Netgear app doesn’t match other WiFi speed test

So I upgraded my internet speed to 1gig. When I run my WiFi speed test on my Netgear app it doesn’t show more then 400 + mbps but when I run another WiFi speed test they are 900+. Why? I’ve done everything to try and fix restart, unplug and deleted app and add app again still doesn’t show full speeds. Also when I had 500 mbps internet speed before I upgraded it would show 500+ on speed results on my netgear app show I’m lost why it not showing it now.

the problem with the netgear app is you can't choose which server the speedtest runs off. It could be running off one that doesn't max out the connection. It used to be more prevalent. 

As long as your other apps are showing full speed, I wouldn't worry about it.

Which WiFi speed test on the Netgear app?

 

One test uses WiFi to connect to the router but then tells it to test the Internet speed. That one checks the wired speed between the router and the modem.
