Fiber internet providers are likely to offer the fastest, most consistent speeds for the money. Cable internet providers can also deliver fast speeds, up to 100 Mbps and higher, but are more vulnerable to slowed speeds during peak usage times. If you’re shopping for cheap internet, a DSL provider may be the best option for your household.

There are many factors that can influence internet speed. In many cases, restarting your router will resolve speed and connectivity issues. Other factors, such as peak usage times and speed throttling can also cause temporary speed issues.

Wi-Fi extenders are handy when your router can’t project a strong signal to everywhere in your home that you need it. Your internet provider may offer Wi-Fi extenders for an added monthly cost, or you can purchase one online or from most electronics retailers.

Resetting your router and optimizing your router settings can give you an instant speed boost. Consider Wi-Fi extenders if your signal is weaker in certain areas of your home. Also, be sure to check your Wi-Fi network to see if there are any unknown devices or users connected that could be slowing your network.
