It seems that no one has told the samsung fanboy who also the author of that comparison test (neo vs ace) that like galaxy ace, neo also supports Wi-Fi 802.11n network which supports approx. 300 Mbps of rated (theoretical, as advertised, another theory says it's 150 Mbps) bandwith that in real life will ultimately fail to run in this max speed performance. 

11 Mbps - it's the theoretical peak bandwith of an 802.11b wireless connection. 

*To the author of the comparison test: Xperia neo-V supports Wi-Fi b/g/n. Thanks.
