People use the Internet every day, at work, and at home. To be sure, many of us would jump at the chance to make these files and pages load faster.
We recently found out that in addition to the known methods, there are other ways to speed up a slow internet connection. Today we are happy to share them with our readers!
How Do I Make My Mobile Internet Work Faster?
Clear Your Phone’s Cache.
When the cache is full, all phone functions are slow, including connecting to the Internet. To remedy this, you can either manually remove each application or download a special program to remove them all at once.
Remove Unnecessary Apps.
All the apps you hardly ever use can significantly slow down your internet connection.
Better to remove all the widgets from your home screens that you don’t need right away. Even working in the background, they consume a significant amount of traffic.
Switch Your Browser To Text-only Mode.
If you don’t need to look at the images and only require written information, switch to text mode in your browser and disable the images. That way, Internet pages load much faster.
The choice of web browser you use on your mobile device also affects your Internet connection. There are many browsers on the market and some work much faster than others.
Check The Network Settings.
To do this, go to Settings and find Mobile Network Settings. The actual name of the menu may vary from device to device. You need to make sure that your phone is connected to the correct type of network and that it is not restricted to 2G or 3G only.
Most areas of the world work on GSM / WCDMA / LTE networks, so try it out first. If that doesn’t work, try to find out what your region uses. The main thing to determine is whether the best broadband technology is enabled.
How Do I Make My Pc Internet Connection Faster?
Choose The Right Location For Your Network Router, And Minimize The Distance Between The Router And The Pc
A weak signal from the Wi-Fi router is one of the common causes of a slow internet connection. To correct this, we recommend that you place the computer and the router as close to each other as possible.
The best place to put the router is near the center of the house, preferably on the wall or on a high shelf.
Make sure you are as far away as possible from your neighbors’ Wi-Fi routers, power cables, cordless phones, computer cables, microwaves, baby cameras, and halogen lamps.
All these cables and devices can interfere with the reception of the radio signal.
Run Antivirus Scans On Your Pc At Least Once A Week.
Viruses not only make your PC vulnerable to the threat of leaking valuable information, but they also slow down Internet traffic.
Optimize Your Cache.
Browsers store data from the websites you visit so that the loading of those websites will be faster in the future. However, a clogged cache can have a negative effect on browser performance.
Disable Any Updates That Are Not Needed At The Moment.
Internet speed generally slows down due to the activity of other programs, especially when they are updating their current versions. Therefore, it is advisable to always disable unused programs.
Block On-site Adverts.
Ad blocking involves hiding unwanted ad banners and links. After all, this type of data occupies up to 70% of the composition of any Internet page.
Needless to say, it significantly reduces your connection speed. Online advertisements can be disabled by selecting the necessary options in antivirus settings or with the help of special programs.
Make Sure Your Wi-fi Network Is Password Protected.
When an Internet connection is distributed via Wi-Fi, its speed is shared among everyone connected to the network. Therefore, if there are 20 people connected to your Wi-Fi at the same time and the maximum connection speed is 20 megabits per second, each person will only have a 1 megabit connection.
To avoid this, simply put a password on your wi-fi network.
