Even after subscribing the best internet package from the well-known internet service provider many people are fighting with the problem of slow internet connection. The speed of your connection is not only determined by your internet package plan but there are many more factors for the case. There are many tools and techniques which you can use to significantly increase your internet speed. After reading this post you will get some tips so that you can boost your internet connection.
About Your Web Browser
Many people are still using Internet Explorer; the default browser in Windows for exploring the web. It’s true that Internet Explorer is a decent browser but it uses lots of resources which will help to make your internet connection slow. When you are browsing advanced web pages a number of processes will be necessary to load them which will use your lots of bandwidth and make you feel that your internet connection is slow. So if you are using Internet Explorer then I request you to move on to other options like Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome or Opera.
Even after following my suggestion and changing the browser you may still feel your internet connection to be slow. If this is the case then there is a very simple solution for that to which people may ignore, this is not the problem of your browser so do not blame it, but you must have a lot of add-ons loaded in your browser which is the case which may not be useful to you. First of all disable all the unnecessary add-ons and make sure that the add-ons that you are using are totally necessary. If you are not sure about the add-ons then it will be better for disabling it.
Are your Drivers Up-to-date
Another factor affecting your internet connection may be your outdated drivers. It is found that outdated drivers have something to help in malfunctioning of broadband internet connection. If strange activities are acted by your system concerning the internet access then make sure that your drivers are up-to-date. If your drivers are out of date you can ask for its latest version in your nearby computer store or download it from internet.
Is your Hardware Up-to-Date
Have you ever had concerns about your hardware? I have seen people using 1999 year made modem and complaining about his slow internet connection. Isn’t it same? Make sure that all of your outdated hardware is upgraded to boost your current slow internet connection. More than 95% of the problems that you are facing may be solved by just upgrading your outdated hardware.
What about ISP
Are you still fighting with the slow internet connection even after doing everything what I said? If yes then you must be using the cheapest internet packages from your ISP. In this case we can’t do anything except purchase a better plan. And if you are using the best package (according to your ISP) then contact them. They will only solve your problem.
