Internet speed on raspberry pi zero W is too slow. I've measured the speed in same way on my computer with same IP but the result is incredibly different.

Test on raspberry,

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ speedtest-cli 
Retrieving speedtest.net configuration...
Testing from Turk Telekom (88.228.xx.xx)...
Retrieving speedtest.net server list...
Selecting best server based on ping...

Test on my machine,

soner@ubuntu:~$ speedtest-cli 
Retrieving speedtest.net configuration...
Retrieving speedtest.net server list...

Here is my DNS,

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ nslookup yandex.ru
Server:     208.67.220.220        <----------- OpenDNS
Address:    208.67.220.220#53

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:   yandex.ru
Address: 77.88.55.88
Name:   yandex.ru
Address: 5.255.255.50
Name:   yandex.ru
Address: 77.88.55.50
Name:   yandex.ru
Address: 5.255.255.5

How can the issue be fixed?

    Are you using the Pi's Wi-Fi or an ethernet connection? If the former, could distance be a factor, or have you accounted for that?

  • For comparison you should address the same Turk Telekom server (or any other performant server).
