Finally figured out why I cant get higher than 250mb internet connection, despite having a 600mb plan. It was my router all along. Despite having five gigabit ports, it doesn't have the CPU power to support NAT at that speed.

Built a new router using a discarded PC from work, and Opnsense. Download speed is now over 700mb! A great improvement!

@nsoddity unfortunately NAT eats a lot of performance, should get better with IPv6
