How to increase your data connection speed

This article would include some possible measures to boost or improve your data connection speed. There's nothing more frustrating than trying to use a phone in an area you know has cellular signal or a strong data connection only for it not to work. You know that feeling when webpages are slow to load, Facebook won't refresh, and messages keep failing to send; pure frustration.


There's a lot that goes into providing your phone with consistent voice and network connections, and there are bound to be issues during that process.

How to increase your data connection speed

Toggle Airplane Mode:

This method has been tested and found productive. Toggling your phone's connection is the quickest and easiest way to try and fix your signal flaws.

How to toggle Airplane Mode on Android: This is simply done by swiping down from the top of your screen to view the Quick Settings panel. Tap on the Airplane icon, then wait for your phone to completely disconnect from its Wi-Fi and cellular connections. It doesn't happen instantly, so give it a good 30 seconds before you tap on the Airplane Mode icon again.


How to toggle Airplane Mode on iPhone: Open Control Center -- iPhone X-series users can swipe down from the top-right corner, older iPhone models swipe up from the bottom of the screen -- and tap the Airplane Mode icon. It will turn orange when it's enabled. Again, wait up to a minute before turning it off.

Restarting Your Phone:

When the processor of your phone has lots of commands to execute, it indirectly slows the speed of your data connection. So to eliminate or reduce this effect, what you need to do is restart the phone, by so doing all background commands are killed.

How to restart an Android: Hold in the power button until the onscreen menu shows up and then select restart. If your phone doesn't offer a restart option, hold in the power button until the screen goes black and then turns back on.


How to restart an iPhone: If your iPhone has a home button you can hold in the sleep/wake button until the power slider is displayed. Drag the slider to the right. Once the device is turned off, press and hold the sleep/wake button until you see the Apple logo.

iPhone X-series users will need to press and hold the side button along with either the volume up or down button at the same time. Eventually the same power slider will show up; slide it to the right to turn off your phone. After the phone is powered off, hold in the side button until you see the Apple logo.

Remove your SIM

Another troubleshooting step to try is to remove and then place your SIM card back in your phone with the phone turned on. You'll need a SIM card tool -- usually included in your phone's box -- or an unfolded paperclip to get the SIM tray out of your phone.
