Your ISP and speedtest.net reports in megabits/sec.
Steam reports in megaBytes/sec.
8:1 ratio

6* 8 = 48 == close enough to 50.
Nothing is wrong, nothing needs to be fixed.
Just different reporting units.

Umm maybe change your download server location to one nearest you? also clear the download cache.
both can be done from Settings>Downloads
