    Hello and Welcome.
    Usually, the most limiting factor is the ISP and what you pay for. If you aren't getting the advertised download speeds then you need to check with your ISP first. If you get advertised speeds or nearby, you might need to "upgrade" your service level for faster downloads.

    Hello, and welcome to the forums!

    With the info regarding the problem given so far, I'd have to agree with MikeTbob that you might need to purchase a faster connection. A more accurate answer will probably require a better detailed description of the problem.

    There are several ways on how to make internet faster. You can try running chkdsk, for instance. To do this, go to Start; select Run; type cmd; press Enter; type chkdsk; and press Enter. You can also defrag your computer. Go to Start; choose Programs; choose Accessories and System Tools; choose Disk Defragmentation; and choose Analyze.

    One thing that you will want to do is run a bandwidth speedtest. A very reliable one can be found at speedtest.net
    Simply click on the server nearest to your location, which is usually auto selected.
    The test will take about a minute or two. It will run a check on download, upload and ping results.
    So long as the results are fairly close to what you're paying for, then it may not be an issue with the ISP... and last I heard, I think they try to guarantee approx 75 to 80 percent of your download speeds.
