A very curious thing

I've just noticed a very curious thing. If I switch from 3G to wifi on on my iPhone, the quality of the photo's for the people I'm following on Twitter using the Twitterific app improve remarkably.

Turn wifi off, and they go all grainy and coarse. Turn it on and they go back to clear as a bell high re photos. It's particularly noticeable with the following people that I follow on Twitter: @ruskin147 (Rory Cellan-Jones) photo - currently his dog sporting a red nose, and @AlsiB (from Astraware)

Now I thought that wifi was just "faster" than 3G. I didn't think that it downloaded any more data.

Can anyone put me right here, or explain this? It's not a big deal, but I just don't understand.
