    Cortana location enable slows wifi


    I have a brand new HP laptop with 8gig of ram, and noticed that with cortana location enabled my wifi speeds slow way down especially since the last windows update. Has anyone else noticed this since the latest windows 10 update which was suppose to update cortana?

    That's odd. I haven't noticed any wifi speed issues until I installed the latest update. I did see other people having the same issue though on the HP forum. A poster suggested to to off location and once I did that I am getting full 30meg down. With location on, I'm getting 18 to 20 meg down.
