Slow speeds for a few days

Tested my speeds over the last few days and always coming in as between 80 and 90 meg. I should be getting 500. I do realise that lots more people are using their home broadband with the current covid 19 stuff but a drop of over 400 meg isnt really fair. 

No phone lines to call, virginmedias test always say there is nothing wrong and Ive rebooted numerous times.

Any ideas?

Wired and with only a 1m cable. In the past, virtually every test would show 500 and if it didnt, a reboot would sort it out. Nothing has changed in regards to my setup
