Hi James,
There are several reasons why your internet connection become slow. To be able to speed up your internet connection, first you should have to do some basic maintenance in your pc. Just like run defragment, a scan disk, a virus scan and by clearing the recycle bin. Usually low internet connection maybe infected by the virus found in your pc that affect the connection of your internet.
You should have enough space in your C: Drive for about 1/3 of the capacity. Second, Reset your home network, if you have a router. Third, Check your home network equipment generally. If you have many computers connected in your hub you must unplug it and use a router because hub is a dumb a lower level equipment that slower your connection.
Fourth, Upgrade your computer, even if your connection is fast but your personal computer is slow theres nothing we can do, all you have to do is to upgrade also your computer. Fifth, Your speed connection is slow because other programs are using it. To test if other programs working/running such as anti-virus and other updates, without your knowing.
Click start, Select Run, then Type cmd. Type nestat-5 > activity.txt. After a moment, hold down Ctrl and press C. This has created a file with a list of all programs running with your internet connection. Now open the activity.txt and you will see the list of programs.
Sixth, Press the Ctrl + Alt + Delete to view the Task Bar, and then select the Tab Process and try to close those process that stealing your valuable bandwidth. I hope this steps will gives you idea on how to speed up your internet connection. Happy surfing.
