Wifi speed check in the X1 Android app.

When I check my wifi speed in the xfinity X1 app it returns relatively slow speed (25 - 50 MBs) for my 500mbs package. However, if I check my speed using the Ookla speedtest app it is much higher - this am it was over 200 on my tablet and over 500 on my phone. Why the discrepancy?

the tests are to specific server(s) and results do vary. if your device is connected to 2.4ghz wifi it will have much slower maximum speed than does a device connected to 5g. best speeds are usually to an ethernet connected desk/laptop.
