Smartphones have installed tons applications that you use on daily basis. Also, there are some other apps on your phone you may rarely use them or very less often. Many expert suggests these type of apps may have unwanted permissions and can access your private data also they can upload your data to their servers while running in the background. This results low internet speed. To boost internet speed either you can uninstall the app completely from your phone or prevent using background data.

To disable background data, open smartphone's Settings > Manage Apps > Choose an App > Restrict Data Usage. You can do this for selected apps.

5. Use Lite Apps

Lite apps don't increase your internet speed, however, you may feel it like you're having a good internet speed. Usually, lite apps are made to work flawlessly with less powered CPU and low internet speed.

Nowadays, every popular app has its lite version and Google has Go version such as Facebook Lite, Google Go, Maps Go, Messenger Go, PUBG Lite, etc.

6. Clear Cache & Apps Data to Improve Internet Speed

Sometimes, an app or browsers may contain very old data which lower down to poor app performance and websites do not load quickly. To clear applications data goto manage apps from settings and then choose your browser app and clear cache & apps data.

7. Stop Auto Update

In some apps like Google play store auto update feature has enabled by default which update your installed apps without your information. The same thing happens with WhatsApp, it downloads the images or other media files as you connect to internet.

To disable auto update open play store > settings > Auto update apps > don't auto update. And read this article stop auto media downloads in WhatsApp

Additional Tip: Consider using VPN Service is a VPN & DNS service maintained by Cloudflare server. The basic use of the app is to browse privately and maintain privacy. You can download it your Android & iOS smartphone directly from stores. To ensure privacy and give lag-free experience (ping problems), connects to the nearest DNS server available or you can consider it as a public DNS resolver which not only maintains privacy but also boosts the internet speed.

A major difference is found while surfing as it is dedicated to that purpose. Make sure you don't confuse with the VPN service that is also available in the app. DNS is different from the VPN service. If you want to watch content that is not available in your country then you can switch on a VPN and enjoy it.


I either restart my device or turn on flight mode for 30 seconds to solve the slow internet issue. To be sure, run an internet speed test again after applying these settings and see the difference.
