Wi-Fi isn't good enough for testing speeds, there are too many things that can influence the signal.

Can you Login to the Hub Settings and navigate to the Connected Devices page - what is the reported 'connection speed’ for the ethernet cable connected device you used for the speed test ?

You don't need internet to access the Hub data.
