Many people use USB internet cards and mobile phones to surf the internet on their computer or laptop, which do not offer more than 144 Kbps internet speed. Hence, I thought this guide would help those people surf the internet at a higher speed than ever. Why dial-up internet connection and USB NIC card for internet access have become slower to surf the internet?

Dial Up Internet? Tips To Surf Like Broadband Speed On Slow Speed Internet Connection 1

Due to the growth of technology, most websites are being developed in web 2.0 technology full of high-resolution images, flash animation, flash videos of promotion, and presentations to enhance the user experience. Still, similarly, this has put a requirement on high-speed internet connection. For example, Gmail (the most popular email service provider) has three different versions for different internet speed needs.


If you think you do not need a great user experience and you only need to surf for information and online contacts, there are few tips especially for you to enhance the speed of surfing the internet.

Disable Images and Flash content in your browser:

If you do not need images and flash content to be displayed while searching for text information only or working on your email client, you can disable them to improve surfing speed.

Install the plugin in your browser to block ads from advertising networks:

Some plugins are available (Adblock Plus for Mozilla Firefox) that allow you to block advertisements from certain advertising networks like Google AdWords. You can also configure it to block ads on certain pages or websites only or manually block any webpage items like frames, images, and flash content. Blocking unnecessary content this way will result in the fastest loading of any web page.

Install firewall application in your PC to limit internet usage to your browser only:

Installing a firewall is recommended not only for security against internet threats and spyware but to control the internet access in your computer or laptop. You can allow your internet browser only to access the internet and block any other background service or installed application looking for an update from their vendor’s website. So your internet browser can have access to the full internet bandwidth you have. I would recommend a zone alarm-free firewall if you do not want to pay for it.

Keep your PC / Laptop Virus and Spyware Free:

The most comment issue with slow internet speed is virus or spyware infection in the computer. Computer viruses and spyware will eat most of your internet bandwidth, resulting in a poor surfing experience. So keep your pc fresh and safe from viruses by installing the latest and updated antivirus program.
