For those looking to increase bsnl broadband speed.
So, I was doing keyword research, and found that this exact phrase “how to increase bsnl broadband speed” has 1,000 local searches. I was pretty much amazed to see this no# of searches for as bogus search term as above, and thought I should create a post and eliminate any misconceptions people have, about increasing their broadband speed.
Guys, ISP’s (Internet Service Providers) put speed restrictions at server end. Generally, they deploy some software to keep track of your speed. That means. you can’t bypass this restriction because its setup on the same server you are connected to. Unless you hack this server and make it overlook your system, its not possible to increase your speed. Well, hacking server is not as easy as it sounds like, and also illegal, so you better not think about doing it. An easy and legal way to increase your broadband speed is by upgrading your data plan. Or, looking for an alternate ISP.
You may find tutorials and videos out there claiming to increase bsnl broadband speed, but believe me, none of them works. And that’s for the same reason. The restriction is set up at server level and unless you hack the server itself, its not possible to bypass speed limit. Makes sense, doesn’t it?
The best you can do is to optimize your Internet connection by using a light, fast browser such as Google Chrome. Also, you can use Google’s public DNS server. BSNL’s primary and secondary DNS servers are not as effective as Google’s, so if you set your system to use Google’s DNS, you may experience an increase in overall site loading time. This will not make any difference to your download / upload speed, its just the time it takes to resolve hostname to an IP address, and that’s what DNS does.
There is a tool out there to help you locate best DNS server for you, its a free tool available for download, here
Besides using a fast browser, and using best DNS servers, there is nothing much you can do to increase your broadband speed. If you are not getting what’s promised by your ISP, then that’s a different story. But, if you are getting promised speed and are looking for a way to further increase it, then you may stop wasting your time, because you will end up with no such trick. Hope this helps and save you some time you would have wasted looking at those ‘HACK YOUR SPEED’ articles :)
