A slow connection is not a problem if you want to access a website on your computer. With the help of a fast web browser and a specific plug-in, you will be able to access websites in a much improved speed. If you want to test how fast your internet connection is you can do it online by visiting Ookla Speedtest.

Just click on “BEGIN TEST” to start testing the performance of your internet connection. It will first perform a ping test followed by the download test and then finally the upload test. The result of the test will look something like this.

Another way of testing the speed of your internet connection is by using NetWorx. It is a bandwidth monitoring tool that also allows you to do a speed test. Download and install the program. Use the supplied password to unpack. To perform a speed test, right-click the NetWorx icon on the system tray and select “Speed Meter”.

After this, you should have a better view of how fast your internet connection is. Now, to improve your browsing speed, download and install the Opera browser from Opera for Windows PC. This is the ideal browser for users with slow connection. Now, to further improve the speed when browsing websites, activate “Opera Turbo”. Click “Menu” and then select “Opera Turbo”.

When this option is activated, it compresses the data as you browse from website to website therefore improving your connection speed. When data is compressed, the size of the data being transmitted and received is very small allowing fast exchange of information. If this is not enough and you still want a much faster access speed, install an extension called Disconnect on your Opera browser.

It loads pages 44% faster by removing all ads from the page including tracking links allowing you to visualize the website in a raw format without all the ads. It works on Opera 15 and up.
