It really happens. I did nothing, I just wait for a minute, idle mode then after that it's back to normal connection.

mot particularly, i don't want things to get complicated . Server might be down , so the connection might be slow. I will wait until the problem is rectified and i will use the internet after the service is retained. Clearing the cache and temporary files particularly don't speed up the internet. It might improve a little bit performance of the system !!!

That's right, gunagohan, cache and temporary files do not affect the net as such. They just slow down the system that's all.

sometimes it even depends on your web browser. try using Mozilla Firefox, it really works faster.

It is usually ISP related problem when internet gets slow. But it can also be malware related, so I just make sure my anti/virus and anti-malware is on automatic. So when my connection is slow, I can be sure it is not computer related.

The slowness of an Internet connection can be due to factors not directly related to the computer. Examples include the number of Internet users in the same area, the number of web visitors, and problems with the Internet connection between the computer and the server. So I do not worry about it. Once I experienced a very slow connection with one email provider. Since there was no problem with other websites I was left wondering what the real reason could be. Later on I found out there was some form of attack on the server. The problem persisted for about two weeks.
