whats the make and model of the Router and switches , if you have any ?

how are the 20 PCs connected now - by wireless or cable

how did you get from 8Mbps to 16Mbps ?

To get gigabyte connectivity
you would need a router with a gigabyte LAN connection , as well as the swtich and also all the PCs would need to have a gigabyte adapter
BUT
that will only be the internet speed between PC
NOT the internet download speed - that will be determined by the speed your ISP (broadband) provider is giving you / you are paying for

If you plan to continue to use wireless - you will not get gigabyte wireless connectivity

router name which provided by ISP: Fast ptcl router
16 pcs are connected via wireless and rest via cable.
ISP(ptcl) told us its 8Mbps....

with 8Mbps speed, when we put Gigabyte router and connected 16+ pcs.... will the internet speed to each pc improve ?

The internet speed will vary between 8 and less than half a Mps depending on how many are actually using the internet at any moment. It is unlikely that a faster router is going to affect this by very much.
