One of the best ways to get faster internet is to get a newer modem or check the firmware and software on it. You can log into your modem by following your brand’s instructions and check to see if the firmware or software is old. It needs to be checked regularly in case an update is added to help with issues you might be having. You also need to consider updating your computer's desktop version since the wireless settings become less compatible over time. When modems get to be between 2 to 5 years old they start slowing down or they go bad. Buying a new modem can offer faster and more reliable wifi with the answer to frequent drop-outs. While you are looking at your modem check your phone lines and cables connected to your modem as well. If they are super long, old or damaged they could be reducing your speeds. You can always look around for other internet providers in your area. It is likely that there aren't many options if you live in a rural area, but it is worth checking. Viasat is supposed to be sending new satellites into space in the next year and will give all of America the option to get high-speed internet through satellite. There are more ways to get faster internet in your area, it just depends on what steps you want to take and how bad you need it.
