Windows 7: Anyone facing bandwidth issues when gaming?

Anyone facing bandwidth issues when gaming?

I just downgraded to windows 7 from 10 because it wasnt too compatible with gaming. Turns out there was nothing wrong with the OS but it was my ISP throttling my speed. (i didnt know the difference between fps and ping, dont judge me). Anyway i opted to get purevpn since there was an 82% off on it. It works for me but im open to alternative solutions so feel free to add to it
