Try disabling AVG Linkscanner and see if that makes any difference.

(Assuming you have it, of course.)

Try command prompt and type in ipconfig /flushdns then press enter,it should tell you DNS cache has been flushed if so reboot and see if it is any quicker.
If using Internet explorer try downloading IE7Pro add-on.Make sure Ad-blocker is ticked and mini Download Manager is unticked.

And maybe update your Host file.

Maybe check that you are getting the proper download speed from your ISP.
