One of the downsides about having a relatively “reliable” internet connection is that I rarely restart my cable modem or router. When I finally had an issue, and restarted both I doing things online was noticeably faster. Apparently, the speed of our internet connection had been slowing down for weeks and we never noticed because the decline was so gradual. I had noticed that a few things seemed slower; but thought the issue was on the other end. Going forward, I’m going to try and remember too restart everything at least once a month.
