    Today i ran a test with laptop Wifi connection.
    Home. 2518
    Verizon SC30 3G 1640
    BIONIC on 4G. 960

    Ran test 3 times

    So why is Bionic hot spot so slow?

    I've noticed the Bionic 3g connection seems to be slower than on other devices.

    The answer is 42.
    Oh, wait, you mean to tell me you need to know the question now?
    Well, I can't answer that.

    It might be the fault of the Wifi connection between the Bionic and the PC, especially if you also use bluetooth. Having bluetooth enabled seems to cut the speed of the Bionic's wifi chipset by around 75%. I noticed this after trying a number of things to figure out why my wifi was so much slower than my 4G connection.

    Yep I turned my Bluetooth OFF. It was messing with my connection and would mute my volume and try to connect to other cars when my car was not around! Rediculous!
