There are two things that you need to do above everything else.
1. Make sure of the advertised internet speeds associated with the package deal you’ve purchased.
2. Do a speed test to ensure you are getting the speeds your service provider is advertising.
Options to try when optimizing your internet speed
• Try a different connection. Perhaps the way your computer is connecting to the internet is the problem. Try connecting directly to the router using the Ethernet rather than Wi-Fi.
• If you are using Wi-Fi and you can’t or don’t want to get around it, try boosting your signal by putting your router in the best location. Sometimes rebooting the router can offer good results.
• Check that you and you alone are using your Wi-Fi. If there is no password set for your Wi-Fi, it is likely that someone else will be using it. Take proper security measures by adding passwords to your connections
• Clear out your browser caches and run a system scan on your computer for any viruses.
• Ensure that there are no applications updating in the background that may be hogging the bandwidth.
• Check that your firewall settings are not playing with the signal.
• If you are serious about boosting the signal, invest in signal boosters, ask a professional to help you decide on the best option for you.
• Keep activities that you know will require large amounts of bandwidth for the times of the day when the signal is good (this is usually when the rest of the majority of users are not using their signals.) Do major downloads and updates at this time.
