Firestick speed

Have a firestick testing at 13mbs. My network speed is 219mbs. Haven’t a clue why. Anyone?

Re: Firestick speed

This has been discussed here before, likely you have either an early Firestick which dosen't do 5g or it's a later one that's not seeing the 5g beacuase of Amazon's flawed 5g implentation on the device.

If it's the latter, you can look to see which channel the Hub is using, if it's one of the DFS ones,  the Firestick won't see it.

That said, you don't need much above about 15-20mbps for consistent 4K streaming on a Firestick. 

Mine gets about 100mbps (says the speed test app), but the only real difference is that Netflix films start playing quicker, makes no difference to the quality.

Re: Firestick speed

If you're on 2.4GHz try 5Ghz, my stick connects on the latter band at about 50Mbps.

Re: Firestick speed

It’s an early one. Just using it as something for my boy’s tv. Use an android box myself. Full speed ahead on that.
