I was profesonal swimmer for 16years so for faster swimming you need lots of things.First minimum 4-5km every day swimming,exercise in the gym for speed,endurance and strainght :-)

1 mile has 1.6 km so around 2,5 - 3miles per training.Try to get in swimming condition and try to swim in all styles (frrestyle,backstroke,breststroke and.butterfly) mix them like 0,5 - 1mile freestyle and next combine styles and do sets(3-4) of 0,25miles combination
Hope to be of sme help

Practising your strokes and doing the correct techniques. Also try doing different sets with a set time for example 10 x 25m freestyle in 25 seconds or whatever you feel comfortable then keep dropping it to challenge yourself. Done swimming most of my life so know quite a bit so happy to help
