Internet Speed on a Pocket PC

Pocket PCs come equipped with multiple ways to access the Internet, such as Wi-Fi and cellular, giving you the luxury of choosing the fastest available connection. But sometimes none of your PDA's (Personal Digital Assistant) available connections are acceptable--they all may be running slow. However, with a little optimization, you can give your Pocket PC's Internet connection a boost and surf the web faster.

This article will help you to Increase the Internet Speed on a Pocket PC

  1. Adjust your Wi-Fi's power settings. Tap the "Start" button on your Pocket PC, and then select the "Settings" option from the menu. Tap the "Connections" tab, and then tap the "Wireless LAN" icon. Select the "Power Mode" tab. Move the slider over to the "Best Performance" heading to strengthen your Wi-Fi signal.
  2. Install a faster browser on your PDA. Not all mobile browsers load web pages the same way. And selecting a browser that handles web pages more efficiently than your current one can increase the perceived speed of your Internet connection.
  3. Use a mobile Internet optimizer to accelerate your connection. Essentially, an optimizer blocks unnecessary processes and traffic, preventing them from cutting in on the bandwidth of your mobile Internet connection and boosting the speed of your connection.
  4. Get a stronger signal. Whether you're using Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or a cellular connection, getting a stronger signal will increase the speed of your Internet connection. Use your Wi-Fi or cellular signal display to help you position your Pocket PC for a stronger signal.
