Yes I suppose I should pick the same Speedtest target each time, but that’s not really what I was on about.

Just had the issue right now, Forumite lagging, replying to the asus mobo post took ages to go through. Shut down Chrome, fire up the VPN and everything working as you’d expect.

I’m wondering if it’s DNS related, not at my end so much as in Three and TalkTalk land. But there is no doubt that the VPN speeds things up, which is pure bandwidth terms is contradictory as a VPN slows that down as encryption has an overhead (WireGuard is less than OpenVPN).
