How to make android internet faster

We guaranteed that it will, at least make your internet a little bit faster than before.
1Clear cache on apps
First, you need to clear cache for any app installed on your phone.
Especially those apps that require or use internet connection.
What is cache?
Cache is actually a temporary storage location that store data, files and everything.
It supposed to make loading of any apps faster, because some of the files needed already stored locally as cache.
But overtime, this cache become bigger and bigger. It eat up space on your phone and make less space for your phone to operate comfortably.
Thus technically will also affect your phone performance including the interned speed.

All apps installed on your phone will be listed here.
Choose your most used apps first. Might be your browser, facebook, games and etc.
Tap on it to view its individual display.
Tap on the ‘Storage’
Then under ‘Storage’ display, there will be a button for ‘Clear cache’.
Tap on that button to clear cache.
Repeat on your other apps.
2Specify your internet speed: 3G, 4G or 5G
If your internet connection or internet speed always changing set it to static.
This thing usually happen when you’re in area with unstable connection, rural area.
Your signal constantly changing from E, H+ to 4G, depending which connection is stronger at that time.
If this happen to you, then you can change the default setting, which is ‘automatic’ to one that appeared most of the time on your phone.
For example, usually your signal is H+, but sometimes you can get 4G and sometimes it can also goes down to E.
To make your internet connection constant, choose H+ on your setting.
You can do this by visiting the: Setting > Wireless & network > Mobile network > Preferred network mode.
You can also force the higher connection (4G) and see if your phone can maintain that signal all the time.
3Remove unused widget and apps
What is widget on your phone?
Widget is an extension of application installed on our phone that can be interactive or do certain function.
Widget usually placed on home screen.
For example weather widget, clock, sticky note, google news and etc.
Most of the widget like the weather forecast and google news require internet connection.
It will use a portion of your internet and overall will slow down your internet connection.
The more widget we use, the slower our internet goes.
So, maybe you should reconsider about using it.
If that widget is not important, you can remove it.
It can be removed by long press / long tap on the widget till the trash bin icon appear, then drag the widget to that icon to remove it.
4Use internet booster apps
If you don’t mind, you can also try using internet booster apps.

7Force stop background activities of unused apps
If we always move between apps, any app that previously open will continue to run at the background.
It was programmed that way for our convenience switching from one apps to another.
But that convenience will cost us our phone performance, especially phone with ‘normal’ to small size of RAM.
Too much of this will cause our overall phone performance including our phone internet speed become slow.
