Running A VPN

Most cord-cutters use a VPN to protect their identity and privacy while using free or low-cost streaming applications and services.

Running a VPN will reduce download speed due to the fact that your Internet traffic is being routed through an encrypted tunnel.

The most popular VPN among cord-cutters is NordVPN due to their blazing fast speeds and zero-log policy.

If you are already using a fast VPN service, try changing the server that you’re connecting to within your application.  Keep doing this until you find a server that provides maximum download speeds while your VPN is on.


Upgrade Your Internet Service

It may only cost an extra $5 to $10 per month to double your Internet speed by contacting your provider.

Some of you may be on older plans that will allow a free upgrade to a much better speed by simply placing a phone call.

Use Ethernet Connection When Available

If you can connect to your router via Ethernet cable instead of Wi-Fi, this will create a much more reliable connection.

Position Your Wireless Router Properly

Your router should be placed in a location that is central to your home.  This will ensure that all rooms will receive the best coverage possible.

If you have a larger home, you should consider upgrading your router, or investing in a network extender.

Don’t Conceal Your Wi-Fi Device

If you’re connecting by Wi-Fi, your device should be placed in an area that isn’t blocked by large obstructions.

Try to place your device in an area that will receive a good signal from your router.

Reboot Your Hardware

If you’re having issues with your Internet connection, try unplugging the power to your Cable/DSL modem, router, and streaming device for 10 minutes, then plug back in and try again. This will reset your network and fix many problems that you may be having.
