Internet connection performance, such as from a DS3 line, T1, or DSL, can either be slowed down if the person in charge of the connection doesn’t know much on how to use it effectively.Last year, many people complaint about low speed internet access due to one reason or the other. But, among those complainers, none of them shows any sign of finding the actual cause of the slow speed internet they are experiencing. And that is why I am writing this article to show you in case you’re having any challenges browsing the internet with fast speed access or if there is anything that is affecting you to download from the web.
So, I have to share with you three things you should start doing in this New Year if you want to enjoy your internet connection or else, something different might happen – which I suggests to be a sluggish kind of internet access.
Download latest version of your browser
If you are using an old version of web browser like Firefox 7.0 or lower version, there is higher chance of you getting slow internet experience than using the latest version which is version 9.0.1. Even if you are still using version 8.0, that one is still better than anything lower because most of those versions are out of date with security and speed and you can’t enjoy what you are doing with such a browser.
Install Good antivirus
Make your computer secure so that it can be free of all the internet dangers that may be having negative effects on your connection. You should make sure that your PC is well secured so that you can be free of any dangers that may arise from lack of protecting it. When there’s an up to date antivirus on your PC, you can be very sure of not getting infected with virus and trojans or malwares.
Malwares and trojans are dangers to internet access if you don’t know before and you should avoid them on your PC because they exhaust internet bandwidth faster than any other thing. They have power of using your bandwidth to send and receive files over the internet unaware to you.
Upgrade your PC operating system
Another thing you need to put into consideration is your computer operating system’s age. If the type of operating system you have installed on your computer is of old ages like window 2000-XP on Windows platform, be quick to change to latest version as soon as possible. Failure to do so will make it very hard for you to have a fast speed internet access. Most of the ISP’s companies are now using latest operating system configuration when producing their modems and dongles and you need to have good system that is up to the rate they prescribed for you when you wanted to subscribe to their service.
