Default Wireless 802.11ac slow SMB speeds?

I'm trying to diagnose why my transfer speeds seem to be slow on my HTC One running ARHD 40.3 with latest firmware

I'm downloading one or 2 files totaling 1.56 GB from my Synology NAS device that is plugged into a gigabit switch then ran to my gigabit router which has a gigabit switch on it. I'm connected to the router via 802.11ac (router is Linksys EA6200) on the 5 Ghz band I am reporting anywhere from 80 Mbit to 433 Mbit connection, yet I've only ever seen said files download at 3.5MB/sec, or about 25 Mbit.

Why is this?

If I wire up to my NAS directly and copy files over USB it's considerably faster, so it's not crappy read/write speeds of storage media, it's something with wireless, i can copy stuff to from about 20 times faster from my wired computer as well

Have you tried bringing your phone really close to the router while trying to download? You may be experiencing signal attenuation from walls and such.
