Deal With Slow Internet During COVID-19 Period

Do you have slow speed internet? Here are some explanations and recommendations to optimize your speed and avoid saturation.

Internet is defined as "bandwidth", using the example of a 5-lane highway. Cable, ADSL, 3G, 4G, Fiber… everyone uses the same route but each at a different speed.

When everyone is connected at the same time (which is currently the case) it's like going on vacation or coming back from it, a lot of "traffic" at the same time, everything is slowed down ... until traffic jams.

We must therefore do our utmost to avoid this situation and think about people who work, hospitals, authorities, and people who cannot reach their relatives.

What to do then? Some recommendations to follow:
  1. If you have an IPTV system and you are not watching TV, turn off your receivers! They continue to stream in HD while no one is watching.
  2. Avoid watching videos in 4K, 1080p and Ultra HD On Youtube / Netflix / etc, choose a 720p mode,
  3. If you are in 4G switch to 3G, this will still allow you to receive Instagram / WhatsApp notifications, it's even more stable
  4. Avoid WhatsApp calls and especially video calls and use normal calls, it will save you from dressing, making up, shaving;) and it frees up a lot of space.
  5. On Netflix you can download your episodes / seasons to watch after online: do it late at night before sleeping, it avoids streaming during the day for a few days.
  6. On Spotify / Deezer / Listen to music and Apple Music you can also download your favorite playlists online, do it once and for all and no longer stream during the day, especially in 4G.
  7. Finally, turn off your IPTV receivers when they are not in use! It’s like leaving your faucets open all day, wasting bandwidth for no reason.
