Reasons Why Choosing the Right Internet Service Provider is Important

By Cody Subscribe to RSS | January 25th 2012 | Views:

No wonder, the Internet has replaced Television as the king of home entertainment. Internet gives us the luxury of enjoying the virtual world right at the confines of our homes. We can do a lot of things like downloading, web browsing, online chatting, exchanging emails, online shopping, net banking etc. Thus, the benefits of the Internet are innumerous and can't be doubted by any means. However, one common problem that most Internet surfers encounter is the slow Internet connection. When you wish to download a movie or song, the speed becomes a paramount importance. Slow Internet transfer rates can be nerve-racking more often than not. Sometimes, you may encounter slow data transfer speeds even with high-speed Internet connections. Obviously, your Internet service provider is the one who has to be blamed for that. The services of some of the providers don't seem to match up to even half of what they advertise. There are three important factors associated with the Internet speed. They are as follows:

•Downloading speed

•Uploading speed


As we all know, the download speed is the rate at which you download and retrieve data or information. Uploading speed is the speed at which the information is transferred to the Internet. The latency is nothing but the time gap between the two points of data transfer. In some Internet services, the download is so slow that you sometimes feel like making a quick recipe on your own before the download process begins. The more the download speed is, the faster the application gets downloaded. Elaborately speaking, a download Internet speed of 20 Mbps works streams movies ten times faster than an Internet connection having a download speed of 2Mbps. This saves a lot of time. However, the rate also varies according to the download speed package that you opt for. For users who wish to check their emails, the low speed would be an ideal and cost-effective solution.

You have the option of checking the data transfer speed of your Internet connection. Every service provider has their own tools installed in your system with which you can check the download speed of your Internet connection. Just allow some application to download and monitor the live download speed. If the speed is much less than what your service provider had offered in your package, then you can take a dig at them. Nevertheless, to avoid such issues, it is best to go for reliable high-speed Internet service providers such as the Verizon FiOS Internet. They also offer tailor made packages for phone through their FiOS Digital Voice service. You may check out their home page to know about their services and latest offers. Verizon FiOS has a dedicated customer support team that works round the clock 24*7. You may get in touch with them to know about the latest deals and offers of Verizon FiOS Internet.

In addition to choosing the right service provider, it is also important to make sure that your system configuration is updated regularly. A system that is more than five years old works much slower than a system with the latest system configurations. Just check your processor speed and upgrade it once in a year or two.

Speeding up your system is very simple. You just need to do some basic operations to pace up your PC. Given below are some simple steps that you can do to make sure that your system works with the maximum speed.

Disk clean up

Disk defragmentation

Checking for virus

If your hard disc has limited space, try to save an external device like the USB or DVD for data storage purposes.

For detailed information on these steps, refer the websites or tutorials available on YouTube. Once the cleanup process is done, gear up for a new browsing experience.
