UFO delivers speeds of around 900Mbps straight into your home, but even the best devices have limits to the speeds they can manage. Most smartphones and tablets have small antennas and batteries built in with other components, which limits their ability to transmit and receive Wi-Fi signals.
Some older devices only support 2.4GHz - a wireless frequency that is more susceptible to signal interference. Newer devices usually support 5GHz, which is faster, but has its limits. To put this into context, take a look at the maximum wireless throughput speeds you can expect on your devices on each frequency band.

Laptops and computers generally have better capacity for higher speeds than smartphones and tablets, however, there are many different factors that affect Wi-Fi speed. In reality, you'll only be able to achieve speeds near 900Mbps over Wi-Fi if you're using a high-spec computer with the very best wireless technology, in close range of your router.
If you're using a device with a lower spec, there are still some things you can do to get better speeds. Take a look at our tips below:
