    Anyone know why when doing a speedtest with the Speed Test App I get scores less than when using the same app on my mac?

    You're comparing apples and oranges.
    Sorry, couldn't resist. :)
    The WiFi speeds of a smart phone are not going to be anywhere close to the WiFi speeds of a computer.

    Yeah, he's right. Even the speed test on a PS3 doesn't compare to my laptop. It's mainly because the browser isn't as optimized for the test compared to Safari or Firefox on your computer.
