Internet Speeds

I just had internet set up today so I may be jumping the gun on this but thought that I would ask anyways.  We signed up for the plan that has up to 50 mbps download speed.  While I understand that I will not hit 50 all the time I felt that my speed was rather low.  I am only getting about 21 mbps download speed, that is not even half of advertised.  Just wondering if there is something on your end or mine that may fix this issue.

Here is the test that I ran today:
