Speed Tests Are Slow, pfSense?
I'm noticing my speed tests are slower, not consistent, and vary. I can get my full bandwidth sometimes, but usually its half and the rate isn't constant. Can the pfSense be the reason why?

Generally, no. But with the information provided not much can be said.
late reply bc of holiday and needed to better look into the pfsense.
the issues appears not to be the pfsense but with the cable provider. For the pfSense, I looked at all the packages and configs I had. Over a year it was a little bit of a mess. I had about 7 packages. I still had speed issues. I set to factory defaults. The problem stayed. So what I did was reach out to my town on social media groups. After a couple dozen people replied I knew it was the cable provider. All the town who had high speed internet said they were getting half the speed. The pfSense wasn't the cause of the slowness.
Solved: More Information About My Fix:
-I wasn't right with my last post. I've solved the issue after a month of trial..(and error)... I should get 400mbps. My town is slow with advertised speeds. However, I realized that my modem was a problem...and also pfSense 3100-SG (bc of my configuration.) I had an ISP modem. I bought my own modem. Solved it. Done. I also Over-Did pfBlock-NG. Way too much blocking. The -devel- suggested blocking along with the lists I like made the connection messed up. I narrowed it down to a great listed from git and dshield. I am going perfect for 2 weeks.
