Interesting. I've heard that reported as well, so I believe it's a valid point. It has never been my experience though on either of my Fi cards. I can be shooting out in my backyard and uploading with a perfectly normal data rate.
I wonder if there is something to either the host body or the wireless router's chipset impacting that. On my Canons (or my kids Woot Kodak) i've had no issues.
I've even bounced photos off my laptop through hotel crappy wireless through the interwebs and onto my NAS with success. (Bandwidth-limited, in that case, to aforementioned hotel crappy wireless.)
Seriously, I only come here for the articles.

Yeah, I don't get that either, because my 4GB Connect X2 transfers photos regardless of the format I'm shooting - jpg or raw.

Connect X2 (4GB) and Mobile X2 (8GB) are identical except for capacity. Pro X2 (8GB) adds WiFi-based geotagging.
