    I am using wifi tether for my laptop to use the internet (4G). However, I found an interesting part that the wifi tether on my phone says ~3mbps but on my laptop, the speed of the thing I am downloading is only ~700KB/s. I don't really have other stuff on my laptop that is using the internet since once the download is finished, the data speed on my phone drops to almost 0.

    I was wondering why there's a different data speed between two programs?
    If wifi tether is telling the truth then I should have no problem browsing the internet like a breeze. However, sometimes it will make you wonder if the data speed shows on the phone is real.

    I tested the internet speed on my laptop, it can only peak at around 2Mbps. Therefore, I don't understand where the extra data speed on my phone went. Can anyone explain this phenomenon?

    what ever you were downloading will only download as fast as the site you are downloading it from will allow.
