You aren't going to get the best performance of your highspeed always. Stuff like this varies in wiring both outside and inside your home, try getting a data telephone cord (usually gray and thicker that a regular phoneline or a good phoneline, the length of your ethernet cable, the distance between your company's service providing plant and your house. Try getting a faster connecton speed.

How do I improve my broadband connection or download speed (aka Access Line...


The Access Line or Connection (download) speed is the speed of your Broadband connection between the local telephone exchange and the wireless router. This is the speed that Broadband is able to provide into your home rather than the actual speeds that you experience when using the internet.This download speed is typically twice the speed of your available upload speed.

Be careful all the major ISP's will test your line and come back to you will a max speed of about 3MB (3072 kbps OR 384 kB/sec) and sell you the product on this basis I have never got anywhere near this tested value. If you divide the tested value by 1/3 this would be a more reasonable speed.

For example if your ISP is able to provide you with a 1MB connection your maximum download speed will be 1024 kbps, in reality you will never reach this due to exchange limitations a connection (download) speed of 900 kbps (0.8MB OR 112 Kb/sec) would be more realistic and 350 kbps (0.35MB OR 44 kB/sec ) for uploading.

If you browse outside the peak period your speed will increase. However It will reduce significantly during the peak period from 5pm to 12am. If you want to download large programs or files, try doing this overnight or at a different time of the day.

Clearing your cache won't make you browse faster it is a collection of files which record your activity on the internet. These files are usually stored in your computer's Temporary Internet Files folder.
They can make browsing the web faster, as loading a page you've visited before is quicker if your computer has kept a record of images and other components within the web page. Clearing these files away can free up space on your hard drive and resolve certain problems you may experience while browsing like slow browser speeds !!

Tweaking your TCPIP can help here is a reg tweak that will optimize your registry WRT your TCP parameters; internet caching and simultaneous downloads.

Test your actual connection OR download speed here and e-mail it to yourself you can also set it to create a graph of your download times it will also show you a comparison of you and a typical value from your actual service provider, you will never get any where near this I use Sky Mid at the moment and I max out at on a 1MB line about 900kbps (112kB/sec) they say sky should offer you 2827kbps (354 kB/sec) which would be 80% of a 3MB line.

Smart test based on your connection speed =>
http://testmy.net/dl-96

If you start the automatic test and leave your PC on for 24 hours you will see at what time your connection will max out, the results are stored if you become a regsitered user, this link will test upload and donwload ( this is your line speed) in kbps (kilobits per second)

http://www.testmy.net/tools/test/scheduled_test.php?r_time=1

when finished to you can download the results to a csv (comma separated value) and import into Excel to see a pretty graph if you like.!!!!

N.B.> Make sure you close down VoiPs and Torrents and anything else that will sap you download speed before you do this test also I recommend rebooting your router to gain the optimum results

U Tube Starts for a few moments and then stops and carries on for a few seconds and stops again


Its all about buffering issue. What is the download speed of your internet connection. If its broadband, with a minimum of 50k download capacity, then you need to check if there is any back end process that is killing the download band width and bit transfer. Please write back if you got help from my comments and advices. Good Luck

I have broadband internet connection on my computer. the download speed that it shows is 100mbps; whereas i get only 20mbps. how do i get a higher speed of downloading.


hey , this is always the case.
if it shows 100 mbps does not mean you will get 100mbps download speed.as far as i know no internet connection provides 100mbps download speed.

however a little improvement can be made in the speed by optimising your settings .
you may use Modem Booster , download accelerator for this purpose.
if you do lot of downloading download idm(internet download manager).to accelerate your download.

one thing i should add for your knowledge.understand the difference between mbps and MBps.B stands for byte and there are 8 bits in a byte so take a conversion factor of 8.this is a general misconception among people and whilie downloading note that the speed is shown in B and not b.

Regards.
Please vote if satisfied.

My broadband 512kbps gives a transfer rate of 25 to 30kbps. There was a one time when it gives average of 100kbps but now drop to only 30kbps of download speed. Anyway to increase its speed? Please help...


hello fellow broadband user, if you ask me what to do, its simple the speed depends on the broadband provider, it doesn't mean that you can all get the speed, it depends on the connection we called this internet traffic. if you want to increase your speed upgrade your plan

that is to do with your internet connection you have only purchased a low speed package ring your inet company and tell them your problem they will tell you exactly what speed you have and offer minor solutions to improve the speed but it wont make much difference and they may offer to upgrade you to a faster one but it will cost you

Download issue n inter net issue


try reinstalling your windows your OS might be corrupted from a Virus infection. viruses or worms usually hog your Internet , that might result to a slow internet connection.. 
Also if you have a 256kbps connection, your download speed of 25KBper sec is normal 
because 256,000 kbps / 8bits = 32 KB/s (thats your maximum dl speed)
but assuming there is a loss in transmission about 15- 20% lost your max dl speed is only 25.6 KB/s thats why your connection is normal.
