Reliance jio 4G was launched with huge promises – one of them being the fastest internet speed among all telecom providers in India. For the first days, when the number of users was very small, the Jio Internet speeds were amazing but with times the things started changing. These days many Jio users are complaining about very slow net speed. Reliance Jio is putting in a lot of effort to make the data network more robust and the speeds fast and reliable. Sometimes, it’s just the Jio network issue which causes the slow internet speed and there isn’t much we can do about it but at other times, the problem can also be on the user’s end. Sometimes small tweeks in our phone settings can dramatically increase the Jio 4G internet speed. In this post, we are sharing 5 such ultimate tips and tricks that will help you boost the internet speed of your Reliance Jio 4G phone.
How to Check Current Internet Speed of your Jio 4G
Follow the following steps to get details of maximum available 4g speed in your current location:
- Install Internet Speed Meter lite from Google Play Store

Method 1: Change APN settings
Change the APN Settings as shown below.

Method 2: Use a VPN
VPN stands for Virtual Private Network which allows users to get access to Geo-restricted contents, Government restricted websites and it helps to unblock speed, unblocks torrents.
Besides increasing download speed, VPN also protects your identity, keep browsing & transactions information out of reach of hacker & malicious persons as well. Download Snap VPN app from the Google Play Store. Once you have installed the app connect to Singapore or France server. This should improve your downloading speed but not browsing speed.
Method 3: Use a fast browser
If you are on default browser or using chrome for downloading large files, then you can try something different.
I will advice to go with UC browser as it gives pretty fast speed while surfing as well as downloading files larger than 1~2 GB.
Method 4: Keep your Phone Junk Free
I will strongly recommend you to install Clean Master App and run it every 2-3 days.
It not only cleans the junk and cache files from your phone and make more memory available for processing but it also keeps your phone and data secure.
