With the current rate at which people crave for getting access to the internet, there is a need for internet service providers to create a more worthwhile service that will deliver the best to the consumers. Over the years, the type of an internet connection system we’re more familiar with is letting us down with slow internet download speed and the rest.

I’ve been a victim of this for years because I was born in a remote area and I have to travel to a long distance before I could have a fair internet connection experience talk less of broadband – which is the best means of connecting to the internet as at this moment. Though, majority of the ISPs companies are claiming that they are offering broadband services, but the truth is few of them truly have the infrastructure in place to deliver broadband internet service.

And connection speed is number one major challenge of internet connectivity users throughout the world due to the fact most of the ISPs Company’s promises us in delivering the best while offering sub-standard services.

So, in this article are five primitive methods internet users can use to increase their internet connection speed overnight, without waiting for service providers to help them fix the problem – since we all know they do not have the system they claimed to have to take care of us.

>> Avoid Using Your Internet Connection behind a Brick Wall to Service Stations

Behind Brick Wall

One basic trick I have used over the years in order to enjoy my internet connection is by browsing from an open place with clear atmosphere. I always browse in an open place – the place where there’s nothing blocking my view or my router’s view from the service station.

A service station is the place where your service provider installed their broadcasting mast to deliver internet services to homes around your areas. If your router is being blocked from direct connection with the broadcasting station, chances are that you might not be able to browse the net faster and even better.

Make sure that you avoid all forms of objects that can block the view of your router and every other thing that pertains to your connection. If you are leaving in a place where there’s lot of big buildings covering your view from the south, north, east and west, make sure to always avoid staying indoor when browsing so that you can have good internet connection experience.

>> Reduce overload on your web browser

Internet Connection

On my blog, TechAtLast, I always inform people to avoid multi-tasking their web browser, but still, there’s still uncountable messages popping in from my readers asking for ways to make their internet connection fast. But, today, I will share this here once again – avoid overloading your web browser if you are using a slow internet connection, or if you are in a place where there is limited internet connection method. Multi-tasking reduces the capacity of your computer, your modem, your router, and your web browser which would now results into slow internet connectivity.

If you can reduce loading too many tabs on your web browser, chances are that you will get fast speed internet connection and do things faster than your pals who aren’t obeying this simple rule.

>> Disable auto-updates on your operating system

Windows Update

There’s countless number of programs that comes with auto updating features by default on your PC. You just have to locate them and change their settings. On Windows operating system, you can simply disable auto-update simply by

-| Opening the START menu.

-| Type in UPDATE in the search box

-| Select Windows Updates.

-| Once that is done, change its settings to never download updates”.

So that you can only download updates when you have time to download them or when your connection is less in use.

>> Update Your Windows Operating System

When you begin to notice that you are having challenges browsing the internet, one of the things you need to do is by checking your operating systems’ version whether it is outdated.

If is, then reload your OS to a newer version or call the attention of an expert to it.

>> Upgrade Your Web Browser Version

Another thing that could be of good relevance to improving your browsing speed on a slow internet prone setup is to check if your web browser version is updated. There are browsers which are not good for browsing when they aren’t up to date. Though, there are times as well when updating your browser version could be a bad choice. For example, recently when Mozilla Firefox update was being released, I downloaded it and installed that update on my PC, but it came as a surprise when the browser started malfunctioning, taking ages to load and some others like.

But the whole idea is, when you update your browser with few customizations, such as reducing the amount of add-ons and extensions, you’ll experience good internet connection better.

Hope these steps helps your improve your internet connection performance, please share your comments below and I shall surely respond to them one after the other.

  1. Wow what a nice & very useful post for increase internet speed. i like your tips.

  2. Hi Olawale,
    You are so right, you have to be careful about what you update. I have on two separate occasions had a problem with Firefox updates. One time, it was incompatible with two of my most used programs and I had to uninstall everything. You made some very good suggestions here, too.

  3. Yeah,

    I do support the idea of disabling auto updates because in most cases when this updates comes, there might be some data you don’t need that which you’d have to download along with the updates. Downloading the updates one after the other is the right thing. For security wise, you can download your update manually.

    Recently, the Axis browser launched by Yahoo has some bugs that needed to be fixed and even it happened that hackers can easily create a spoofed package and send across the victim’s pc on every updates.
    Also, in some areas of the world, the kind of internet connectivity they have there is different from the ones abroad. In a country where GPRS INTERNET is still the best, you can’t expect the citizens of that country to enable auto updates because it will exhaust their internet bandwidth and also affect its speed thereby causing the fellow to pay more for less.

    If you still have more questions, do let me know!

    From a security perspective for consumers this is the scariest thing I have ever heard and makes no sense.

    “Disable auto-updates on your operating system”…

    Why, why, why? Speed vs. security? Also why do you hate Mac so much :)
