Samsung S2 slow data download speed
I bought the S2 second hand and everything seems to be working fine except the network download speed (wifi is fine). When I check the speed through speedtest.net app it barely moves on the download section getting approx. 100-200k, the upload seems ok between 1-2 Mbps.
I have a friend with same phone and on same network and his runs fine between 1-4Mbps, so I tried his sim in my phone but same issue. The only difference I could see is that he's running ice cream sandwich and different firmware etc, mine came with jelly bean 4.1.2 update. (not rooted)
I'm hoping there's some fix to this maybe an update or setting ?
If someone could help me I would be so grateful
