Connection to Eero 6 extenders are slower than main Eero router

I recently got the Eero6 (Router + 2 extenders)
Router is connected to an AT&T modem/router through LAN cable.  Placed in Living Room
Extender #1 is placed in my basement - less than 30 feet from Router + Placed around 3 feet from the ground
Extender #2 is placed in my bedroom - little more than 30 feet from Router + Placed on the ground


I have tested this both my Mac laptop & my Pixel phone. 
If I connect to the router on either of my devices and run speed test, I get more than 300 Mbps download , 300 Mbps upload as I have got AT&T 300 Mbps fiber internet. 

If I connect to either of the extenders on either of my devices and run speed test, I get around ~150 Mbps download ,  ~150 Mbps upload. 

Is this normal that connecting to extenders won't give me higher than similar to router ?

the issue is same no matter which extender I connect. 
I already upgraded all devices to eeroOS 6.3.1

Please advise
