So are we to guess all the details of your set up then ? :?

If you want help you have to provide information in detail about your setup etc...

what pi
what OS
what is your wired connection is 100/1000mbs
what you wifi connection type is
how you are testing the speed

Did you try another speedtest like nperf or bitcuco? https://bitcu.co/velocidad-internet/, maybe you will obtain another parameters.

Using the web browser Speedtest is unreliable, there is a command line version, search the forum as this has been discussed in detail.
Take what I advise as advice not the utopian holy grail, and it is gratis !!

This is the one one fruitoftheloom is suggesting, and the one I use https://github.com/sivel/speedtest-cli,

Don't used the one in the the system's package list its out of date.
