I really don't know what is going on with my AppStore. I have updated it to the latest version on my iPhone 5s and I have downloaded updates for some apps using it. My connection speed is 25MBPS but I only get around 20KBPS. This never happened to me ever before. How to fix this problem?

You cannot blame your device if it only gets a low download speed because normally it only relies on the available speed on the network you are connecting to. Since you are using an iPhone, you are connecting to the internet using Wi-Fi. The speed of your connection will depend on several factors not just the actual supported speed of your Smartphone.

Your internet speed will depend on the distance of the Wi-Fi hotspot and your current location. The farther your location is, the weaker the signal will be, and the slower the connection. Normally, when you have a weak signal, the connection is very unstable. It can disappear just anytime and then appears again. When you are downloading on a weak signal, the download is normally slow because of the unstable signal.

The speed is also affected by the number of users connected to the network. If there are many Wi-Fi users in the area, you cannot expect a fast connection because the overall bandwidth of the network is shared and divided between all the users. And if there is a user downloading big files, it will drag the speed further down.
