What causes Windows 8 Internet to Slow to A Crawl?

Specs: Windows 8, Core i7
Over the Last 2 weeks my computer has simply CRAWLED on the Internet. Idk what the problem is. I have SpyBot, Malwarebytes and AVG Internet Security 2013 all running, do scans every other day, but it just is dead slow. My computer is running just fine, it is super fast. But the Internet itself is super slow. I have a 15Mb connection at home, and my Roommates MacBook Pro is lightning fast on our connection, so it is not an ISP problem with our Internet. Additionally, I just came to my best friends house today, and she has a 25Mb connection and her MacBook FLIES on the Internet. I can't even get the Speedtest.net page to LOAD. What could be the problem. ***SIDE NOTE: This is NOT a Mac Versus PC debate issue. The systems tested with here are COINCIDENTAL. My machine is exceptionally fast and in normal conditions is just as capable as any MacBook. Please provide some guidance here. I can't run my business without the Internet.

When my internet speed drops for no apparent reason outside busy periods, I unplug the router from the power supply then plug it back in (in other words, a full reset).
I just wait for it to re-sync and all it's lights to stop flashing. Always does the trick.

I have rebooted the routers at both places. It has not helped.
