Top internet tips
Want to get the most out of your time online? These handy tips will help you to do exactly that.
Limit your browser add-ons to the ones you really need. Remove any unnecessary programmes and applications so they don't slow you down.
Regularly clear out your temporary Internet files.
When using a download application, remember to set a limit on the upload speed.
Install an anti-virus to keep your computer and connection protected.
If you have a Wi-Fi modem, keep it visible.
Make sure your Wi-Fi access point is encrypted and password-protected, to avoid neighbours logging on and sharing your speed.
Don't open too many websites at once.
Remember that some websites are simply slower, perhaps because of geographical distance, slow Internet links to the server, inadequate hardware, popularity, or a combination of them all.
