WiFi speeds can be impacted by a ton of different factors including some that may be out of your control. The age of the device you're connecting to the WiFi is a big one. Or it could be a brand new laptop/tablet/phone but the manufacturer cut costs by putting in a WiFi adapter that only caps out around 100 or 350 or 500 etc. 

 

If all your Boost WiFi pods are hard wired via cat5, not coax, and your device is capable of gigabit over WiFi you should be getting pretty good speeds.

yes 2 of my boost are connected via ethernet.

 

all my devices are supportive of 5ghz and gigabit connection.

 

I am also using gigabit switch to connect devices.

 

I have 2 phones which are wifi 6 ready as well.

What connection speed do you devices report for the wireless connection, this is not  the same as a speed test report.

 

How you determine the connection properties depends on your device.
