    Default Improved connectivity after update

    So at my desk at work, I usually get 100dbm. Now I get 88dbm. Typical speed tests during peak hours are around 20mbps but now I just got near 40mbps. Anyone noticing similar?

    I'm glad to hear this. My connectivity has been degrading over time it seems with the note 3. I was planning a hard reset soon but the update with take care of that. Good to see an improvement on the software end. Does anyone know if this update included new firmware for the radios?

    Tested again this morning at my desk at work. Definitely faster speeds by a large margin

    This just changed my thought about the N3 or g3. I'm glad it was sorted out.

    You may have just seen Band 4 launch near you that could very well explain the better speeds
