Poor network performance in Windows Docker Desktop

Hi,

I am working on deploying a application built for Centos 7 onto Windows 10 using Docker. This system primarily uses a network connection for control and interaction. I am seeing significantly slower network speeds inside the docker container compared to the host, WSL2 and Hyper-V. With the host-mode not supported, I am not sure what options to enable/disable to improve this. Any suggestions? I have copied the image of the output of our speed tests below to show the 5-10x slow down experienced only in the docker container.

Thanks!
Will
