How to Increase Internet Bandwidth by up to 20%

Internet bandwidth refers to the amount of data your computer receives and sends over the Web. Different kind of connections will give you different bandwidth. For example, a dial-up connection will give you significantly less bandwidth than DSL or broadband connections. Using Microsoft’s built-in Group Policy Editor, you can make changes and improve your Internet bandwidth.

  1. Click on the Start menu and select “Run.” Type without the quotes “gpedit.msc” and press the “Enter” key. This will launch your Group Policy Editor.
  2. Navigate to the following folder in the left pane: “Local Computer Policy” > “Computer Configuration” > “Administrative Templates” > “Network” > “QOS Packet Scheduler.”
  3. Double-click on “Limit Reservable Bandwidth.” This will open a new properties dialog box. Click on the tab labelled “Setting.”
  4. Click to select “Enable” under the sub-heading “Limit reservable bandwidth.” By default it is set to 20%
  5. Reduce “Bandwidth limit” by clicking on the down arrow to “5%” or to “0%” and click on “Apply.” Hit “OK.” Restart your computer to end task.
