Use a Good Router

The better your router, the faster your internet speed will be. The reason why most people get a slow internet speed is due to having a low bandwidth router which faces difficulties in handling multiple users and has a lot of interference from surrounding networks.

Make sure to test different spots to see where the router will perform best and change the signal to one which isn’t too congested.

When Internet Speed is Slow, opt for Ethernet

If you took a look at the first point on the infographic, you should be in shock right now. The difference between a wireless and wired connection when it comes to slow internet speed is huge!

We know it’s not always easy nowadays to find a wired connection and you really don’t have to either. But whenever you need a quick boost and can’t find anything else that’s working, hook that ethernet cable up and be witness to a whole new world of internet speed.

Clean Up the Computer/Smartphone/Tablet

Today’s technology is quite adequate in being able to support, send and receive data at blazing fast speeds. You don’t need to worry about upgrading your device if you bought it within the last five years or so. What you really need to be doing is making sure that there aren’t a bunch of files and junk of your internal storage drives which is hindering your device’s true potential.

Regularly delete older files and maintain a certain empty space on your internal storage. 10-15% or more is the magical number here. Not only will you not get a slow internet speed because of all that junk taking up space, you will also see a drastic improvement in the device’s overall performance as well.
