When an item is created or modified - trigger frequency

Having a flow that triggers with an item in a SharePoint list created or modified. i am using the flow in multiple tenants, and it is working fine, but the delay between the action and the trigger is different.


In one tenant, it takes up to 3 minutes, while in the other, it takes more than 5 minutes. when use "Peek code" on the trigger task, i can see the recurrence is set to 3 and 5.

The account used for both tenants have O365 E3 license assigned.


I know the recurrence can not be changed, but my questions are:

1- Why i have different values (3, 5) in different tenants?

2- My understanding is that MS removed the maximum frequency when they moved to the new licensing model, will having a per user/per flow license assigned enhance the trigger frequency, or am i stuck with e 5 minute delay?
