Increase Internet Speed

Every Internet user wants higher speed even when s/he has low bandwidth Internet connection. Whatever the Internet speed you have been leveraged, you only use the 80% of it. This is because the Windows operating system reserves the 20% of the bandwidth for automatic Windows updates. Whenever you connect with Internet, your operating system starts searching for Windows updates. After finding the updates, it starts updating the Windows. This reduces your Internet speed by 20%. You can use this 20% of the reserved speed to surf Internet much faster than earlier. Windows provides you an editor called Group Policy Object editor (gpedit.msc) to set the reserved speed to 0%. Perform the following steps to utilize 100% of the Internet speed you have been paying for:

1. Select Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Command Prompt. The Command Prompt window appears.

2. Type gpedit.msc and press the ENTER key. The Group Policy Object editor window appears.

3. Double-click the Local Computer Policy object in the left pane. It displays a hierarchy.

4. Expand the Computer Configuration branch.

5. Expand the Administrative Templates branch.

6. Expand the Network branch and select the QoS Packet Scheduler branch. It displays the various QoS Packet Scheduler items in the right pane of the Group Policy Object editor window.

7. Double-click the Limit reservable bandwidth option. The Limit reservable bandwidth Properties dialog box appears.

8. Select the Enabled radio button and sets the Bandwidth limit (%) to 0%.

9. Click the Apply button.

10. Click the Ok button.

Now, you can utilize the 100% of the Internet speed.
