Model: Deco M5
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.4.4

I have just upgraded my broadband to 150mbps with BT. I have four deco M5s expanding the Wi-fi throughout my home. I have done a test speed check via the deco app and this shows 146mbps which is fine however two other speed test apps 'Fast' and 'SpeedTest' are both only showing speeds of 70mbps which is the previous speed I had from BT. So question is what speed am I getting throughout my house? Are the deco's unable to pass this speed? At present I don't know if the Deco speed test or the Fast / SpeedTest app check is correct?

My speed has dropped on my Deco's lately as well. I used to be able to get full 500mps or higher when conected to the main unit and in the same room, not I can't get anything above 300-360mbps. No matter what I do, I can't get it back to where it was.

@TonyReilly  yea we decided to return the m5 deco system and go with something else. I just can't get the speeds above 80 in our bedroom no matter where I place the deco's.. I've tried moving them in different places and even resetting them several times but didn't make a difference.
