It is undoubtedly necessary tooptimize your internet connection.

Increase internet connection speed with TCP Optimizer
You should know that in order for two computers to communicate, they use a common language called TCP / IP (Transfer Control Protocol / Internet Protocol). This protocol splits information (web page, rar file, etc.) into packets, adds a destination address and ensures the delivery of these packets to the right port (your computer).
Thanks to the software TCP Optimizer, it is possible to optimize this process, which speeds up any activity related to the Internet.
Indeed, the software will modify entries in your registry in order to optimize your TCP protocol. This application easily finds the best MTU values (Maximum transmission unit) and RWIN (TCP Receive Window), and integrates the most reliable parameters, optimizing the capacity of your bandwidth as well as the speed of your Internet connection.
How to use TCP Optimizer?
First of all, download TCP optimizer, then open the application in Administrator mode, then check "Optimal" and validate with "Apply change". Restart your machine and the software takes care of everything.
With an ADSL connection of 4Mbps. Be aware that these are not megabytes, but Megabits, and theoretically, like 1 byte = 8 bits, in other words, you have to divide the number of Mbits by 8 to obtain the theoretical throughput in MB!
So, 4 Mbits/s, that gives 512kB/s (Kilobytes per second) maximum in download.
Typically, you download at speeds close to 220KB / s instead, and not the official 512s. This is because your PC is not using your connection optimally, and this is what TCP Optimizer allows you to remedy.

20% of your local network bandwidth is reserved by the Windows QoS service. And this for the needs of updating and downloading functionalities, which means your internet connection is therefore restricted to 1/5th of its speed.
All you have to do is remove this limit to increase the speed of your internet connection. Your speed will then be as efficient and as fast as possible.
How to do ?
