Reset phone: press both home and power buttons for at least 10 seconds, releasing when the Apple logo appears.
"Forget" the network and set it up again.
FYI, the apps in the "multitask" bar aren't actually running and consuming resources. Except for a handful of nav and audio apps, they don't "run multi-task."

I had the wifi problem also with my iPhone5 low speeds. I guess there is some IOS 6 software glitch for the wifi. For some reason I was playing with the settings on it and turned off the cellular data did a speedtest.net run on it and my speed went up then when i turned cellular data on speeds went back down (this happens when I'm pretty far from my modem). Go to settings then general then cellular and you will see cellular data. Turn it off and now anything you use will restrict all data to wifi and for some reason my wifi speed went up drasmatically.
Hope this helps!

No luck on turning off cellular data. Besides, that seems awfully ridiculous to have to turn off cell data every time you want to run wi-fi...??
I tried resetting the phone, no luck. I've read other posts that this occured with iOS6... Apple??

I'm having the exact same problem mergedplot. My computer is consistantly at 13-14 Mbps, my phone is consistantly at 1.5-1.8 Mbps. I don't understand it! I reset the router and the phone hit 13, I ran a test right after that and it was back down to 1.8. I have cleared cookies and history, reset the phone, closed apps, and tried the cellular data shut-off. No. Dice. Apple - Please un-screw this.
*Edit* All of these tests were run on WiFi connection. Obviously....
