Bandwidth is generally the measurement of how fast the data can be transferred over a wired or wireless connection in bits per second(bps).

To do so
- Go to start -> search run
- In run type gpedit.msc (it opens group policy editor)
- Navigate to Local Computer Policy -> Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Networks -> QoS Packet Scheduler -> Limit Reservable Bandwidth.
- Double click on Limit Reservable Bandwidth and then change the value from 20 to 0.
If you do not have group policy editor then you need to install it manually.
2. Change your Google DNS setting
