Internet latency is the delay that is caused during various internet actions that are performed. This delay depends upon the processing speed of the client's computer and the processing speed of the internet server that is used.
So it follows that a network connection with a high latency is a poorer internet connection with respect to the one with lower latency. High latency (lag) is also caused by the extreme usage of a particular infrastructure.
High latency results in choking in the bandwidth connection. The bandwidth for a certain internet usage is fixed. High latency due to a humungous amount of data packets results in blockade in the bandwidth and thus delays result as a consequence.
Information from the computers is sent in the from of data packages and can be optimized
It takes too long for the websites to open, too long to reach the desired destination, too long to acquire the desired information even through simple browsing. High latency is also caused by heavy content download.
In order to optimize latency, it is essential to restrict the downloading in the background. It is also a good step to delete or de-activate those applications that continuously use internet such as Microsoft Update. Or these applications can be configured to ask for permission before using the internet. There are very little applications available nowadays to help reduce latency.
One such Software is Latency Optimizer
This software as the name suggests helps to optimize latency. It does that with the help of its various tools. It also possesses the ability of keeping check on the internet connection to detect high latency and to take the necessary and prompt action that is required to be taken to provide the user with maximum internet experience!
