Ask for a line test from your ISP?

Otherwise, play around with the router settings or see if you have to download any updates for your router.

I did that and our internet speed went up by 1.00 Mbps for upload and download.

Are your uploads being throttled (eg have you been torrenting/seeding alot), or is there something else shaping your uploads like your router's QoS algorithms? Try with a different device as well to see what it gets.

Wow I just moved to my studio at university for my PhD degree I'm starting and this is my internet speed. Bruh it's like 50 times faster than my house I used to live with my family.

Not counting the free wifi on campus, I have seen some ridiculously fast internet speeds at universities here and abroad... I can't remember the name of the service but there used to be a single login which got you onto wifi at campuses around the world (or at least there was back in the late 2000's).

Yeah running on the Wi-Fi at uni I had around 160 download and upload. Didn't expect it would be that much faster on the ethernet cable
