How to Fix Slow Internet Connection Speeds

Why Do You Need a Faster Internet Connection

Sometimes in life we can keep the pace slow and get things completed well - just not with internet speed. If your Internet is not up to par, you will experience internet disconnections, freezes, and slow internet response. If you have any of these, it can ruin your online sessions. Whether you use your internet for schooling, a corporate meeting, that loved one's wedding, we all gathered virtually to be a part of while distancing.

Remember waiting all day to get your turn on the computer, that was shared, to log onto your internet thru a dial up? Those were the days my friends, thank god they came to an end! Today when you get locked up and are awaiting the buffering wheel, are you reminded of those days of long ago? How about when you lock up on a stream, mid-though at the work conference, you have to disconnect and then get back on and well; they moved on from that topic. Read on for a way to keep you moving at a pace worthy to keep you in the race.

Usual Causes for Slow Internet Connection

There are various reasons for having a slow internet connection. The most basic test you can run is a speed test. This is so you can confirm how slow your internet is.

  • If you get a slow Internet connection on a specific device only, you may just have to reboot the device. Or you may need to perform an antivirus scan to check that everything is fine.
  • If the slow Internet connection appears on multiple devices, then it’s almost certainly a network problem. Power cycling or rebooting the router is a good first step, but if the issue is still present, you should call your ISP or Internet service provider for assistance.

The slow Internet connection can also be caused by WiFi interference, a slow DNS server, or various malware. 

How To Make Your Internet Connection Faster

If you get a slow Internet connection on one of your devices, here are some tips to deal with it:

  • Stop background programs that hog bandwidth – some applications run background processes that are hidden. Those can quietly consume network resources. Check your operating system and settings for any apps that are doing back-ups in the cloud or installing updates and stop them.
  • Use a wired connection instead of a wireless connection, if possible. Hooking your computer directly into your router or modem will limit signal interference and maximize your connection speed.
  • Restart your computer, smartphone or tablet. Try using only one app – the browser, for example. Fewer running applications can improve your connection speed.
  • Use all available connections on your device at the same time. That will get you faster and more reliable Internet. You won’t be able to do that out-of-the-box within the operating system, but you can use a channel bonding app like Speedify.
