Bad modem can be one of the reasons for the speed decrease. Ensure that the router suits the internet plan.

2) SEE FOR VIRUSES/MALWARE

Viruses living in your PC suck your resources which results in slow speed of internet. Download and install a Anti-virus software and enable it for a regular check so that the virus does not enter.

3) INTERFERENCE

Software like Firewall or other anti-viruses can interfere with the internet speed. To solve this, turn off the software and do speed test.

4) GOOD QUALITY FILTERS

If your router is connected to phone line indeed connected to telephone, ensure that good quality filters are installed.

5) CORDLESS PHONES

Try to remove your phone and replace it with another one. Check whether this increases the speed.

6) EXTERNAL INTERFERENCE

Electronic devices cause electromagnetic interference. This causes the speed to decrease. Solution may be to remove the devices from the modem range.

7) CABLES

Length and the structure affect the internet speed. Use shorter and new cables and replace the old cables and sockets.

When it comes to internet speed, there are two things that contribute to this: your Internet Service Provider and the settings on your computer. The main factor why your internet speed is slow is your ISP or internet service provider. The second factor, the configuration of your computer, only comes second. ISPs offer different types of internet subscriptions or services.

One example is LTE which is a kind of wireless internet service. Most of the ISPs offer this service on a per-volume basis where each plan has an allotted amount of bandwidth or volume of data to be consumed every month and specific speed for every plan. Another example is DSL. DSL is a wired internet service that is normally offered with unlimited internet usage.

Since DSL is wired, it is normally bundled with a telephone service. Another example is fiber which is the fastest but also the most expensive internet service. Like DSL, fiber is also wired and also bundled with a telephone service. No matter what internet plan or service you are using, your ISP is still in control of the speed.

If you want a faster speed, you need to subscribe to a much higher plan. If you want an internet with stable speed that is not fluctuating like with LTE, go for DSL or fiber. Now, if you want to optimize or further improve your speed, the second factor comes by installing applications that can optimize your computer’s configuration. One example is TCP Optimizer.
