It is because of fuel economy and hence running costs..

Modern jets use turbo fan engines which are a lot more economical but are a larger diameter than tradition jet engine of yesteryear. You just need to look at the diameter of an engine from a old photo of a Boeing 707 compared to a modern jet.

The large diameter engine is vastly superior on fuel and hence running cost, but are bit more of a drag. Thus reduced speed.
