How to Make a USB Modem Faster


Mobile Internet technology, provided through USB modems, can provide a reasonably fast Internet connection as long as you are in an area with good coverage. You might run into slow and unreliable service at times, however. If so, there are a few steps you can take to make a USB modem faster.

  • Navigate to the "Internet Options" folder in the "Tools" section of your Internet browser. Clear out the cookies, cache and Internet history. A buildup of data can severely slow down your browsing capabilities.

  • Ensure that you have connected the USB to a USB 2.0 port on your computer. USB 2.0 provides a far faster connection than USB 1.1.

  • Close all programs which might be running simultaneously. The fewer programs you have open, the faster your machine's performance.
