I recently changed from an iphone to a A5 2017.  Now my home wifi is around 80mb, My iPhone would hit 70, My laptop hits 70, This A5 wont go over 20mb.  

 

No idea why, any ideas?

Yes setting up a 5Ghz SSID fixed the issue. Range seems to be worse on 5GHZ though

Yes unfortunatley the range for 5Ghz isnt the best but is less congested etc. 

 

Either moving the router closer or using WiFi extenders may help. 

 

Glad suggestion helped.

Some phones sometimes prefer 2.4Ghz to 5Ghz and visa versa in terms of connection to a Routers WiFi @dj1891

 

So if your Router allows it split the frequencies in the router to 2.4ghz and 5ghz and then try choosing the best for the phone. 

 

Try forgetting the WiFi network in the phone and reset it back up. 

 

In Settings - Apps - Choose to see System Apps via the 3 little dots in the top Rh corner - Choose WiFi- Storage- Clear Data. 

 

Finally a Samsung Experience Store or Samsung Service Centre location can run a diagnostic on the phone.
