      Onto what Smithy said, find out your exchange code at SamKnows - Telephone Exchange Search, and paste it in here.

      Actually, ignore my above post as I just noticed your location. The problem could be down to a known recent backhaul issue, which is affecting quite a few areas - notably the North West in your case. See the thread below for more details:

      However, as Smithy said, try another speed test via ethernet cable first off.
