Thread: Speed up your internet speeds

    Can certain programs really speed up the computer and its Internet connection? Internet Speedometer McAfee is another tool that can tell you how fast or how slow your Internet connection is. Why donít you guys try it? Maybe if you use it, you will see if using certain programs really improved the performance of your computer.

    Not really, no.

    I wouldn't fully agree with that. There's admittedly very little you can really do to boost the actual download limit, but there's always the possibility of improving your own computers performance with software maintenance utilities. It's POSSIBLE but highly unlikely, that your network thruput could be compromised to the point where it's actually slower than your net connection - bear in mind that most wired connections are going to be between 10 and 20 times the speed of your internet connection so it'd take some SERIOUS issues to get that as a bottleneck (unless of course you have some off-the-scale internet connection). Wireless is a little easier to saturate depending on range but there's not a lot software can do about that.
