You are not the Pentagon

Gizmodo author recommends switching to WEP to increase WIFI quality on the iPhone 5, saying, "You are not the Pentagon."

How to Fix Your iPhone 5’s Crappy Wi-Fi

You might not be the Pentagon, but that doesn't make your privacy less important. You shouldn't sacrifice security for convenience. If you can actually notice a difference in quality by switching to WEP from WPA encrypted WIFI, then the problem is your device, not the network. You can argue all day about how it doesn't matter since they can both be cracked, but that doesn't mean you should make it easier for an attacker. You shouldn't take a step backwards for convenience.
