I live in the UK and my Broadband internet connection is poor which means BBC's iPlayer, YouTube videos and website streaming keeps freezing. Also, general web browsing is slow.

Is there anything I can load onto my Mac to improve the speed of my internet connection and improve the quality of media viewed?

Any help gratefully received.

Are you running it through a wireless router. Has your broadband always been that slow.

Myself, I am finding performance problems with the iPlayer, when previously I was getting a fair speed. I found that turning the router off when not in use cooled the thing down (its quite humid and hot in the UK at the moment)

I am even considering putting a sealed antifreeze block on top of the thing to act as a heat sink
