On my wifi connection at home web pages load up in a good hurry on my Android device (Samsung Galaxy S6).

They take a good long time on my PC and on on wifes Mac Book Air.

I would think hardware/software/os wouldn't matter and page loading would be a function of the speed of the wifi I have. But obviously not.

Anything I can learn from this to increase the internet speed for my PC and my wifes laptop?

Many things can affect these speeds. Hardware, software and potentially OS. have you run speed test on all devices to ensure you are getting the same download speeds?

just google "Speed Test".....it will be "speedtest.net by ookla"

See if the speeds are the same if they are then there is more digging if they arent...well there is more digging lol. This will at least tell you what your download speeds are on each device.

What type of wireless network are you B? G? N? AC? and what band 2.4Ghz 5Ghz? Many things could matter.

Wow. All of the upload speeds I've ever tested are not even close to the download speeds. I expect to see 1/10 ratio.

Depends on the line. Most ADSL / Cable connections are asynchronous with upload speeds a fraction of the download ones. If however you have a leased line, they tend to be synchronous, and have roughly the same upload and download speeds. Most consumer connections are async.

At work our backup ADSL is 6mb/1mb and our leased line is 20mb/20mb.

I think you mean "asymmetric" vs "symmetric" here.
