7 Tips To Make Internet Connection Faster On Your Phone

Are you constantly experiencing slow internet connection on your phone? You can make it 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.

First, you can check the speed of your connection here. Below are the seven (7) tips to make Internet faster on your smartphone.


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. One babe using very nice smartphone came to me and was very worried that her phone doesn't brows fast. In fact that she finds it difficult to upload photos on Facebook. She even suggested selling the phone thinking that it was a fault but when i collected the phone from her to check things out, I noticed this babe is on 2G network for many weeks and she wasn't even away that it can be changed. Then i switched her to 3G and the network connection improved drastically. You see, some few phone users are ignorant of this.

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 so why allow such apps to remain installed in 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

I could remember some years back when I was using the 10mb data allocation from MTN to browse on opera mini using Nokia Symbian phone. Surprisingly, that 10mb serves me for complete one week because i usually browse without images turned on.

So 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 beat 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)
