Are the other computers actively downloading while you speedtest?

If so, that's why your speed is down.

Try running speedtest when your computer is the only one on. You may find that the other computer is using the connection without your noticing it. It has happened, a lot of infected computers send copious amounts of data to and from behind the scenes when there are no browser windows open.
