What type of Internet connection do you have to the internet? Cell modem (wireless), Cable, DSL or Fiber. The first two of these are shared connections with others around you, the others are dedicated connections between you and the ISP. In shared connections you may encounter time points your access will be slow, choppy or even fail. Try being the odd man out connecting when others are not likely using the connection. Also you may have other devices in your home that are sapping your allotted bandwidth or even neighbors if you have an open WiFi AP.

Try seeeing just what your ISP speed is, it doesn't matter who your carrier is: http://www.att.com/speedtest/

If you are using the airport, try switching to a hardwired ethernet connection to rule out an Airport card issue. If the problem persists, call your ISP and they will "painfully" walk you through everything to check. They can also reset your modem and test your lines. Most of the time when I have a slow down, it's not me but them but they make you do every check before they do anything.

All Macs begin to slow down with age — MacBook Pro, iMac. It doesn’t matter. I've listed some of the reasons below that may cause the Mac to slow down and found several ways to make your Mac faster. You can try.

1. Clean up your hard drive

2. Update your macOS.

3. Manage your Startup Items

4. End processes with Activity Monitor

5. Upgrade your hardware

6. Use the Mac cleanup software. Such as Mac Cleaner of iMyMac

7. Plow through your desktop items and Clean the desktop

8. Remove extensions to make your Mac run faster

9. Clean lots of outdated cache files

10. Finder uses too much memory and Adjust Finder preferences

11.Animations and rich graphics are extremely resource-hungry. So cut down on animations

12. Reset SMC to factory settings

13. Too much temporary files in memory. So restart your Mac regularly

14. Turn off the FileVault encryption

15.Over time, permission problems occur, causing your Mac OS X to lag, freeze and even crash. Then You can repair disk permissions.

16. Clean up Downloads and Trash folders

17. Clean up Preference Panes

I hope the above method can help you.
