The Easiest Ways to Boost Your 4G Connection on Android

Experiencing a slow 4G connection on your smartphone? Don’t worry — here are a few different ways you can get a faster connection in no time.

There are many reasons that you might be experiencing a slow 4G connection. You could be over your data allowance for the month (unlimited plans technically have a cap on how much data you can use per month), which means that your carrier is “throttling,” or slowing, your connection. Maybe you’re in a bad service area and should switch to a different carrier that offers better coverage in your area. Or, maybe you’re simply using your Internet during peak usage hours, and that’s why you’re experiencing a slower connection. No matter the reason, try using Accelerate Internet to boost your connection:

This feature will help to speed up your Internet by closing apps that are running in the background of your phone. The apps on your phone are continuously refreshing as they receive new information, which can cause your Internet connection to seriously slow down. Closing these apps will not only help to boost your 4G connection when you’re not on Wi-Fi, but also to preserve your phone’s battery life.

In addition to closing background apps, there are some other ways that you can boost your 4G connection. The following are some other methods you should try before contacting your carrier or switching carriers altogether.

Delete Your App Cache

If you have a lot of apps installed on your device, then odds are, they’re storing a lot of temporary files that are slowing down your phone and taking up too much space. App developers are trying to remain competitive by offering more features in their apps, or turning their apps into “all-in-one” apps. Just look at the Facebook app, for example: you can shop, post live videos, browse the web, share photos, and etc.

Because of this, your apps can quickly bloat with files that you don’t really need, which can slow down your connection. Instead of manually deleting the junk files and cache for each app, use Quick Cleanup to remove all of these files from your phone at once. Click here to quickly remove cache and temporary files:

Use a Web Browser with an Ad Blocker

Sure, web advertisements can be annoying. But the main advantage to having a browser with an ad blocker is to speed up your Internet. Web pages that are overloaded with ads will seriously slow down your phone’s web page loading times, making it seem like you have a bad connection. An ad blocker may be just the thing you need to speed up your 4G connection.
