I recently had Full Fibre 900 installed in my house, which is a 1930s 3-bed semi-detached. The walls are made of brick, but are not massively thick, and we have wooden floors throughout. Our street is run-of-the-mill residential, and our immediate neighbours are with Virgin.
Since installation, we've had pretty much consistently fast ethernet download and upload speeds (a test just now returned 801mbps dl/97 ul, with a ping of 9). This would, I assume, indicate that there is no problem with the line. However, the WiFi speeds we are receiving are truly shocking - at 3ft away from the router in the same room, I get 40mbps. In some parts of the house (which isn't massive), I get speeds in the single digits. What's weirder is that, upon resetting the router, or tweaking some of the settings, the WiFi speeds suddenly become lightening fast (600-700 mbps dl in the same room as the router, 300-400 dl downstairs) for 5-10 minutes, before plummeting again. I have tried using a different router (ASUS RT-AX56U), but found that this only made a slight difference in speeds.
I spoke to someone at BT on the phone, who was as puzzled as I was. She reset the router remotely, and asked that I report back in a week if things haven't changed. I don't think that's good enough, given that I'm now over a week into my contract and have not received anything close to normal WiFi speeds, let alone speeds I'd expect from the Full Fibre 900 package.

If a third party router made little difference, it is clearly not a BT problem but a problem with your home environment. No ISP guarantees wifi speed as there are too many variables. Have you tried changing channels?
I guess there could be some serious interference being generated from somewhere.
Is this with just one device or multiple devices?
Multiple devices - two smartphones (both Android), a PS5, smart TV, and a modern laptop. The SH is in the same room as a NAS, which is connected to the SH via ethernet.
