How to improve broadband speed
Internet speed depends upon many factors. One of the main aspects to be considered is your own PC/Laptop. Download speed may vary based on the settings of the computer.

There is no point in going for a fast Internet connection unless your PC/Laptop is ready to match with the Internet speed you have subscribed in.
