Anyone else getting REALLY SLOW speeds on steam?

Up until the last week or so iv never once had a problem with steam downloads. Always maxed out at 6-7mb/s (im on 80/20 FTTP) but now (as i speak) i cannot download more than 400-600kb/s. Doesnt matter what time of day it just wont budge. I did a speedtest and it was fine and downloads from other places are fine just steam. I know it may be busy but iv tried several times and its always the same. Iv made sure the correct ports are forwarded on my router etc. Am i being throttled? Its a real pain in the ass when im supposed to be on SUPERFAST fibre.
Any help guys? Undecided

Just out of interest, are you using the closest content server to download from? It should show somewhere in your download settings.

After last night i put a ticket in and just got a reply, my profile was set wrong. It was set on 40mb/s so they've just upped it back to 78mb/s. Just started a download and back to normal. Thanks guys
