How can you improve your internet speed?

First, let's narrow it down to make sure your internet connection is the root of the problem. Try reaching a different website or app than you’re currently using to connect. Next, try using the app or website on a different device to make sure it's not specific to your device.

If that doesn't solve the problem, take our internet speed test and compare it to your current plan. To get the most accurate reading of the available bandwidth on your connection, make sure you stop any internet usage first.

Should you find that your internet is slower than it should be, there are a few things you can troubleshoot. First, try rebooting your modem and router. To do so, you will need to unplug each device from the power outlet. After you unplug them, wait at least 10 seconds for the equipment to fully power down before you plug it back in. As your devices reboot, it may take a few minutes for the modem to reconnect to the internet. After the system has reset, see if your internet connection has improved.

Next, assess your bandwidth usage. Your internet speed is impacted by the amount of available bandwidth. Each device that is connected to your WiFi competes for its share of your available bandwidth. Too many active devices will result in a slower internet connection. So, make sure you aren’t saturating your connection with too many devices. Watch below to learn more.
