    Internet Service Providers in the UK seem to limit internet usage speeds in peak hours. Give them a call and complain

    Also reset the router and see what happens

    Some providers advertise saying for example: "Up to 20mbps". This doesn't mean that you will get the 20mbps, you may see it sometimes but most of the time it will be below that. Also, when testing your internet connection make sure you've closed any unnecessary programs which may consume some of the speed. And do it when you're connected to the modem with Ethernet cable.
