Slow WiFi Issues

I purchased 1Gb Fios connection tp my house but WiFi speeds are very slow. I have done the following test trying to debug:

1) Ran Fios iPhone Speed Test (Verizon to my Router) = 883Mb Down / 908 Mb Up

2) Wired Hard connection (Cat5 to laptop) = 572Mb Down / 902Mb Up

3) Use WiFi = 30Mb Down / 72Mb Up

I have already rebooted my router mutiple times. I know WiFi is slower than Ethernet connection but these speeds basically make it unusable.

Is my Router defective? What can be done to improve my WiFi speeds?

What router are you using? What wireless devices are you testing with? Are you connected to 2.4 or 5 GHz?

Wireless speeds are not guaranteed and will vary from location to location. There are many factors involved like construction materials and RF interference just to name a few. 

As far as 30 mbps being unusable that is not true. You can stream 4K video at 25 mbps.
