How to increase internet speed on Windows machine?

You would be surprised to know that. Windows reserves the 20% of your internet bandwidth for its use. If you’re using Microsoft Windows OS genuinely or otherwise, you are a part of Microsoft development through error crashing reports and all.

Do you think you deserve to use 100% of internet bandwidth you have paid for?
If yes is the answer follow these steps:

  • Right click on the taskbar then selects Task Manager to open “Task Manager”. Then click on file menu then select “New Task (Run)”.
  • Type "gpedit.msc" without quotes. This opens the “Group Policy Editor” and goes to: "Local Computer Policy" Go to "Computer Configuration" then "Administrative Templates" then select "Network" then "QoS (Quality of Service) Packet Scheduler" After that, select "Limit Reservable Bandwidth". 
  • Open Limit Reservable bandwidth, It is “Not Configured” by default. To know the cheat click on Explain tab.
  • Not Configured means: The Packet Scheduler limits the system to 20 percent of the bandwidth of a connection."
  • Now, you have to do is to ENABLE Reservable bandwidth, and then set it to ZERO. This sets the system to reserve nothing instead of the default 20.

Now fly with your 100% efficient internet!
