Questions about wifi router

I have a plan with spectrum that provides 400 mbps of upload speed with around 20-40 mpbs of download speed, i recently switched to the NETGEAR AC1600(R6330) as opposed to the standard spectrum router. I am now getting speeds of 70 mbps upload speed to 2.5-5 mbps download speed and it is “very fast” when i run speed tests. If anyone knows if im not getting the plan im paying or if the change in numbers mean the same thing please let me know. And/or any advice on what to do would be extremely helpful.

Re: Questions about wifi router

What modem/gateway do you have from spectrum?

What speeds do you get connected directly to the modem?

What device are you speed testing on? 

Are you testing over 2.4ghz or 5ghz? 2.4ghz is s low network. but broadcasts further and through more materials. 

Current setup: CM2000-> RBKE963B-> Trendnet TEG-S380-> GS716T-> pi-hole
also in AP setup: RAXE500->EAX80
1.4gig download/50mbps upload from Xfinity
