10 Tricks to speed up your Internet connection

10. Check Your Speeds (and Your Plan)

9. Troubleshoot Your Hardware

8. Fix Your Wi-Fi Signal

If you’re using WiFi, you might find that your router and internet are fine, but your wireless signal is weak, causing a slowdown. In that case, you may need to tweak and boost your router with a few tricks. If you suspect wireless signal is the problem, check out how to fix your wi-fi.

7. Turn Off Bandwidth-Hogging Plugins and Apps

Which services uses the most bandwidth?

6. Try a New DNS Server

When you type an address into your browser, your computer uses something called DNS to look up and translate that into a computer-friendly IP address. Sometimes, though, the servers your computer uses to look up that information can have issues, or go down entirely. Check out how to find the fastest and most secure DNS servers.

5. Optimize Your Web for a Slow Connection

Troubleshooting slow internet can take awhile, and in the meantime you still need to browse. Or maybe you’re at a coffee shop or on a plane, and there’s nothing you can do about your slow speeds. In that case, it’s time to optimize your web for a slower connection: use mobile or HTML versions of your favorite sites, disable images, and use features like Opera Turbo. In fact, we recommend setting up a secondary browser on your laptop for just such a situation — it can really make a difference when you need to work on a slow connection. Google has its own Data Saver Extension, which employs the company’s servers to compress browsing data before it reaches you.
