I recently signed up to an 8 Mb connection through Exetel, who I've been with for almost a year now and have had no troubles with until now. My speed (previously 1.5 Mb) has changed, according to my modem page, but I'm getting extremely slow browsing speeds, as seen in my speed test results below.

Spoiler: show

Surprisingly I can still download torrents at 150 - 200 kB/s, which is nowhere near what it should be but a hell of a lot better than my browsing speed. Does anyone have any ideas as to why my browsing speed would be so much slower than my download speed? Or even why my connection is so much slower than what it should be?

Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
