Steam downloads and YouTube streaming very fast but direct downloads unbearably slow

This has only started happening today/end of yesterday. I can stream full 1080p60 with the 200 Mbps connection as you'd expect and get ~25 MB/s down on Steam since it's uncapped, however on direct downloads to installers and things from websites, or pictures, videos, music, ISOs for a reinstall of Windows I need to do are taking unbearably long as they all seem to be limited to 30 kB/s download.

Any ideas, I'm honestly completely lost here.

The problem appears to have remedied itself - might've just been a peak time for Steam's CDN or maybe the VM was routing the connection through a throttled server.
