How can I make my Internet access faster?

Speeding Up Internet Access

Most of what makes the Internet slow for people in their day-to-day activities resides in people's own systems, not in their ISP. It's pointless searching for a high-speed ISP if you're connecting to it with a modem over a telephone line. To get a fast Internet experience start with your own hardware. Get a relatively high-speed, low-latency connection to the Internet like cable or DSL, and then ensure your computer is ready for the load. Connect to the modem via an ethernet port, not serial, parallel, or USB. Finally, ensure your computer has enough memory; in most modern computers this is more a bottleneck than speed.
