Jio 4G internet speed has reduced to new levels where it is slower than 3G networks. Sometimes websites don’t even open when using Jio 4G internet. Complaining to Jio is not of much use as there customer care is unreachable these days. Here are few steps which helps to increase your Jio 4G internet speed.
Check 4G Band
The main factor that determine your Jio 4G internet speed is which band you are getting your 4G LTE signal. Jio uses 850MHz, 1800MHz and 2300Mhz for its 4G LTE service. The speed is highest in 2300MHz while it is lowest in 850Mhz. To know which band you are getting signal you can use netvelocity app which can be download from here.
The band switches automatically as you move to better coverage areas. Using Netvelocity app you can find a spot in your home/office to find 1800MHz/2300Mhz signal in your home.
Use VPN service
Using VPN service to reroute your internet through VPN servers can improve your internet speed to some extend. There are many free VPN service apps available in playstore. You can download anyone of it and test it out yourself. When selecting VPN server in these apps try to select the nearest one(Singapore or Hong Kong).
Use IPv6 protocol
One of the main advantages of Jio 4G internet is support for IPv6 protocol. The enw protocol is much more efficient and less congested than older IPv4. However, not all sites support this protocol. Currently sites like Google, facebook has IPv6 support but not their apps.
You can switch to IPv6 protocol by going to Mobile Settings -> Access Point -> Jionet -> IP Protocol.
Please note that if you select IPv6 only some sites and app supporting only IPv4 won’t work in your phone.
Peak vs Non-Peak hours
From our experience Jio network is more congested at peak hours of 7PM to 10PM. However, during non-peak hours Jio 4G speed is more than enough to watch a full HD YouTube video. So I would suggest suing Jio for heavy download or video streaming during day time when network load is low.
