All testing with RP3.
What Wifi module/hardware are you using? The only change in #0717r (compared with #0716) is the replacement rtl8812au wifi driver, and the Kodi fix from @garbear. If your WiFi is not using thr rtl8812au driver then you should not see any difference in network performance.
Its a Broadcom chip. That's about all I know. Build #717r did not work. Build #0716 did not work. Build #0717 works fine.
I ran grep and got this:
LibreELEC:~ # dmesg | grep brcm
[ 4.448877] usbcore: registered new interface driver brcmfmac

Don't know if that helps.
