LG G3 slow wifi after marshmallow update
Bobby1927

After the latest OTA update I have been having issues connecting to and using in home wifi.  I'm using a Linksys E1200 router with WPA security.  I have added and re-added the wifi multiple times, along with rebooting the router.  My laptop will pull 30+ mbps downloads speeds easily over wifi right next to my phone, while my phone will get .8 mbps.  Note that it is not even 1 mbps.  How can I fix this or roll back to a previous version?

Customer service on twitter had me disable bluetooth.  This let me get full speeds on wifi.  They've contacted LG to figure out how to get both to work at the same time.  It's a bit of a workaround at this point but at least I'm not burning data anymore.

Disabling bluetooth also worked for me! It's strange this slowness only happens on my home WiFi network, and not other WiFi networks.
