Low bandwidth with high speed internet


I have a dedicated laptop to host Zoom meetings from that has a wired connection to gigabit speed internet.  When I check the internet speed, it is consistent with what one would expect from gigabit speed internet (~900mbps up/down).


Unfortunately, Zoom does not seem to care.  The bandwidth I am getting in the statistics page is ranges from 200-1500kbps (send) and a pretty solid 3000mbps (receive).  Zoom recommends a 3.8/3.0Mbps (up/down) for full HD video.  


Anyone know why my bandwidth would be throttled on Zoom while able to utilize gigabit speed internet on the same device?



The same exact thing is happening to me. I have tested my internet speed and it's clocking in at 400+mbps. Every Zoom meeting is laggy showing low bandwidth and "your internet is unstable" messages when it is not. Zoom please help!
