Wifi is so slow and i havnt changed anything

Hi Virgin.

I always do Wifi speeds every week on my network. Ive noticed for the last week my WiFi speeds no longer gets past 50Mbps. I should be hitting over 500.

My router location hasnt changed etc nothing new has connected. The only thing i have changed is opting out of hotspot. 

Can anyone please explain to me why my internet is crawling when a week ago i was getting 500Mbps?

Thank you.

Make sure you are connected to the 5Ghz band, sounds like you are on the 2.4Ghz band.

Have you tried a full factory reset? Hold in the pinhole at the rear of the router for at least 50 seconds and then release (the lights will flash while holding in the pinhole reset button after about 10-15 seconds) then allow 5 minutes for the router to reboot and re-sync the connection.
Please ensure that your WiFi network password is still readable on the Hub sticker before you do this or that you at least have a copy of your original network password.
