    Default Is Verizon faster than my wifi.?

    Hello everyone, lately I've been noticing that my Verizon network ratings have been higher than my wifi network. Mind that my wifi is the speeds of 90 mbs speeds? Is there a reason for this?

    I don't see wifi speeds of 90 mBps in your screenshot. However, it is believed that Verizon either enabled band 4 on the Note 3 for the AWS spectrum for the national rollout on May 19th or possibly more cities have been turned on prior to the launch. I am thinking that the Note 3 just had band 4 enabled, judging by everyone's posts after the kitkat update.

    I was wondering the same thing the other day, that perhaps Verizon has turned on the new bandwidth early as my download speeds on 4G now are well over 50mbs just outside Baltimore. Never had that kind of speed over the network before.

    The grade is based on the speed at the specific test. Based on your screen shot, Verizon Mobile data is faster than your wifi, so it got a higher grade

    See some of this makes sense but some of it doesn't. I figured since my wifi service through bright house would exceed more than 30 mbs or is it because I have my Xbox on iPad as well as wireless smart TV?
