    My issue with wifi on my turbo is that I can't connect to wifi at work. When I am at home no issue, but at work I enter my info and then it goes from full strength and drops to no connection and kicks me off and won't connect. I have tried everything not sure what the issue is.

    The DT has the latest WiFi protocols & may have problems with older routers or those in need of updated firmware. This has happened frequently with Cisco brand routers and Cisco has issued a firmware update to correct it. It's happened on other, older routers too but Cisco has been mentioned most often.

    I've seen more than a few mentions of this, I believe it's specific to some routers.
    Some sort of compatibility problem. Forums.motorola.com had a thread or two going about such.

    I was well connected while in my shop twelve steps from my back door watching a youtube video skip this afternoon.
    I'll give them till L releases to fix it, if not it's bye bye..

    Yeah it only happens at my work and I'm sure it's some issue with a Cisco router. Just stinks because I have to use my data all day.

    At home my turbo pulls about 43 down and an iPhone we have pulls 65.

    Wifi is generally ok for me. Speeds are fine but I don't think the WiFi is as sensitive as previous phones I've had. I've also seen a big drop in signal when I put my hand over the top of the phone so that's obviously where the antenna is.

    What bothers me the most is that maybe half the time I reboot the phone when it comes up the WiFi is off even though it was on when I shut the phone down. I know now to double check after a restart but I did miss it a few times and ended up using a good chunk of data that I wouldn't normally have used.

    Ditto. Mine is far faster than my previous Maxx. I have 50 Mbps Internet (Comcast) & have speed tested most every day since the DT was released. I consistently get upper 50's Mbps and equals my 2 ethernet connected desktop computers.

    Mine is too, till I go outside. I mean it in the most kind way possible, but just showing a speed test tells nothing without knowing the circumstances of the test. Further, the nature of wifi is such that my "outside" is not comparable to anyone else's outside. Mine is quite fast within line of sight of my router, but in areas I had decent wifi service on other devices the last two years, I don't with the DT.

    I was having this problem as well, which was really noticeable in certain apps like Facebook. I updated the firmware on my d-link router at home and it solved the problem immediately. Now my phone is blazing fast!

    My isp limits the speed, my speed max is 25 mbps down and 3 up. With the phone I am getting 23.8 down and 2.53 up. That's with my computer and a Roku on. Haven't tried only data yet. Now, my wifi signal will drop when I go to the second floor of my house. Router is in my livingroom so signal has to travel through 3 walls. I will admit the Galaxy S5 had a stronger reception on the second floor then the droid turbo. But, the sound quality is better on the turbo then it ever was on the S5.

    I have a TP Link Archer C7 AC Router, and have a solid connection. I usually connect to the 2.4 band since that's adequate for my purposes, and gives me increased range. My up/down speeds depend on the band I'm connected to. I just now tested, receiving the below results:

    5G: 62.95 down and 8.79 up
    2.4: 37.00 down and 8.80 up
