# Will this increase my Internet speed if speed limit others?

If in your router settings(tp-link) I will limit the Internet speed through the "bandwidth Control" all devices except my laptop, that will increase my Internet speed?
P/S Test, but it did not understand

depends on what kind of load these all devices give the router.
If they don't download torrents without a break, the difference do not see it.
If you're watching movies online, and someone from the other device is watching a movie online, the speed will be divided by both.
But increasing the speed can not be just to place the priorities, who in the first place if both pump.
if you have 2 computers and the speed is 10mbps, the second computer I was limited to 1mbps, that's how it works:
If you're watching movies online, and someone from the other device is watching a movie online, the speed will be divided by both.

what to do on the second computer?
if you at the same time with two computers downloading the info, from you will have up to 10 Mbps, the second to 1 Mbps, depending on how the download goes well - Jeff28 commented on June 10th 19 at 16:41
1) No limits: the speed will be shared equally, that is, both 5мбпс
2) the second limitation to 1мбпс: the first 9мбпс
Or I not so understand? - Bianka.Von commented on June 10th 19 at 16:44
if there are no restrictions, it will not be exactly 5 Mbps. The speed depends on many factors - what Starosty gives a resource where you shake the size of packs, how many threads, continuously shakes or ahead of schedule.
That is to say that there will be 50% each - not. The router is not so smart to prioritize, perfect. To put a limit on the speed channel easier than to make a 10% priority. - Jeff28 commented on June 10th 19 at 16:47

Hi,
Of course, will increase.

For example, the website gives the video file at a speed of 10 Mbps. You have a 10 Mbps channel. You imagine doing 9 Mbps, and 1 Mbps neighbor. In the end, you will download much faster. But if the site gives 1 Mbyte, then you will swing at the same speed. I hope it became clear that the download speed depends not only on your channel but also on the speed with which the external resource gives your content.

On large files channel separation is noticeable in the small, almost none.
Reading the response I want to clarify.

I hope it is clear that after reading your "it will increase my Internet speed" I understood it as "the download speed of content from the Internet BETWEEN your router and your computer", that is inside your local network. In this segment you can influence the speed.

If you read and understood literally, the "Internet speed" is the magnitude (width) of a communication channel between your router and your ISP, and I hope it is clear that at this speed you can not influence. - Bianka.Von commented on June 10th 19 at 16:40

Will this increase my Internet speed if speed limit others?

If we talk about home use - not likely to change, a lot depends on how to use a second computer.
In General, there are three options -
1. The speed will not change
2. The speed will increase
3. The speed will decrease.

But the most probable is the first.

Much better would be if you announce the task - what exactly is the problem at the moment, and what you need to achieve.
if my neighbors download from torrents, my speed because falls? I just even a movie can not watch in normal quality, and when they're not shaking, you like the rules. That is, if I solve their problem if they cut the rate? - Bianka.Von commented on June 10th 19 at 16:42
The neighbors connected to your router? - Jeff28 commented on June 10th 19 at 16:45
Yes , roommates - Bianka.Von commented on June 10th 19 at 16:48
