fast internet, but slow image loading...

I have fast internet that can stream 4K, but I often find myself browsing the internet and while visitng the websites I will see grey(or empty) squares/rectangles in place of images, then some will load and others won't. This happens on the YouTube app, images in MacRumors articles, and iTunes store. Sometimes refreshing will fix it.

Which part of the network setup causes this? Is it something that has to do with the "quality" of the internet? because the speed should be more than fine for that. Is it RAM on device? Is it the router dropping "packets" ? Anyone else faces similar effects?
