I have a Gigabit fiber internet at home with a router/modem combo from the provider. It works very well but in the farther rooms the signal drops.
I've just bought a Nest Wifi router + 1 point.
The Nest Wifi is WAN-wired to the Provider-Router combo to get the internet feed. They both located at the same place next to each other.
The provider-wifi is enabled with a different network name.
Standing next to the Nest-Wifi and Provider-router :

What's going on? Is this a known issue?
Nest Wifi has built in QoS (quality of service) which tries to prioritise important traffic, which raw speedtests aren't.
You could try to disable preferred activities, no need to have any of them enabled when you have such speeds from your ISP:
It's also best practice to disable the Wi-Fi and the routing functionality of your ISP provided equipment to avoid double NAT. This is also referred to as "bridge mode".
Nest Wifi itself is also a router with functionality like NAT, firewall and DHCP. Having two routers in a home setup is not best practice.
Thanks for your replies.
I switched off the ISP router WIFI.
I figured that if I turn off and back on the WIfi on the iPhone, the speed shows high around 500MB.
To be clearer: if I move from inner rooms back the living room where the Nest router is located. The speed is below 100MB. If I then turn off and back on the WIFI on the iPhone and check again the speed, it shows around 500MB.
Thanks for clarifying. To isolate the issue, could you try changing the DNS on your Google Home app? Here's how:
Let us know how it goes.
