The elements that determine internet speed have two primary characteristics: First, the amount of downstream and upstream provided by your internet service provider (ISP). This can be checked using the free SpeedTest website. Second, the rendering speed of the browser and operating system installed.
Increasing internet speed through your internet service provider can really only be done one way, through dropping additional money on the service. Many internet service providers offer flexible plans for increasing bandwidth, and for most people they should be concerned with the amount of downstream they possess.
Fortunately for us, increasing internet speed through the rendering speed of the browser and the optimization of operating system TCP protocol is something we can control.
Internet browsing speeds can be significantly increased by simply switching to an alternative browser. Most benchmarks show that Google Chrome, Apple Safari and Mozilla Firefox significantly outperform Internet Explorer in browser rendering speeds. They also offer many of the same features and allow for the quick import of shortcuts. I personally recommend users switch to Chrome, as I found it had better performance, but fewer features than Firefox.
Other than spending more money, there is very little a user can do to increase the internet speed from their internet service provider. Thankfully we are not limited to only the service provider for improving the overall browsing experience. Installing a fast, free alternative to slower browsers including Google Chrome, Apple Safari and Mozilla Firefox. Getting rid of Internet Explorer can yield a much better experience for web surfing without spending any extra money.

Google Chrome is an extremely powerful and efficient internet web browser that has grown substantially since it’s release. I often recommend individuals consider installing more than one efficient web browser, just in case certain features on web pages are designed with certain browsers in mind. Google Chrome remains one of the best choices in speeding up Windows XP internet browsing.
