A slow internet plan can be a major headache, but identifying and addressing the underlying issues can greatly improve your online experience. Here's how to tackle common causes of slow internet:
Unoptimised Wi-Fi setup
Older modem or router
Malware or virus
Overload of devices
NBN connection type
Insufficient speeds offered on your plan
Distance from the node (for NBN FTTN connections)
Crowded Wi-Fi channel
Identifying the root cause of your slow internet and implementing these solutions can significantly boost your online speeds and ensure a smoother online experience.
Determining the right internet speed for your needs before buying your plan will help you avoid taking out a plan which is too slow. Some of the key factors to consider include:
Remember that having a bit of extra bandwidth can prevent slowdowns during peak usage times. While it's important to meet your needs, you don't always need to go for the fastest plan available. Balancing speed and cost is key to selecting the right internet plan.
