Mobile Broadband Dongle Boosting Your Internet Connection Speed

This is a guest post by Spencer. If you want to guest post on this site, then please read our guidelines here.

When trying to boost your internet speed you must first make sure that your internet connection is the problem and not your computer. In order to make sure that adware, spyware or malware or viruses are not affecting your PC or Mac you must first run a full antivirus scan and remove anything that the scan deems necessary. After checking for viruses and malware you should load an anti spyware program such as AdAware or Spybot. These programs will allow you clean out any remaining programs that are slowing down your internet connection. Also make sure that anytime you need faster speeds to dial down the amount of downloading you do, downloading big files while trying to surf the web can slow down your computer significantly.

Also clear the full history, cookies, and internet cache from all the browsers and computer. If you are able to back up your data you should also do a full restore on your computer because many spyware and viruses often avoid security measures. The only way to truly make sure your computer is clean is to completely reset it.

After this you must unplug and reset both your modem and router if you use one. This will clear the memory on the devices and give them time to restart, generally if it is a modem or router issue resetting both will clear up the problem. If your router is defective return it and purchase a working model. Once you have done this check that all connection in and around the area where your computers router or modem is plugged in are firmly secured and not hanging or loose.

The third step to boosting your internet speed is finding out what that speed is. This is the basis for how you will figure out what speeds you are happy with and which are just too slow. You can check your download speed on a number of websites, many internet service providers offer a counter on their home page or you can simply search Google or any other search engine for an internet speed test and you will be able to find a decent tool to gauge your download and upload speeds. This will also allow you to do an effective comparison of Internet service providers.

Once you find out how fast your connection is, contact other service providers in the area to find out what their download and upload rates are. T1 to T3 lines are generally the fastest you can obtain in a residential area, and even then they are incredibly expensive. Cable and DSL are generally the next fastest and their speed in your area can be determined by a number of factors. Cable is better when less people are using it, so if you live in a neighbourhood or house with a small amount of people you might want to consider cable. For DSL the farther away you are from the signal relay station the weaker your signal is. DSL however has no issues with how many people use it at a time.

After your comparison of internet service providers choose the one that is right for your area and your individual internet needs and finally boost the speed of your internet connection.
