Network slow with dongle/internet key

Hello, I'm connected using a USB dongle or internet key using 3g signal. Sometimes it works almost fine, but others (especially in the evening) it becomes very slow, with high latency. It worked fine before and it works fine on my laptop so I'm basically sure it's my PC's issue. I tried using a different dongle, different connection software, different DNS, different USB port, reinstalling windows 8.1, switching back to 7, installing different drivers, changing some network and bios settings but nothing worked. I was thinking of buying a separate network interface controller to see if it solves the issue but I'm not sure since the dongle uses a usb port.

Thank you kindly for your help, Valentino

Most likely slow because the £G network is busier in the evening when everyone wants to use it.

Yes, it definitely is but my speed drops to a couple of kB/s which is not normal while on the laptop it downloads at a few hundreds kB/s. Someone suggested to me that I could probably resolve it by installing a usb card and using that, could it work?
