Very Slow fibre broadband

Our fibre has never been what id call fast, maximum speed around 15mbs, however the speed has recently dropped down to around 8mbs download and 0.2mbs upload.

Ive tried the EE support the advisor tried a few things but admitted he wasnt too clued up on why im having this problem. They have replaced the router and no difference, if anything is got worse. 

Anyone else experienced speeds this slow for fibre?

My contract is nearing its end and im seriously considering moving to a rival if this cant be sorted.

Anyone got any advice as to what we can try next to solve this problem?
