Whenever I calculate how much time I spend on the internet every day, I can only imagine how frustrating it will be if I were to be using a slow internet connection.
Most people are going with a broadband service provider these days for good reasons, and I’m sure speed is one of those reasons. Now, try to ask yourself these questions; how fast is your internet connection? Are you really getting the speed you are supposed to?
As someone who helps people to choose the best internet providers, it has always been my priority to ensure they enjoy faster access to the internet, and I will be giving you a few tips to help you improve your internet speed in this article.

One great way you can improve your internet speed is by using a proxy service. Web servers work in a similar way to human beings, and as a result using a proxy server might be one of the best way to get faster access to the internet. So that you get what I mean, a website located in Florida will be more easily accessible when you’re accessing the internet with a Florida proxy server compared to when you are accessing the internet with a server from the UK, so using a proxy server in the same location as the website you are accessing can help improve your internet speed.
[stextbox id=”info”]#2 Use a Different Browser[/stextbox]
You can also speed up your internet connection by using a different browser. Most of us are already used to using a browser like Mozilla Firefox, and the problem with Mozilla is that it is starting to become very slow lately. If you are also experiencing this problem and are not comfortable with it you might want to try changing to a browser like Google chrome.

Sometimes, the problem isn’t with your browser or the location of your internet server; sometimes, the problem is with those little applications running in the background. A great way to improve your internet speed is by disabling background applications using the internet. You will be amazed at how much faster your internet can be once you have disabled these applications. Some of these applications are Antivirus and Firewall upgrades, automatic software upgrades, Windows upgrades and your backup or synchronization software. Removing these software applications can make a lot of difference in how fast your internet connection is.
