The most common cause of slow internet speed that comes after the weak network signals is your device’s configuration i.e. how your device is configured to connect to the internet. These configuration settings are managed by APN.
If you are experiencing slow internet speed on Jio, you need to check these APN settings on your phone. This tutorial will guide you how to set Jio APN settings manually and boost up your internet speed.
What is an APN?
An Access Point Name or APN is the name given to the settings that set up a connection to the gateway between your carrier’s cellular network and the public Internet. In simple words, APN settings give instructions to your phone to connect to your network.
APN is automatically configured on your phone by the service provider. You can also add it manually.
Note that changing the APN can improve your internet speed, but it can also mess up with your data connectivity if it is not configured accordingly to the network settings.
