I have been having trouble with my Internet download speed. I have recently moved to a broadband VDSL 20 Mbs connection. However, doing a speed test, it only gets to as much as 5-6 Mbs. I have called my Internet provider dozens of times, they have checked the settings at their place and mine, they've changed the old electric wires, they've changed the modem. The Internet speed remained basically the same.
Also I do not have any other computer or device installed on the Internet line. It just shares the phone connection, but according to the provider this doesn't interfere with the speed in the case of VDSL.
Now after all the struggle they say it must be something on my computer that's limiting my download speed...They say the proof is that when I start more downloads the overall speed increases, so I must have an individual download limit...
Could that be possible? What kind of settings could be limiting the download speed on my computer? Is it possible that the computer being older is the fault (the hard is from 2002 I think)? I don't know what settings I could check to find out where the problem is.
Thanks very much in advance!
