i'm sitting 2 meters from my wifi and my 5g comes back with 10mbs and my 2.4g 47mbs ( using speedtest.net )
i'm thinking it must be to do with the speed test site?

If you have more devices on the 5ghz network, e.g. phones/tablets/tv thingees then yes there will be more noise on it, more re-transmits and packet loss. 

what do you need more than 10mbit for anyway? Use a cable if you want to download at a good speed.

And more congestion if some of the other 5GHz devices sharing your network are quite busy, eg concurrently streaming video or downloading while running the speedtest. Try setting RTS to something like 1024 on your router, might reduce the re-transmits a bit.
