds suck so bad.
Already tested – Sitting right by the router, resetting it, even formatted my Galaxy S2, tried connecting only one device at a time keeping all others disconnected. Every thing yielded same results. Normal download but hell bent slow surfing speeds on the mobile devices.
I have had this exact same issue once before, but that stayed for a day or two and automatically resolved itself. But this time it’s been more than a week!
