Resolve Technical Problems with Internet Cables

It is possible that the cause of internet running slow is that internet cables are broken due to rain or other reasons. Contact your internet service provider, file a complaint regarding your issue and an official will personally guide you.

Use a light Browser

Often internet runs slow if the web browser is using lots of system resources at the same time. In simple words, lot of files are being processed by your web browser.
If you’re still using Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox, it’s time to rethink. These web browsers process lot of files in the background while you’re surfing the internet thus you start experiencing slow browsing. Try to use alternative web browsers such as Google Chrome or Opera which are quite faster.

Optimize the Internet Performance
Internet running slow could be due to the fact that existing settings contain some features enabled which do not support your computer or which utilize more resources. Such settings should be changed and the internet speed should be optimized.

Perform the steps given below:
  1. Download an Internet Optimizer such as RegInOut System Optimizer program and install it.
  2. Run it from its desktop shortcut.
  3. Click Internet Optimizer tab on the left side.
  4. Select Slow speed and click Optimize Internet button. The process shall begin now.

Update Network Drivers
Generally, we install the network drivers from the CD ROM provided by our internet service provider. This doesn’t install any new updates released by the company from  time-to-time. Such updates are required in order to speed up internet and fix internet running slow issue.

Control Bandwidth Usage
Bandwidth stands for the data transmission rate; the maximum amount of information (bits/ second) that can be transmitted along a channel.

Internet may be running slow on your computer because the programs/services that run in the background are performing internet-based tasks and using highest bandwidth. Take an example- You’re browsing the internet with Internet Explorer and at the same time the Windows Update tool is downloading new updates for your computer. Of course, web sites and downloads will become slower.

Speed up Internet Instantly !
