    1: One of the major problems with BSNL Dataone Broadband connection is the DNS servers they provide by default. Most of the time they are very slow and sometimes they fail to respond. Open up the network connection profile and edit TCP/IP settings. In the DNS server address fields, specify the following DNS server addresses: 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220
    Disconnect the connection and then connect again. You are done.

    This specifies third party DNS servers which are significantly faster than BSNL Dataone's DNS servers.

    2: Firefox users can use FlashBlock extension to prevent downloading of Flash content by default, thereby significantly speeding up browsing experience. This is more of a passive tip in that reduces data usage to improve your overall experience.

    3: You can try to increase your broadband bandwidth tweaking the TCP/IP parameters. The process is simplified by using TCPOptimizer, a free tool.

    It helped me, your mileage may vary.:p

    what i have done to increase speeds - install dns proxy like acrylic proxy. then add dns whichever is faster - either dns advantage /open dns/google public dns. this acrlic proxy will better cache the dns records.

    use the noscript addon with adblock plus addon so that major ads and other dangerous/3rd party scripts are blocked.

    use tcp/ip optimizer to optimise the connection (for xp) . not needed for win7 as it is optimized already.

    if ur still not satisfied upgrade to a faster connection ;)
