Android Central Question

So actually I have a good WiFi connection which provides good ping on pc but when i downloaded ping mobile the ping seems to be very high even tough I tried connecting other phones but ping was fine. I also tried connecting to 4g and the ping was fine too. Seems like I have ping issue on WiFi only. Pls help.

Install a terminal app like Terminal Emulator for Android. Type

ping aol.com

and see what the ping time looks like. If it's bad there, it's probably hardware. If it's decent there, it's probably the ping app you're using.
