How Can I Speed Up My Network?

There are many reasons why your internet may be going slower than usual.

It could be a slow DNS server, too many devices on your bandwidth, low signal strength on your cable line, low Wi-Fi signal, or a problem with your router or modem. Let’s dig into it.

How Does a Slow Network Affect My Business?

All organizations need a reliable and fast internet connection. A slow network can affect your employee productivity, which will affect your company’s productivity as a whole. It can also affect the quality of your customer service. No matter what size business you have, you likely use the internet for many things all day long, such as email, file transfers, and other day-to-day activities. A sluggish network can waste about 15 minutes a day, and that adds up to 50 hours of lost productivity per year per employee. That’s a lot of wasted time.

Can I Speed Up My Network?

Not only is it possible to speed up your network, it’s essential. Your company cannot afford to lose 50 hours per year per employee, no matter how well you are doing. Whatever your industry, having a fast internet with the best upload and download speeds can save you thousands of dollars per year. The main thing you need to do is to find the best IT team that specializes in networking.

Here are a few of the things that can be the problem, and can be adjusted to increase network speeds.

  • Upgrade internet service

  • Explore for data-hungry devices on your network

  • Replacement of modem and routers

  • Remove viruses and malware

  • Look into data caps

These are just the first steps to speeding up a network. From here, everything from network configuration to the individual devices needs to be scrutinized.

IT support professionals can help you with advanced network issues such as:

  • Replacing outdated equipment

  • IT security

  • Fixing improperly set up or configuration of WIFI

  • SD WAN implementation

  • WAN optimization
