I think they have introduced rate limiting.

As an experiment, I put this URL in my browser:
https://www.alphavantage.co/query?function=CURRENCY_EXCHANGE_RATE&from_currency=USD&to_currency=GBP&apikey=[my
key]

After about 6 browser refreshes with a second or two between, I got:

"Thank you for using the CURRENCY_EXCHANGE_RATE API! Please kindly contact
supp...@alphavantage.co if you would like to have a higher API
call volume"

So I have emailed support to see what the options are.
