    Improving Your DSL Connection - Conclusions

    (Page 6 of 6 )

    The speed at which we connect to the Internet is quite fragile. There are so many factors to consider, and so much can go wrong. If you have a DSL connection, even if everything is operating well and according to the plan, you won't enjoy the speed advertised by your ISP. Of course the bandwidth you'll be promised is usually under a policy of delivering the Best Effort. So the company isn't responsible for offering the highest speed. It offers to you what it is able to in the specific situation.

    That means you'll see some high ping times and some low speeds for the download and upload section. Furthermore if the network becomes agglomerated, these penalties go even higher due the fact that the DSLAM is overwhelmed.

    In this situation the intelligent user searches for a way to improve his/her life and try to use the service for which s/he is paying each month to its full potential. Although the net is quite full of so-called "download accelerators," the reality is that the heyday of the dial-up connection is gone, and with it, the software that actually made a difference.

    But all isn't lost. In some unique situations a download manager can make a difference; if you play some games and the lags are making you go crazy, give cFosSpeed a try. It may not improve the speed for a well-configured setup, but it could give you the edge you need for enjoying your in-game experience while you download data from the Internet.

    But regardless of any software, the best method you can use for improving your download/upload speed is to contact your ISP and sign a contract for better speeds. The drawback is that you'll have to pay more.
