How to Speed Up Internet Browsing

If you've ever tried to stream the most recent episode of your favorite show in full HD, or play a modern online game which requires a fast Internet connection, you know how frustrating it can be when some of the data packets aren't being sent and received, and the action freezes for good.

This issue is well known and very serious, and yet over 100 million Americans have poor Internet connections – or no web access at all! So, if you want to improve your Internet browsing speed, the very first step is to ask your Internet service provider if you can upgrade to a better data plan. Begin by evaluating the current speed of your Internet connection by using a site like this one; if the data isn't transferred at a speed of at least 50 Mbps, you should strive to upgrade your Internet plan asap...



How to Speed Up Old Laptops

Did you know that, on average, a good laptop should last for 5 to 7 years? It's true that as we upgrade to newer operating systems and we install demanding software applications, performance can be affected. Here's what you need to do to make your portable computer run fast once again.

Replace the old hard drive with an SSD; this is by far the most effective method to boost your laptop's speed.

How to Speed Up Wi-Fi

Wireless Internet connections are fantastic, because they provide great mobility. And yet, people who use Wi-Fi keep complaining about poor speeds and reception, network disconnects, and so on. Here's what you need to do to boost the speed of your wireless connection.

Begin by evaluating the current signal strength of your Wi-Fi. According to a report from Data Alliance, average signal strength ranges from -50 dBm to -70 dBm. Signal strength will increase as you come closer to the router and decreases if you move away from it, of course. To evaluate your wireless network, install one of the Wi-Fi analyzer applications that can be found in the app store on your smartphone, and then measure signal strength; you will want to use this value...

How to Speed Up Your Smartphone

I've got a confession to make; I have installed a few hundreds of apps on my smartphone in the past. I have chosen some of them because they were useful, and most of them because they were free for a limited time. Something strange happened as I was installing more and more apps, though; my phone started to slow down – a lot! Here's what you should do to regain control over your smartphone and boost its speed.

Firstly, you should uninstall all the unused apps and data. Yeah, get rid of those useless apps, "funny" photos, WhatsApp conversations, text messages, and so on. If you feel that a particular app may be needed in the future, don't worry, you should be able to find it and reinstall it from your Play Store/App Store...



How to Speed Up Your Website

Did you know that the companies which manage to boost their website's loading speeds see significant increases in revenue? Here's what you need to do if you want to make your site load faster, and thus improve its conversion rate.

Start by minimizing the number of HTTP requests. According to Yahoo Developer Network, 80% of the end-user response time is spent downloading page elements: images, scripts, and so on. The browser will make a new HTTP request anytime it needs to download a new image or a script, for example. This means that website pages which utilize simple designs, loading fewer elements, have the potential to run much faster. So, use an image or two per page at most, combine several scripts into a single one, merge all your CSS files into a single stylesheet...
