it’s usually the service provider you are using.
They are cutting corners like crazy rigth now and about to loose millions of customers as a result.
On the other hand, your computer might be corrupted by malware that Microsoft has failed to address.( for 30+ yrs)

I started using StopZilla about a week ago as AVG was not doing the full job for me and found my hard disk loaded with Spyware.
It’s running much faster now.
I think it was $10.00 – worth every penny so far.

The speed comes and goes, and sometimes there is obvious maintenance at some level happening. Once you have your browser up once in a session, it appears that it comes up faster thereafter. Lot of it is the antivirus activity in the background. As time goes on, the antivirus and internet security stuff in general becomes more complex. Old computers will have trouble dealing with all the background activity. Spyware, Adware, etc can slow you down, as can other processes related to other programs that are updating, looking for a time to pop up etc. Defragmenting your drive might help a bit also.

I haven’t seemed to have that problem. I have a rather large bandwith for the internet.
