Have you ever wondered why your broadband internet connection is always slow? Are you used to thinking that your slow internet connection problem has something to do with your ISP or do you think you might be doing something right on your path?
The funny thing about broadband internet usage today is that many people are getting way too low broadband speeds than is certified today and they just can’t figure out what might be wrong. I have also experienced a similar situation and this article will be giving you a few tips to help you ensure you always get faster broadband internet access.
Check the inner virus
As internet technology becomes more sophisticated there have been more reports of virus infection over the years. The problem however is that these viruses are not just simple viruses but stubborn viruses that can destroy your computer at the blink of an eye – and funny still, they first have a duty to download all the files on your computer and send it to the fellow who programmed them which ends up resulting in your computer and internet connection becoming frustratingly slow.
It is very important for you to make it a duty not only to install the best antivirus you can lay your hands on but to always do your best to update it every day. You should also make it a habit to be scanning your computer regularly as this way you will be able to notice ahead of time if your computer is likely going to be infected by a virus.
Remove the clutters
All those desktop icons that you haven’t clicked for two months now. Those software applications you never opened since they have been installed and all those folders you keep on creating. They are all clutters that need to be checked and you should never for a moment allow them to take over your computer.
Every single file you add to your computer makes use of its resources, and this ends up making your computer slow and thus affecting your internet connection. If you really want to get the best from your computer then make it a duty to be optimizing it regularly by removing all clutters and by ensuring you only have files and applications you really need to use.
What are those add-ons doing?
Experiencing slow internet connection problems is not restricted to clutters only, and it is not a product of a low computer configuration alone, some little unsuspecting things like which add-ons you install on your browser can make a huge difference in how fast your internet connection can be. Always make it a duty not to install any add-on you won’t be using regularly. Also, if you really need an add-on try to see if there is any other way to get the same service without having to install anything on your browser. Trust me, the less of those add-ons you have the better your internet browsing experience.
Might it be your ISP?
If you’ve followed all the tips above but can’t make any progress then you might want to consider getting in touch with your ISP to lodge a complaint and ask them what might be causing it. You also need to realize that sometimes it might just be the occasional network problems, and in cases like these you have little to worry about, but if the problem is something you experience always then you might want to give trying a new ISP a thought.
