Speed test is not accurate. Every site will have control over user dl and ul speed and throttle your connection to it. Having more bandwidth not necessarily you will be faster. Speed and bandwidth are different thing.
iperf3 to the rescue if you know how to use

Dude iperf3 runs on your own network. It does not even need internet access.

Do not care to do speed test, it will not help.

Speed test is only to diagnose. Obviously running it 100 times if there is a problem won't change the results. You have to find the cause of the problem

Henry Ng is an idiot troll giving wrong advice to formers. Supprised moderators still haven't banned him

I have him on Ignore List but still irritating as hell

Agree with you. However, the issue can be very complex that even engineer from ISP also can not resolve.

By site, do you mean my own home? Why would I throttle or limit my own bandwidth?

Even engineers and ISP can't solve? So I should just live with what the 350mbps download and upload and continue to pay for 1gbps?

You may like to try on AC8260/5 or AC7260/5, they may help. According to intel spec AC3165 is only spec at 433Mbps whereas the AC8260/5 and AC7260/5 both are spec at 867Mbps.

If you are using AC3160/5 with a speed test of 350Mbps, I think it is good enough to the max. Changing to AC8260 will boost to 600+/-Mbps, and should be attainable.
Yup, I've changed to AC8260. Seems like no difference. Not sure if my laptop itself (Dell Inspiron 7559) has a limit :/

Iíve peaked with 500mbps up/down with AC1200G+ and iPhone 8+ 2-3m line of sight but realistically 200-300mbps in most setups should be the norm for this generation of tech...

I have a similar hardware as you, the only different is only the router. I am using the Linksys EA7500. Which I find it is better than my previous DLink 868-L, in terms of wifi speed performance on 5 GHz.

I monitor the speed and compatibility of the network connection by changing the router's "Channel" to a higher frequency, and also change the "Channel width" to 80MHz. Perhaps, you may like to borrow a EA7500 for a try, if you can.

Disabling router wifi and connect to an "Access Point", such as Unifi AP AC Lite, Unifi AP AC Pro or TP-Link EAP225V3, is another route to take. They are reliable and fast, the speed is more consistent and less fluctuation. But you pay more for your electricity bill, and also more devices to "mess" around.

Again, they are all subject to technology limitation and also WiFi is susceptible to interference. The best is still the cable connection, if you have one and run it.

Cable connection recommended as it is best unless using mobile phone.
