Improve Network Throughput
Via Command Prompt.

    This simple command prompt tweak simple unrestricts bandwidth and its stability. Best advice is to turn any network applications off and run a default test at speedtest.net and pingtest.net, save those results, do the tweak, then do it again. The findings were a very heartbeat choppy type net graph into a flat line solid connection, cable and fios obviously.

  1. First open the command prompt with run as administrator
  2. Then right click paste the following and hit enter:
    netsh int tcp show global

  3. A list of parameters and there settings will be displayed. The one that will be changed is Add-On Congestion Control Provider
  4. To change it from None To CTCP paste the following and hit enter:
    netsh int tcp set global congestionprovider=ctcp

  5. Finally reboot and run both tests at both websites again, enjoy
  6. To undo this process do step 5 and change the value to none
*NOTE* This works with MOST Internet Service Providers
