3) Use IDM (Internet Download Manager) to boost your download speed by 500%
You must use IDM to download your favourite files. IDM has many features like Pause and Resume support for files. IDM usually splits your files and download them parallel which gives a boost in download speed. Though, IDM is paid software but you can use 30 days trial of it.
If you do not want to buy additional Download Manager, then you can use alternate download managers like Free Download Manager (FDM) etc. These download managers are not effective as IDM but they will surely improve your downloading speed.
4) Try turning off your updates (Not recommended)
This method works pretty well actually. Though, we do not recommend you to turn off Windows updates and third party program updates but at least you can stop them from running in background when you are downloading any file. This method will boost battery life of your laptop as well.
5) Remove any virus from your PC
This method also works most of the times. As, sometimes many trojans or malware gets installed in your pc which eats up download speed in background. These malwares not only eat up internet speed but performance and battery life as well. So, do a virus scan. We recommend Quick Heal Total security as it repairs all files which is infected by virus instead of removing them.
So, it was all about methods to increase download speed. These methods will surely boost your internet speed as well as download speed.I am damn sure, after implementing all these tips you will get at least 200% boost in download speed of your pc.
