I still remember that time when we had devices that had 2G mobile connections. They were too slow to tell the truth and were hardly good for anything in case we were too patient. Today there are still many people who use 2G networks to send and receive WhatsApp messages which after all is quite effective for that since as you know, 2G networks consume significantly less battery than a 3G or 4G, although the latter are considerably faster when it comes to browsing the web. Especially 4G.
Accelerating the Internet on mobile
It is necessary to take into account what would be the “navigation threshold”. So that you know and understand well what I’m trying to say, probably on many occasions you had a certain amount of MB to use during the day and once that amount was exceeded you could continue browsing as usual, right? The problem is that the connection became considerably slow because clearly we were on a 4G or 3G network and it went down until it reached 2G.
The first thing we are going to have to do to be able to accelerate our mobile Internet is precisely to look in detail at the current download and upload speed that we have, this can be effectively achieved with a very simple application known as Speedtest.net which you can download from the Google store by following this link.
After this we must understand that we have to know quite well what kind of plan we have, if we have an unlimited or limited plan, if it is 4G or 3G, etc. In turn, it must be taken into account that the telephones new with 5 GHz and not 2 Ghz bands, they will work faster as far as Internet browsing is concerned.
Make mobile internet faster
The way to improve the speed of the Internet on mobile is not really too complex, it is not about miracles or anything similar. The only thing we’re going to have to do is to see which applications we are currently using and close them, uninstall or configure them so that they do not consume too much connection, in this way that connection that they do not consume will not only allow us not to run out of mobile data so quickly, but we can also use it in other things.
One of the great examples that I can give you is Facebook, which is configured by default to constantly connect to the Internet to check the news, what we should do is simply configure so that this never does it and we save a lot with a simple app speed and above all, consumption.
How to know if my Internet is slow
Always it’s good to have an idea of how fast our internet is going, to be aware of what we have. Remember that even if you have 25 MB of connection and download at 3-4 MB it does not mean that you have to have the same upload speed, but much lower. The same happens with the topic of ping that I talked about earlier, no matter the connection speed, in many cases the ping remains the same.
For do a speed test that you have at the moment it is best to do it at Speedtest.net in case you want to do the same, but from your Android device you can download this application from the same people, but from the Play Store.
Keep in mind that in the case of the mobile device as you are by Wifi if you are too away from the router the speed will drop a lot And the test is not going to turn out very well to say, that is why we recommend either doing it near the Wifi signal or using a computer connected by ethernet to it.
Fix internet speed
You have to take into account something: The schedules. They are fundamental and it is that when people leave work which can be during the night or during noon and nap, it is possible that internet in general slows down because most people come in at exactly that time and that’s why that the internet is saturated To say the least, in addition to this if you add that your internet provider does not have a good infrastructure as happens in several countries, even worse.
Fix slow internet problem
The best thing you can do is, first of all go to the web www.speedtest.net/es and from here perform the speed test to really see what internet speed you have. You will have to do it a couple of times because it is clear that 100% accurate cannot be and no test will ever be.
What this test will do is check upload and download speedRemember that the upload speed is always considerably lower than the download speed, that’s normal, but warning just in case.
Perform the test at different times for about two or three days, in case the download speed gives you lower figures than the ones you have contracted, then you definitely have some kind of problem in your connection, it is always advisable in this matter to contact the company that provides you internet and tell them that internet is slow, that you have tried different tests and the download speed is quite poor, even that you downloaded files from several Premium servers and the speed is not the one you hired.
Tell him this more than anything because on many occasions the answer is the same as always “Those tests lie”, “They are useless, etc” all so as not to have to give the speed we hire.
nternet works too slow
The main reasons why the internet works very slow are the following:
- We have malware on the PC
- Problems with the Internet provider
- Hardware problem
- Bad Windows optimization
- Someone is using our network
Malware on the PC
One of the most common things that happens is that our browser is infected or we have malware on our PC. To solve this problem, we recommend that you do a deep analysis of your computer and that you also download a good antimalware so that you can completely clean your computer.
In any case, you should also check if you have too many extensions in the browser that can slow down your browsing.
Problems with the Internet provider
Much more to call and claim in this case you can not do.
Obviously there is always the possibility. You will have more possibilities if your PC has suffered any kind of hit recently or maybe it hasn’t been cleaned for a while and those things. You should take her to check.
Bad Windows optimization
One of the big problems we sometimes have is that the operating system is poorly optimized. When we have a low-resource computer, many people know how to confuse what is slow Internet with the slowness of the PC. Keep in mind that you can have the fastest Internet in the world, but if your computer is not, you cannot do miracles.
Someone is using our network
If you have WiFi you should be careful because obviously there may be people who take advantage of using different programs to guess the password and connect to your WiFi network. In this way they browse and download heavy files and you end up with a too slow internet. It is quite common for it to happen even on WiFi networks that have strong passwords among other things. In that case and if you are sure that the previous points are not, we recommend that you audit the WiFi network to know if someone is connected and if they actually have weak points.
