Internet Speeds: WiFi vs Ethernet

I decided to connect the server directly to the router using an ethernet cable, and the connection is reported at running at 1GBit/s. I used speedtest-cli to test the speed on the server on WiFi and on Ethernet:

I have a 100 megabit connection, and this can be fully utilised through the Ethernet cable. The differences in upload and latency are probably down to random jitter as this varied a fair bit throughout my testing.
