WLAN speed

Is WLAN less fast?

If you surf via WLAN, you may not achieve the full Internet speed technically available on your connection with your subscription. Besides the distance to the router and type of building, other factors may impair speed: devices with older WLAN standards, use of WLAN repeaters or connection kits and the router position.
