Here is a website to measure your speed: by Ookla - The Global Broadband Speed Test

Once you measure your speed, compare that to the ISP plan that you paid for each month. If it is within range, there is not much more you can do to increase the speed.

In my experience (speaking from cable modem), there is not really much to do if you have the latest cable modem. Maybe update firmware? Make sure you research carefully before you upgrade any firmware. Using wrong firmware for hardware can mess up your hardware.

There are 1 or 2 other things that you can do. However, if you are satisfied with the current speed, leave it alone. The other thing is TCPOptimizer from

If you download it, make sure it's the correct version for you operating system.

Other than that change the virtual memory settings to system managed. That should be done anyway.
