I have used the same vpn for 8 years, never had any particular problems with speed, but lately the speed is not only bad, it is catastrophically bad with many servers.

I have 750mb download, and when I use VPN server in my own country I get 2-5mb download. Have contacted the provider and they think the fault lies with me, but I tested with another VPN and get 460-560mb downloaded when I use server in my own country and the same speed in most countries in Europe. Despite this, the supplier still claims that the fault lies with me? I use 3-4 machines here and the speed is just as bad on all of them, and just as good when another VPN is used. Has anyone experienced this?

I am using PIA and f-secure safe. Using both win 8.1 and win10 and PIA's own 64bit application and WireGuard. Did not try to install vpn in the router. This is the same I use with the other VPN too.
