I believe the final speed is ultimately determined by your ISP. There are things to improve your speed if you think you're not getting the best speed you could.

Wireless vs wired will always slow you down. If you use a laptop and don't connect via ethernet cable then you will for sure be slower than with the ethernet.

In the end if your ISP limits the speed you can get then there isn't anything you can do about it.

What year was you computer made, who is your Internet provider, and what is your speed that your family pays for? That might be helpful for me to be answer your question...

Some people claim certain browsers tend to be faster than others as well. There's also the possibility of spyware/bloatware bogging down your connection.

Also, this thread belongs in the Computer section, so let me move it for you.

Hi getglazed. I have an important question for you. What are you doing that you would like to speed up. What do you find slow?

Is it downloading torrents? Is it when downloading files directly off the internet? Or is it browsing pages that you find slow?There is a veriety of options for boosting internet speed, but it all depends on what you want it for. Let us know, and also please do this for me:

Go to speedtest.net and click settings, then on the dropdown list near the bottom under "speed measurement" select kilobytes. Now click Save, then Take a speed test. Finally click begin test. It will now measure the true speed of your connection. After it's done, please tell me your Download speed.

Glad to hear it! It's a great site, and if you register an account, it will keep tract of all your scans, regardless of the computer or mobile device you use.

Also, if comparing download speads with Internet Providers, remember that ISP usually show thier speed in MegaBITS per second. Not KilyBYTES per second. So if you want to test and see if your speeds are what they should be, make sure you change the settings in speedtest.net to MbpS.

My old desktop used to be really slow! It all comes down to your internet connection and your computer. I bought a new laptop though and speed is so fast its un bare able to keep up! I tried many programs and different things to speed up my desktop and none of them seemed to work! I guess maybe it was just to old.
