Why is my Internet slow?

I have broadband Internet but it's real slow at the moment. I can't even watch YouTube videos.

My mum always wants it turned off when not in use, could that be effecting the speed? Also the modem is oldish, about 6 years old.

Or what else could be making it slow? It's not the monthly cycle it is slow the whole month.

    1. Your computer software is running slow because it is clogged up with bugs.
    2. If it is only one website maybe that website is giving trouble.
    3. Maybe your internet provider is having problems at the moment.
    4. It cloud be your modem has gone faulty and you need a new modem as they do not last much longer than 6 years.

    This is just a few problems it could be.

  • You might be capped..

    • It has been like this for a while
