4 simple ways to boost your broadband speed

After a hard day’s work, all you want to do is sit down, relax and enjoy your favorite movie or series. So, when your internet is acting up and you’re left staring at a buffering screen, it can be really frustrating. Of course, everyone wants to get the best broadband for their area, but how do you improve your internet speed and ensure you have the best connection possible?

Check your times

Internet speeds are affected by the number of connected devices in use at any given time. That’s why your connection can lag at peak times when people are using phones, tablets and computers all at once.

Check out the busiest times on your network and avoid carrying out data-heavy activities such as large file downloads. If you’re part of busy household, consider scheduling downloads while everyone is at work or school. This will lessen the load on your connection and speed up your internet.

Know your usage

Are you an avid gamer, serious streamer or a social media surfer? How you spend your time online can affect your internet speed. Activities such as video calling or online gaming can use more data and in turn, slow your network down.

To combat slow internet speeds, try using a wired connection for data-heavy activities. This will make your own internet faster and free up the Wi-Fi network for mobile devices.

What’s on offer

One of the key factors in getting a faster internet connection is ensuring your bundle matches your needs. For example, if you have recently started working from home or have online gamers in the house, it might be worth revising your package. Use a broadband availability checker to find out what speeds are available in your area.
