Which model Eero? And do you have some old/really old devices on the network? If you have an 802.11b device on the Eero's network it may/will force everything to run slowly (though I would expect slower than 87 actually).As an experiment I switched to the Fios wifi and did speed tests. I'm getting between 300 and 450 depending on the room. It seems dumb to use the Eeros instead of that given the speed difference. Isn't Eero supposed to be better than the Fios extenders?
It's the 6+. As far as I know there aren't any really old devices on the network. It's mostly brand new or newer TVs, phones that are a couple of years old, Echos, Ring, Nest and an iPad.Which model Eero? And do you have some old/really old devices on the network?

I'm assuming there are almost no devices on the Fios network as well.
"Better" depends on quite a few things. As far as I know, Eero uses wireless backhaul (i.e. the link between the extenders and the main unit/gateway can be in the same spectrum as the client network), I have no idea if that is the case for the Fios extenders.
If you are getting 500 off the Fios+extender network and still <100 from the Eero network, then something weird is happening. Unless your Fios extender is actually on MOCA like @derekson mentioned - is it plugged into the coax cable?It's the 6+. As far as I know there aren't any really old devices on the network.

The only reason I have a Fios extender at all is because I have one TV that was too far from the Fios router and the cable box is wireless, so I added a Fios extender and the problem was solved. Until I did my little experiment to compare the speeds nothing else was connected to Fios. But I'm consistently getting speeds over 500 now.
You have Fios right? Assuming so, here's a reddit thread describing it a bit more.So I have a hardwired connection for my primary PC, but I hadn't been using it. I just did a speed test and on my wifi I get 150 down / 100 up. Disabled it, enabled the NIC and I get 700 down / 1 up . Yes 1, one 1.0, uno.
Thoughts on why the hardwired is so slow?
self edit before posting as I googled it: Read that IPv6 TCP Checksum Offload should be disabled. So I did that, and now I'm getting the expected up speeds. Maybe this will help someone else, so I'll leave it here.
Wow. This explains the issue I was having with gmail and other google related sites a few months back on this machine. I think I even posted about it. It was the only machine in the house with issues. I installed windows 10 pro (up from 7)and it went away...but that's because I also switched to using wireless after the install. Crazy that it was a combo of the ISP and the NIC. I never would have got there.
Holy shit! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I have been struggling with this problem for over a year. Couldn’t Zoom; couldn’t Google, load Amazon images, or watch YouTube videos on Firefox; couldn’t send any attachments with gmail; etc, etc. Chrome worked only marginally better. I tried everything I could think of, searched endlessly, and got nowhere. People experiencing similar problems were getting the runaround on the Verizon forums. I ended up having to do most network activity on my phone, which I hate.
