How to Increase Downloading Speed in BSNL Broadband

As we know BSNL is the Indian government owned telecom company, that provide different services like landlines phones, wireless phones and broadband internet connections.
BSNL broadband internet connection is the most widely used broadband service in India. But many people find the download speed is not upto the mark. If so, BSNL provides an option to upgrade the internet speed by
opting for another plan. Currently BSNL offers bandwidth of upto 8MBPS.
But if you're not interested to upgrade to a new increase the internet speed using some tips, then here are the detailed instructions.

How to Increase Download Speed of BSNL Broadband?
Generally windows reserves 20% of the bandwidth provided by the Internet service providers. So if we can reduce the limit to 0, then we can use the complete bandwidth allocated for us.
  1. Go to Start -> Run
  2. Type "gpedit.msc" to open the group policy editor.
  3. Navigate to "Local Computer Policy" -> "Computer Configuration" -> "Administrative Templates" -> "Network" -> "QOS Packet Scheduler" -> "Limit Reservable Bandwidth."
  4. Now, double-click on the option named "Limit Reservable Bandwidth" and change the value from 20 to 0.
The third-party DNS servers are always better than the default BSNL DNS servers. So changing these can help you increase the download speed of the BSNL broadband.
  1. Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Network and Sharing Center/Network Connections -> Open "Local Area Connection" and click on "Properties" button.
  2. Now click on "TCP/IP" and in the DNS address fields, replace the current DNS servers with the below two addresses.
  4. Click "OK" and restart the Internet connection.
That's it! The above tips worked excellently for me to increase my BSNL broadband speed.
Note: Windows 7 Home Edition (64 bit) doesn't have gpedit.msc option. Hence, skip the first step and go with the second option if you're win 7 home user.
