I wonder what I encounter below is unusual or what?

Was using M1 supplied RT-AC1200G+ & could get Network speed at 866Mbps from my phone S7 5Ghz band.

Bought RT-AC88U expecting better speed but was dismal to find only 433Mbps with the same phone S7 5Ghz band.

Both routers setting are at default & with firmware latest. Cable from WAN is cat7. Measuring distance & time all same.

My M1 is FIBRE 1Gbps plan.

What could be the problems? Another dud AC88U?

Hope some seniors here can enlighten. Thanks
That’s just link rate, it’s more practical to test actual throughput. Do a Speedtest to see which gives you better speed. A bit pointless to compare link rate.
