How to double the WiFi speed of your OnePlus 3/3T:

Now if a post from XDA member dreinulldrei is to believe, then we have the info that the WiFi configuration used in the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T is the default which is provided by Qualcomm itself. But as per the sources provided, the default configuration disabled the channel bonding in the 2.4GHz frequency and you may need to know that 5GHz frequency networks have channel bonding enabled but if your router is limited to 2.4GHz frequency, then go on and try this method.

By turning on the bonding, the wireless output should significantly get doubled. This method is easy to implement and all you need to do is modify one line in WCNSS_qcom_cfg.ini which you can easily find in system/etc/wifi.

Just change

gChannelBondingMode24GHz=0

to

gChannelBondingMode24GHz=1
