Why in Raspberry 3 Model B (with Wi-Fi chip BCM43438) Wi-Fi speed does not rise above 54 Mb / s

Why in Raspberry 3 Model B (with Wi-Fi chip BCM43438) Wi-Fi speed does not rise above 54 Mb/s (connects only in G-mode) and does not switch to N-mode with HT20 (speeds above 54 Mb/S) )?

pi@raspberrypi:~/ $ iwconfig wlan0 IEEE 802.11 ESSID: Mode:Managed Frequency:2.462 GHz Bit Rate=54 Mb/s Tx-Power=31 dBm
Code language: Bash (bash)

Enter the command:

sudo iw reg set US
Code language: Bash (bash)

Miracle, speed 72.2 Mb/s

pi@raspberrypi:~/$ iwconfig wlan0 IEEE 802.11 ESSID: Mode:Managed Frequency:2.462 GHz Bit Rate=72.2 Mb/s Tx-Power=31 dBm
Code language: Bash (bash)

For some reason, Russian users were cheated in the speed of BCM43438.
