Speed up your Internet

Windows reserves 20% of your available bandwidth for their own purposes, like Windows Updates and interrogating your PC, etc.

You can get it back. Just follow the steps below to enjoy more internet speed:

  • Click Start>Run and type “gpedit.msc” without quotes. This opens the group policy editor.
  • Then go to Local Computer Policy
  • Choose Computer Configuration
  • Then go to Administrative Templates>Network
  • Now head to QOS Packet Scheduler>Limit Reservable Bandwidth.
  • Now Double click on Limit Reservable bandwidth
  • It will say it is not configured, but if you look under the ‘Explain‘ tab, you will find, ” By default, the Packet Scheduler limits the system to 20 percent of the bandwidth of a connection, but you can use this setting to override the default.”
  • So the trick is to ENABLE reserved bandwidth, then set it to ZERO.

This will allow the system to reserve nothing, rather than the default 20%.

Enjoy faster speed!
