Can you really cure a slow Internet connection with a coffee filter?

According to the folks over at Unpluggd, absolutely. Hardware issues aside, one way to cure a laggy connection is to swipe the ends of all your cables with a coffee filter.

(A clean coffee filter, of course.)

Unpluggd explains why:

They're lint free and pick up any small particles or grime that might have been on the fingers of the last person to install the cable.

[There have] been numerous accounts of techs in the field who had a greasy lunch and the install directly after didn't run as smoothly as it should. Although this didn't fix our problem (we had a bad ethernet cable) he claimed its worked wonders for tons of other, now satisfied customers.
