5 Mbps laptop Wifi while Firestick is streaming - 500+ Mbps Without

Pretty straight forward. Any of my devices receive 500+ Mbps over wifi when my Firestick is in sleep mode.

 

If Firestick is streaming Youtube TV, any of those same devices get 1-10 Mbps, and often speed test down in to the Kbps...

 

Just ran fast.com from Browser of Firestick and got 90 Mbps. Ran same test on 2019 Macbook Pro and got 7 Mbps. Put firestick to sleep, waited 30 seconds, then got 500+ Mbps on same Macbook.

 

Anything I can do, or time to go back to Xfinity?  Pretty unbelievable to be honest.
