Reasons for Slow Internet on Your Smartphone

Smartphones have become a crucial part of human lives, and we all know that a smartphone without the Internet is nothing but a piece of garbage. The Internet has shortened the distance between people, and it has made us capable of connecting anyone at any time. But we often face problems while using the Internet on our smartphones.

It is very irritating when your phone’s Internet is slow, especially when you have an urgent piece of work to do. There are lots of reasons for being your smartphone’s internet slow, and before you look for the cure, you must know the roots of the problems. So, today we are going to discuss the causes of making the smartphone’s internet slow.

Let’s have a look at the reasons for being your smartphone’s internet slow.

Poor Position of Router

Most of the people use routers as a source of the Internet, and you must consider the router’s position if you are also one of them. We generally don’t think much when it comes to placing a router in our homes and placing it anywhere. But, this is one of the major reasons for having a problem with internet connectivity in your smartphones.

You should place your Wi-Fi router at a higher position and avoid putting it on the ground. Keep your router away from the metals, because metal emits the electromagnetic waves and that can be an obstacle for Wi-Fi connectivity.

Place your router nearer to the place where you stay the most; it is because the nearer you keep your smartphones to the router the higher signal your smartphone devices will get, and it will lead to a good internet connection.

Bad Network

If your internet source has a bad network connection, then you are going to face the problems. If you are using Wi-Fi, then make sure that your Wi-Fi should not be connected with a lot of devices. And if many people use your Wi-Fi, then you should increase the bandwidth of your Wi-Fi to get good internet experience.

If you are using a public Wi-Fi connection and facing problems, it is because many people use open internet connection and it affects the bandwidth of the source of the Internet. So, you can use your mobile data instead to avoid this problem at a public place.

Congested Wi-Fi

Most people don’t even know that like TV channels we have channels for Wi-Fi too. You can change your Wi-Fi channel whenever you want. Wi-Fi congestion is one of the biggest problems of slow Internet, it is because most of the people use their Wi-Fi on default channels and it causes the traffic on the channel that leads to slow Internet. So, to avoid this problem, you can switch your Wi-Fi channel and can get the best experience from your internet connection.

You should change your Wi-Fi channel, especially when you are living at a place where too many Wi-Fi connections are already installed. The more routers are installed at a place, the more traffic you are going to face while using the Internet on your smartphone. So, use other channels and get the best out of your Wi-Fi.

Wi-Fi Noise

Electronic devices generally emit the signals and interfere with the Wi-Fi signals that can slow down your Internet. You can fix this problem by changing the bandwidth of your router to the 5GHz band. Most of the electronic devices emit 2.4GHz bands that interfere with the Wi-Fi signal which also has a 2.4GHz band. But before you switch your Wi-Fi band to 5GHz, you should check if your smartphone supports 5GHz bandwidth, if it does, then you will get the best experience of using the Internet. The 5GHz band is not affected by any signal emitted by most electronic appliances.

Slow Phone

If you have a great Wi-Fi connection and it gives good internet speed in all the devices except on your phone, that means your phone is slow. Nowadays, mobile phones have become very advanced, and it gets updated every day. So, to fix the slow internet problem, you should buy a new advanced smartphone that has a good signal receiving technology in it.

These are some ways that can help you speed up your internet connectivity on your smartphone. If you are facing the same problems, then you must give it a try.
