1. Start with your broadband router.

Did you know that most issues and problems with a slow or very slow broadband internet speed can be resolved by simply restarting your home broadband router, or business broadband router?

When you restart a broadband router usually 3 key things happen, 1. the router cache is reset and the router gets more memory performance, to help with speed. 2. Most modern routers will do a smart Wi-Fi check to see if the Wi-Fi channels are free from Wi-Fi channel interference, this alone can make a broadband internet connection speed slow or very slow. 3. the router can often get a better signal or a more stable signal from the internet service provider. And finally, a router may get a new software update to help with the speed and the performance of a broadband internet connection

2. Check with your internet service provider on the speed that you should be getting.

Ask or find out by using a well know internet speed test tool to with get an estimate on the broadband internet connection speed that is getting to your home or office.

Did you know that your internet service provider can give you the information on the best possible broadband speeds that you home or office can get, most broadband providers have information tools and system that can give an accurate report on the broadband speeds from a postcode, or from a landline number, and also from the address location of the property?

3. Find out if you have a Wi-Fi performance issue or a broadband speed issue.

A quick way to find out if you have a slow broadband internet speed for a Wi-Fi network is to test the speed and performance using a ethernet cable from the router to a computer, if you have a laptop computer or a desktop computer that is close to your router.

This can be a quick way to see if a slow broadband speed is on a wired ethernet network, or just from a Wi-Fi wireless broadband connection.

Do you have more than one router or you have Wi-Fi Extenders or Wi-Fi Repeaters?

A Wi-Fi Extender or a Wi-Fi Repeater might sound like a good idea, however, in most cases, the design of a Wi-Fi Extender or a Wi-Fi Repeater can cause a Wi-Fi network to give a better Wi-Fi range, but a poor Wi-Fi network speed and Wi-Fi performance.

One of the ways you can help with a Wi-Fi network, if the range is poor, is to consider a newer router that has a much better W-Fi range and performance, or to look at getting a newer solution from a Mesh W-Fi network.

Is the broadband internet speed slow on just one computer or device?

If your home broadband speed is slow only from one PC computer or from one Apple Mac computer, chances are thar the PC computer or Apple Mac computer is infected with a PC computer virus or on a Apple Mac computer Mac Malware.
