Utilize Reserved Bandwidth of the computer to increase Internet Speed

Getting sick with the slow speed of your internet connection? More or less we all think that it depends on the network provider but it is affected by different other factors. One such factor is network bandwidth.

Now what is network bandwidth? System reserves 20% of the total data interface provided by the network provider for QoS (Quality of Service), this reservation is done to deal with the Qos traffic which includes video streaming, windows update, VoIP, etc but this 20% is only reserved when you are using this Qos. If you are not using the same, by default you might be getting a speed of 100%.  And if you are using that service but still not utilizing it to the fullest then you are wasting a part of your data interface unutilized.

Now here is a tip to recover the part of unutilized bandwidth. What you have to do is:

• Click Start then Run and type “regedit.exe” without quotes.

• Then Navigate to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows folder

• Right-click on the Windows folder, go to New, click on Key, and name the new folder that is created Psched

• Click (single left-click) on the new Pshed folder you just created.• Right-click in the right-pane (the white space), go to New, click on DWORD (32-bit) Value, and name the registry entry that was created NonBestEffortLimit

• Right-click the NonBestEffortLimit key you just created and select Modify

• At the window that pops up make sure the Value data is 0 and and the base is Decimal

• In the place of decimal you can write whatever reserve you want to maintain. Suppose instead of 20% you want it to be 10%, write 10

• Then hit OK

• And finally restart your computer

By using this you should be able to increase your internet connection speed to some extent.

  1. It would not let me renaming the folder “Psched”.The registry cannot rename New Key #1.The specified key name already exists.Type another name and try again.
