How is your desktop connected?

This all depends on how the computer is connected to the internet and the priority settings that you have set. If the phone has a higher priority than the desktop, it will have more bandwidth and speed.

connected via ethernet cable, it was running fine last week at 60mb then noticed a massive drop back to 10mb when downloading games from steam at 1.2mb/s

Check you cabling from your PC all the way to the router. You might have a damaged cable that is causing your NIC to fall back to 10Mbps.

Try copying a file to or from you PC to another device on your LAN. Is it still 10Mbps? If so, then you have a cable or NIC problem.

Have you actually tried replacing the cable and using a different port on the router?
