The speed of the internet depends on several factors. Here are some of the points you need to take care of or check if you have a WiFi connection and your internet speed is slow.

Things to check when internet speed is slow

Check the modem: Generally, whenever we face slow internet connectivity, the first thing we check or make changes to is the router. However, you actually need to check the modem, not the router. It can be known that a modem is a device which connects your home network to the internet service provider. While a router is something which forwards data packets between computer networks.

You need to check the positioning of your modem too. Check if there is no interference from heavy objects, and walls. Changing the location of the modem and bringing it closer to your electronic device can make some difference in the speed of the internet.

You also need to check for updates. If your device has pending updates or if some updates are taking place at the backend, it may lead to slower internet. You can click on remind me later to avoid such situations and can update your device in your free time.
