Although, internet users choose the most optimum broadband plan in accordance with their usage needs and the service providers also commit high-speed internet to their customers. But the truth is the end-users don’t experience 100% of the committed speed. So, what can be done about it? Actually, it’s neither the fault of the user nor the ISP. There are several factors that affect the speed of internet connection.
Here are some of the methods listed below, which will help you to improve the internet speed, no matter which Wifi plans in Delhi are you using:
1. Remove The Reserved Bandwidth For System:
By default, the computer (both laptop and desktop) reserve up to 20% of the network bandwidth for QoS traffic, in order to expand the performance of applications based on ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning), video conferencing and windows updates, etc. You can change this default setting with the help of these steps:
- Press the “Windows” logo + R. It will open the small “Run” command window on left side bottom of the screen
- In this RUN window, type gpedit.msc and click on OK. Here you will see the “local group policy” window.
- On the left side column under computer configuration – Go to Administrative templates – on the right side double click on Network – QoS Packet Scheduler – Limit reservable bandwidth.
- In this space select Enable and change the “bandwidth limits percentage” from Not Configured to 0 (zero) and click on “Apply”.
By default, the setting is “Not Configured” which means you will get about 80% of the bandwidth of your actual internet plan.
2. Turn Off the Automatic Updates:
While you are using your computer system and it is connected to the internet, there are certain applications that keep running in the background, even if you are using offline applications such as office suite. In order to avoid this issue, you should turn off the “Auto-update” option in all the applications and software. You can do this for your windows too, as window updates happen too often. To turn off the window updates
Go toà Settings à Update & Security àWindows Update à Advanced à Disable the Automatic updates

Every time you browse some websites or download anything, its data is stored in your internet browser. Sometimes, your broadband connectivity improves after cleaning all browsing data from internet browsers. Browsing history can also slow down your internet connectivity. Clear or delete browsing history regularly, so as improve the internet speed.
5. Disconnect the un-used devices from internet
Certainly, the broadband connection allows you to enjoy multiple devices at a time. But, to an extent, it divides the bandwidth into all the connected devices. Disconnect the devices which are not in use, so that you can receive maximum speed to the devices that you are using.

Although, the above-mentioned steps are quite effective in optimizing the speed of your broadband connection. However, if you still don’t the right speed, it’s better to get in touch with your internet service provider. There could be some issues at ISP’s end.
