Verizon routers are known for crappy wifi. They use internal antennas which are not as good as external antennas. No service be it fios or infinity or Comcast or Charter GURANTEE wifi. Only advertised speeds on a direct connection.

you could simply have purchased your own better router from Netgear or linksys or TP Link Archer and pay verizon nothing for rental. However if your using fios for tv and phone you will have to look up how to use just your own purchased router at a forum as http://www.dslreports.com/fios 

15 feet wow. But with walls and other electrical devices there maybe interference. You could try changing the band the router uses just Incase there is congestion.
