Fios Gigabit Service speedtest without VZ router

I have FIOS gigabit service, currently attached the ethernet handoff from ONT device straight into my Ubiquiti Unifi Security Gateway. My speedtests from https://www.verizon.com/speedtest/ fails obviously because Verizon's speed test is done to their router. However when i do speedtest via ookla or netflix (fast.com) i only get download speed of around 80Mbps. My setup is from ONT handoff to Unifi router to 16 port PoE switch to my PC hardwired.

If you have a PC connected to your router and go to speedtest.verizon.net can you run a test from there?

You cannot run a test to Verizon’s Test server without the Fios router in the mix.

either as single router or in Bridge or access point mode.

Yep I noticed that I can't run speedtest without VZ router. I am using netflix's speedtest site fast.com and I see the same results may be bit better than ookla.

When doing your testing on Speedtest.net, change the server that it is communicating with.  I have one that used to never test above 80mbps.
