slow broadband / possible network settings on pc?

  dffd 13:26 25 Sep 2015

i've recently joined talktalk and i'm having trouble with downloading. upon doing many speedtests, i get a result of around 7-8mb. when i start a download, i start off at 1mb and it drops to 100kbps. if i tether using my phone as personal hotsport to laptop on ee either wired or wifi, i face the same issue. when i've tethered before with ee i always used to get around 4mb. because i'm facing the same issues when i'm connected with talktalk or ee, it makes me think there's an issue with my laptop. possibly the network settings in control panel? i think after i upgraded to windows 10 i was tethering fine without any issues. i've tried clearing my cookies etc but still face the same issues. has anyone experienced this same issue and found a solution please?
