    Turning bluetooth off causes the WiFi to work as intended but turning it on and leaving it on causes it to slow down to an unbearable pace!

    I get 42Mbps with Bluetooth off, and 16Mbps with Bluetooth on AND connected to something.

    I'll investigate further.

    Edit: Bluetooth works on 2.4GHz, so it can interfere with 2.4GHz WiFi. Try switching to 5GHz WiFi - problem solved.

    Except when your router forces 2.4 ghz because 5.0 ghz cant reach too far

    It only happens to me when I'm actively connected to a Bluetooth device. Otherwise, on or off it doesn't affect anything.

    yes, this kind of makes sense. im sure changing the 2.4ghz channel on the wifi router might make a difference as well. also im sure this could happen on most phones, tho funny that ive never heard anyone bring it up

    Some routers have advanced settings that enable "Bluetooth Coexistence" mechanisms, but since it depends on client support, the benefits are hard to gauge.

    I can't imagine that the prevalence of Bluetooth speakers and headsets used to play music being streamed through wifi has helped things.

    Next you're going to tell us you also frequently enjoy microwave popcorn. : /

    The concurrent issue is that I use multiple smartwatches and it really bogs down productivity on 2.4 ghz wifi, specifically enterprise routers which solely do 2.4
