    Could be one of the reasons, ask your ISP for MRTG/PRTG to ascertain

    I didnt think it was a bandwith problem because during peak hours the other devices, and even my old laptop are able to surf the web at fast speeds.

    It is not a problem from the internet provider. I was using the university's secure wifi and I still ran into slow download speeds and wifi not staying connected for long periods of time. I think it could be a problem that this 2-in-1 laptop is fairly new and still has bugs that needs to be worked out. Is there anything else I should try or should I return this 2-in-1 and get a conventional laptop?

    Could also happen if WiFi signal is bad, if many are using WiFi at some times, especially if their devices are close enough you'd get radio interference from them and with lowering of signal quality, bandwidth will drop too.

    I am afraid you may have to contact IT department and verify following:

    1. Whether unlimited bandwidth is allowed - IMHO the answer should would be NO
    2. Whether unrestricted access (in terms of how long you could remain connected) is allowed - IMHO the answer should would be NO
