There are several steps you can take to maximize your Internet speed

Router Placement

Your router sends out radio signals in all directions that can be blocked by physical objects or walls. If you are experiencing poor Internet performance in a certain area, try to move the router so it is within your line of site from the problem area. Removing items located around the router can also ensure the radio signals can travel the path of least resistance.

Wired vs. Wireless

A wired connection will always be faster and more reliable than wireless. Try plugging your computer directly into the router with an ethernet cable.

Computer Opitimization

Malware or viruses, programs running in the background, and other device settings can all cause a drain on Internet speed. A device with a clean bill of health can make a big difference.
