Moto G8 Plus, problems with wifi 2.4hgz, maximum speed is 72mbps

2020-01-28, 20:36 PM

I have problems with wifi 2.4hgz, the maximum speed is 72mbps. The router runs on the N protocol only 40hgz. Is this software restriction or device level?

Is it possible to fix this in future software updates?
What would be full support inclusive up to 150mbps

Not all countries allow WiFi operation with 80 or 160 MHz channel bandwidth, therefore manufacturers insert radio hardware restriction to ensure regulatory compliance and compatibility.  Users shouldn't care, since 72 Mbps is more than enough to support HD video streaming.  The WiFi is pushed over a shared analog+digital radio channel, not your own private dedicated fiber optic line!

another honor 8x phone runs at 150mbps. 72mbps is not enough! because it’s when the signal is excellent, the worse the signal, the lower the speed, on average it is from 20 to 58mbps! and this is what about the Internet, but if I exchange files in 1-5GB on the network, between devices, then what about? use pathetic 20-72mbps?
