How to get rid of slow Internet on computers

Just tired of slightly slow internet?
Windows uses 35% of your bandwidth which makes your internet slow.Here’s how to Get it back
A nice little tweak for all windows. NOTE: Please don’t comment like ” can this work in windows 8.1?”, “can this work with windows 10?”, and those blah, blah.
I mean it works with all windows. Microsoft reserve 35% of your available bandwidth for their own purposes (suspect for updates and interrogating your machine etc..)
Its one of the old stuffs in Windows.
Here’s how to get it back:
Click Start–>Run–>type “gpedit.msc” without the extension.
This opens the group policy editor. Then go to:
Go to Local Computer Policy–>Computer Configuration–>Administrative Templates–>Network–>QOS Packet Scheduler–>Limit Reservable Bandwidth
Double click on Limit Reservable bandwidth. It will say it is not configured, but the truth is under the ‘Explain’ tab :
“By default, the Packet Scheduler limits the system to 35 percent of the bandwidth of a connection, but you can use this setting to override the default.”
So the trick is to ENABLE reservable bandwidth, then set it to ZERO.
This will allow the system to reserve nothing, rather than the default 35%.
