+Mo Al-Bedah I tried your idea and apparently it's not software related since turning off location services with Bluetooth on didn't resolve the issue.

Three screenshots all using the same wifi device on the same network with the same server "Ooredoo". One with Bluetooth off, the other with location services off, the third is with both of them on. The fastest was with Bluetooth off only.

iPhone 6 WiFi + Bluetooth interference?

I think this needs your attention +Mo Al-Bedah

I have switched my data plan from VIVA to Ooredoo because the wifi download speed was miserable and to my shock, after signing a data contract with Ooredoo, the download speeds were even worse. I went to Ooredoo tech support and spent over two hours trying to figure out what's wrong with the data line to no avail. One guy suggested that the problem is caused by my iPhone which I doubted at the time because my phone line was also Ooredoo and I get download speeds up to 60mbps!

I looked it up online and there were many suggestions that it could be caused by wifi network settings in the privacy>locations pane. When I turned it off I got slightly higher speeds but nothing more than a couple of mbps, from around 1~3mbps up to 5~7mbps.

After a couple of trial and error attempts I turned off Bluetooth which has been always on paired with my Garmen watch and guess what, the speeds jumped all the way over 40mbps!

Now I can confirm that this interference is causing the problem because my wife's iPhone 6 also had the same problem and I was able to surpass it only by switching off Bluetooth.

There was a heated discussion going on the past few days between me and my friends regarding the origin of what we Kuwaitis call "Banak". A salty hard shell seed, brown from the outside and brownish green from the inside, that is used as snack. We often refer to it by its country of origin like Bulgarian, Turkish or Iranian Banak but that's about all we know.

Now I've done my research and I'm glad to say I have finally found the answer. Banak, also known as Baneh in Iran, is a seed from a tree called Pistacia Atlantica. A close relative to pistachio seeds but its nutritional facts are unknown because it's used extensively in the Gulf region only, especially in Kuwait and Bahrain. It is sold raw by weight and gets treated by boiling it in salty water.

You can learn more about the tree and it's seeds by googling its name. #pistacia_atlantica #PistaciaAtlantica

R. Lee Ermey you badass mother**! He's the reason I started watching retro and classic movies. Absolutely outstanding performance in Full Metal Jacket.

If anyone has any better alternative than ARAMEX please share because their service has become very inconvenient with unprofessional customer service where no one answering their call center.

Looks like he's hoping Apple will buy him a new car and hand him a free iPhone 7 for his statement.

How inconvenient and inadequate is talabat.com customer service and live chat? For one, they take forever to reply. Two, they claim to manage customer reviews of each restaurant but either they're only approving positive reviews, or at least disregarding negative ones for that matter OR, which could be even more absurd, they could have handed that feature to the restaurants themselves as each restaurant reviews its own customer critique and approving/disapproving them.

I'm writing this because I had a very negative experience with one of the restaurants and have submitted my review on their app about three weeks ago. My review hasn't turned up on the restaurant's page yet a lot of later reviews have, all of which are very positive reviews.
