What to Do if Your Internet Speed Is Slow

If you feel like your internet speed doesn’t live up to your expectations, it might be time to have a chat with your ISP (Internet Service Provider). If you’re finding it difficult to schedule a call and fix your slow internet connection, here are a few tips that can help.


Understanding the Basics of Your Internet Connection

In order to find out how fast your internet connection actually is, you need to perform a speed test. This basically means connecting to a server and then timing how long it takes for data (usually a file) to be transferred from that server back to your computer. Note that different servers will give you different results, depending on where they are located (and their distance from you). Generally speaking, choose one that’s close by.


What You Need To Know About Fiber Optic Broadband in UAE

Is fiber optic broadband internet in Dubai better than regular DSL and cable internet services? What are all of its benefits, and what kind of download speeds can you expect from your provider in Abu Dhabi and elsewhere in United Arab Emirates (UAE)? These are some of the most common questions we get asked. People in dubai and other places have heard about fiber optic services but aren’t sure if they’re worth it or how much faster they really are.


Understanding Download Speeds and Their Relation to Upload Speeds

Download and upload speeds are a big part of our monthly internet bill, but what do these numbers actually mean? For an in-depth discussion on all things internet speed, check out one of our previous articles. In short, your download and upload speeds should be at least 1Mb/s each to avoid any major connection issues.


Understanding Download/Upload Ratio

Download speed refers to how fast data is pulled from a server, while upload speed indicates how quickly information can be sent to a server. This ratio—or disparity—is more important than you might think. If your download speed far exceeds your upload speed, it’s likely that you have an outdated plan that can get even better. The opposite scenario means you’re probably paying for more bandwidth than you need for everyday use.


Understanding Different Types of Network Connections

There are multiple different types of internet connections to choose from, each with their own pros and cons. DSL, cable, and fiber are all commonly available options. Cable is generally considered to have faster download speeds than fiber or DSL but at a cost—typically higher monthly fees. Fiber has increased in popularity over recent years due to its faster speed and reliability; however, it’s still not available everywhere yet.


What Factors Affect My Broadband Speed?

There are many different factors that can affect your broadband speed. These include how far you are from your provider’s switch, how much broadband traffic there is at peak times, how congested a telephone exchange your home may be connected to and what infrastructure you are using such as ADSL or Cable.
