Umm have you tried deleting your cookies and your browsing history ? This can speed up the browser and has done so in my experience.

There are plenty of possible causes to choose from.  I'm sure everyone has their favourites to check when the line gets slow.  I've had several issues with cabling outside my premises.  This is my order:


Check traffic with firewall or monitoring software, investigate non-browser activities

Check a variety of websites in case it's a remote site or regional issue

Check speed with online test

Cycle power to the modem/router

Malware (others may want to put this higher up the list)

Contact ISP if it looks like their problem
