Which internet speed checker, and at what time of the day.

www.speedtester.bt.com may provide some more useful data, ie a figure called the IP Profile.

Assuming speeds are good at offpeak times, and just bad when everyone is online, then the issue may be resolved by changing provider. Different providers offer different levels of service

Are you connected wirelessly or wired with your computer? If wireless then you may just be limited by that.

Which bit ? The results of the test, or the reported IP profile. All the numbers mean something so copy/paste and we can figure it out
