1. Clear the Cache of Your Android Phone
Clearing the cache data of your Android phone may also increase the internet speed in your mobile phone. When your cache memory is full it slows down your Android phone which returns the slow internet speed. So, you should keep the cache of your phone clear for a faster mobile experience.
Well, it’s a good habit to clear the overall cache of all the apps on your phone to speed up the phone. But, in terms of increasing internet speed, you should especially clear your browser’s cache.
There are two ways to clear the cache of your web browser on Android; you can either clear the cache from storage settings or from directly inside the browser. To clear cache via settings, just go to Android phone settings » Apps, select the app, and then go to Storage and tap on the Clear Cache option.
To clear your Chrome browser’s cache on Android, open the browser, tap on the three vertical dots, and navigate to History » Clear browsing data. Here, select the Cached images and files option and tap the Clear data option.
2. Uninstall the Useless Apps From Your Mobile
Lots of apps in your Android phone may degrade your phone’s speed which also causes the slow internet speed. So, you should remove all the unnecessary apps from your phone. Only keep the apps that are important.
However, there are many default apps that come preinstalled in the smartphone, and uninstalling those apps becomes a bit difficult. I have written a detailed guide on “how to remove default apps from Android” that you should definitely check.
3. Use Ad-Blocker
However, ads are important because they aware you of something new and interesting around you but sometimes they can slow down the speed of a webpage you are browsing. So, if you are facing issues with your internet speed while browsing the internet, you can use ad-blockers to restrict showing ads.
There are plenty of browsers available on the internet where you can browse things easily without seeing any ads on web pages. There are many ad blockers available on the Google Play Store that you can install on your Android phone.
4. Choose the Preferred Network to the 4G/5G
As you all know 4G and 5G speeds are higher than 3G. So, if your phone supports 5G, you should primarily buy a 5G data pack, and still after buying the 5G pack you’re not getting good internet speed, it’s possible that your preferred network selection is 3G or below. You can change it to 5G/4G in your Android mobile settings.
Go to your Android phone’s Network settings, choose the SIM card you are using to access the internet, and then set your carrier or preferred network either to auto or if set manually, only select a 4G or 5G network.
5. Enable Text Mode in Your Browser
If you don’t need images and you’re surfing only for text, you can enable the text mode in your browser by disabling images. It will have a very positive impact on internet speed in your mobile. We have previously written an article on how to browse text-only mode on Android phones.
Before you start browsing in text-only mode, remember that pictures hold an important place in any article or blog post. Some specific kinds of articles such as how-to guides etc. may become very difficult to understand if you choose to browse in text-only mode in your web browser.
6. Select a Fast Web Browser
The web browser of your Android mobile phone also plays a very important role in increasing your internet speed. There are lots of Android web browsers available on Play Store but you should choose only a fast web browser.
