Sorry to hear you're having problems. I don't think it's a problem with the site which has been working fine for me over the period you mention.
Can I suggest you try the following: Completely power down your router followed by all your devices and computers which access the internet (ie turn them all off - not send them to sleep).
Wait 5 mins then turn them all back on - I would do the router first followed by desktop computer followed by portable devices.
Does that make a difference?
If things are still go-slow check what other members of the household are up to on the internet - if several of you are doing 'heavy duty' tasks (e.g. downloading films / gaming) at the same time that will slow you down.
Finally ask your neighbours - are they having problems? If so - might be a problem at the exchange / cabinet & your ISP or line provider might be able to help.
Let us know how you get on. Good luck - these days it's a bit isolating when t'internet is playing up
