You can make your phone internet connection faster and improve the speed by applying the simple tips i will reveal to you on this article.
Although most times slow internet connection is caused by the network providers due to poor equipment and stunted availability of the networking technology in some locations but you have your own part to play in order to boost internet connection. Below are the seven tips to make Internet faster on your smartphone.
7 Ways To Make Internet Connection Faster
1. Set Your Network Connection to 3G or 4G
It is not news that 4G and 3G network modes are much faster than EDGE and 2G networks mode.
So to speed up your data connection speed, you need to change your preferred network connection to 3G, WCDMA or 4G instead of GSM or EDGE
2. Uninstall Unnecessary Apps
Are you aware that many Android applications uses internet connection to work and to make things worst, some uses the Internet in background even when you aren’t using the app. These apps drags the internet with other more useful apps which you constantly use on your phone.
I advise you to uninstall all the apps you don’t normally use because they don’t only slows the Internet connection but also makes your phone’s performance slow as well as zapping your data unknowingly.
3. Clear the Cache in Your SmartPhone
This one might be controversial because in most cases, cache boosts internet speed especially with web browser apps, WhatsApp and Facebook. This is because these apps don’t need to reload those saved data once you launch them thereby saving the time internet requires on your phone for processing information. But in some rare cases, cache can work alternatively so you might consider clearing cache memory.
Interestingly, clearing cache helps boost your phone performance as well as giving you more phone memory space especially if you are always short on device internal storage. To clear cache, go to phone Settings > applications > select apps > tap on clear cache. Note that this step might be slightly different from phones with different OS versions.
4. Activate Text only Mode in the Browser
If you are in a situation that demands you must read something online with very low data size available om your phone, just enable “text only mode” and restrict background data on your android phone. You will see the magic of what 5MB can do.
Apart from that, when you disable images from your web browser, your internet connection speed increases drastically but the browsing experience is not that cool. So if you are don’t have problems browsing without images displaying or if you have very little data on your phone, apply this simple trick; otherwise, browse normally with images and enjoy what you are reading.
5. Use a Faster Web Browser on Your Phone
The web browser you’re using plays a major role in enhancing the overall internet connection speed in your phone. There are many fast web browser available on Playstore for you to download and make use of.
You can try out Opera Mini, UC Browser, Google Chrome and Puffin Browser. They are arguably the most popular web browsers out there so try using them for browsing.
6. Install Internet Speed Boosting App
There are many internet speed boosting apps on Playstore. Try downloading any of them to help in boosting internet connection.
7. Turn Off and On Your Internet Connection
Lastly, to speed up your phone internet connection speed, toggle the data switch to ON and OF it. Alternatively, enable “flight mode” and disable it again after 3 seconds. As weird as it sounds, this is one of the best working remedy to combat slow internet connection.
Once you apply this trick, you should experience an improved connection but remember all the above tips doesn’t apply to people staying in areas with no network signal at all (if there is such places).
