The How-To Geek contributor Tim Brooks has shared a six-step guide to improve your Internet connection speed.

Brooks says, “Depending on your Internet Service Provider (ISP), you can often get faster speeds by calling them (or visiting their website) and upgrading to a more expensive plan. Your monthly bill will go up, but so will your speed. Before you do that, however, here are some tips that can speed up your connection for free.
