    Improving Your DSL Connection

    (Page 1 of 6 )

    As life seems to keep getting faster, we want our technology to keep up. This is especially true of our Internet connections. If you're looking for a way to squeeze more speed out of your web surfing and online research, keep reading. The information in this article won't help everyone, but even if it doesn't help you directly, you might find it useful.

    Hardly anyone connects to the Internet using dial-up these days, or so it seems. Broadband connections cost considerably more than dial-up ever did, but many people are willing to pay the price for the extra speed. Are they getting a fair deal? Or, to put it more bluntly if you use a broadband connection: are you getting the throughput for which you're paying?

    In this article we'll focus on how we can fix the problem if your answer is "no,"  and how we can notch up our Internet speed. To start with, we should get a few things straight. First, the main factor that influences your Internet speed is your contract with your Internet Service Provider (ISP). You will never have more bandwidth than you are offered by the company you're using.

    The second point to remember is that some connections offer the maximum speed possible already; this is due to the technology used. Therefore, if you have anything other than a DSL connection (does optical fiber ring a bell?), preferably an ADSL connection, then I have bad news for you. This article won't cover/contain anything useful to you; maybe some basic knowledge of DSL at best. Still, being informed is always an advantage.

    We'll start with a little basic information about DSL connections so you can easily understand the obstacles that lay between you and the maximum speed that you were told you could achieve when you signed the contract. As soon as we get through the theoretical part we are going to start looking into some real-life situations.

    There are dozens of applications that promise major speed improvements. I will explain them to you shortly. Let's see what works and what doesn't! Which ones manage to match expectations and which fail to offer any benefits?
