Very low wifi speed on PS5 but high on smart TV?!

Hi Guys,
Bought my son a LG C1 OLED TV for Gaming in his room and we have a new BT Smart Hub 2 router which gives about 130mb. The router is in the hallway downstairs.
On his C1 TV via wifi it shows he's getting over 100mb and Youtube does not buffer when he's watching 4k content but the PS5 wifi shows he's getting from 2 to 15 mb speed! Is this normal. I mean why there's such a discrepancy.

He's been having problem with playing online games with his PS5 so upgraded to higher tier BT package a new router and line installed today.

Edit. He found out that you can change the bands on PS5 settings. It was defaulted to 'automatic' then he changed it to 5 Ghz and now the speed is 70mbs!
