Was just messing around and saw when running the Ookla speed test it actually shows my IP as iCloud Private Relay.

Yes and if you test with it on then test with it off you’ll notice a significant speed jump with it off
Hadn't noticed a big drop at the beginning. But lately I've been having some streaming quality issues at home when demands get heavier. Just checked speed with and without Private Relay. With: ~150mbps; Without: ~450mbps. Off it is, for now anyway.
