My wifi has a plan of 150 MB/s unlimited data for a month. When I download something from Steam, it gives me a max speed of 17 MB/s and when I download from microsoft Store, It gives me full 150 MB/s.
The wifi adapter I use is TP-link archer t2u Plus. It's a USB adapter with an antenna.

I use the 5 GHZ band.

Other system specs:
Core i5 3470
Zebronics H61
GT 1030
12 GB RAM
256 GB Adata SSD
WD Blue 1 TB 7200 RPM

all programs downloaded to SSD.

The router is pretty far away from the computer, but since it gets full speed in Microsoft Store, I don't think that's the issue.
 
I think you are confusing your terminology. I have never seen a wifi card that can go 150MByte. Most internet plans are in Mbit. Steam dose report download speeds in MBYTE but 17MB is 136Mb. Microsoft store might just be programmed to report in Mbit.
