The first thing that I would do is check If XMP profile has been enabled but even so the speed should not be that low ... hmmm

There is two ways that you can go about this. 

 

The first way is enabling XMP. This is a setting in the bios of the motherboard . Look for the RAM settings and make sure the button says ‘enabled’ This will allow your RAM to run at its full potential (The rated speed that it was advertised at).

 

The second way is overclocking the RAM although I would not recommend doing this at its not a super common practise.

Not sure if speccy shows advertised speed or actual speed, but DDR stands for double data rate. As such some software will show the actual clock speed of the ram, half of what you would expect to see and is normal.
