Airstream Connect

I'm new to this but had the Connect package installed on my new AS. Seemed to be running slow again so ran another test today using this package vs hotspot off my iPhone here outside of Jacksonville FL.

1. Airsteam Connect - 13.64 Mpbs download, 1.46 upload
2. iPhone Hotspot - 37.66 download, 4.3 upload

Suspecting I should have just got a cell booster for my roof, and hotspot using one of our phones.

Did you ask Airstream to turn off the Campground Wifi portion of the Connect system? That will get it go faster. Best improvement for speed is to add a separate WiFi router to the connect, something like the TP Link Wi-Fi 6 router that is discussed in other Airstream Connect threads. That will get you speeds generally faster than what you see on your phone since you have dual MiMo antennas on the roof with the Airstream Connect.

Agreed that is what I did. Your speeds are much faster than mine were from the factory system install. However when I added my extra router I was getting much improved speeds. I do suspect where I live though I don't get the greatest reception so that will come into play.
