iPhone Wi-Fi speeds?

So here is the story. At our home we use our ATT data plan as our internet via hotspot. 2 years ago I had an iPhone 5s and it seems that the connection was not great when using the hotspot. Since then I sold the phone and have been using an Amazon Fire Phone and the hotspot is spectacular, I have never had an issue. Not sure why but it is great.

Well I tried my sons iPhone 6 and it just did not seem as good as the Fire phone.

I am thinking of taking advantage of the upcoming iPhone 7 Holiday deals but worry about this situation.


Can anyone comment on their experience?

So here is an update.

My Amazon Fire Phone is still fast than my new SE I just bought in regards to any data use on phone or hot spot.


I just cannot figure it out.

Would JB speed it up? I have almost all background processes turned off

You just bought an iPhone for creating hotspot? I haven't faced the same problem like you but I would recommend to purchase a wireless router that support 3G/4G sim card slot for creating wireless signal instead of using your phone. It's not produce to do such things.
