So what is throwing me off is that my PC custom built is not getting the maximum internet speed I have.
My PC is connected to my router via Ethernet cable and i'm getting less download speeds than my cousins PC when connected with the same cable. Even my phone on the 5.0ghz network is getting better Mbps than my PC.

My PC Hardware
Mobo----->H110M Pro-VDPLUS Bios: 7A15v17
Windows 10 64-bit
CPU--------> Intel Skylake
GPU-------->Nvidia GTX 10-series
RAM-------->8gb DDR4

On steam I get a maximum of 11.9MB/s compared to my cousins 17MB/s which is a huge difference to me but not to sure on what I should do.

Do us all a favor and don't use Google for your speed test. Openspeedtest.com or speedtest.net

Are your drivers up to date? There's usually a network driver to download. No guarantee it'll fix this but worth a shot.
I literally get the same results (I tested this a couple of times on those sites before). I just did the fastest thing I saw unless I'm missing something.
