First test your internet speed at Speedtest.net – broadband is anything from 3Mbps and up

Contact your provider – ask your provider to check your line and plan – some people are on old plans that may give them a better speed and increased download

Look at your router – the box that connects via a phone line – the 2 lights that you are interested in are the adsl light and the internet light.

A flashing ADSL light may indicate a problem with the phone line – if this happens repeatedly it can be the router or the line coming in.

If there are lots of devices and computers at your home then you may need to swap routers to one of the new wireless AC routers which can handle multiple connections to the internet a lot better than older routers and send the wifi signal further in your home or office.

If you connect via a portable wireless device , look at your provider , not all devices or providers are created equal and if you live in a mobile blackspot , connecting via wireless is not a great idea.

If you have malware this can greatly interfere with your internet connection
