Reliance Jio has many users and more are waiting to jump on the bandwagon. But, not all users are happy with the speed offered by the network.
Prior to the launch of the Reliance Jio, the LYF smartphone users and the early Jio users were enjoying good 4G speed ranging from 10 to 20 Mbps. However, with the commercial availability of the Reliance Jio SIM cards from September 5, there is a heavy load on the servers. This has reduced the download and upload speed of the network in many places.
Here, we have listed out some possible solutions to increase the Reliance Jio speed for faster uploading and downloading. Take a look at the solutions from here. If your download speed is between 150 kbps and 500 kbps, you can try these tricks to get good speed.

Changing APN Settings
You can change the APN settings to increase the speed of your Reliance Jio network. To do so, you need to go to settings and choose Mobile networks option from there. Then, you must set preferred network type to LTE and go back. Choose Access Point Names (APN) and scroll down to find the APN protocol option. Over there, make it Ipv4/Ipv6. Then, select Bearer option and choose LTE and save all the settings. That's it.
For Rooted Phones
If you have a rooted Android phone, download 3G/4G Speed Optimizer APK on your phone and select network speed. There, you need to choose 12/28/7 - Max Speed (Low battery efficiency) option. Then, click on Apply Tweak and restart your phone.
Using VPN without Rooting
Download Snap VPN app from the Play Store. On opening the app, you will see a list of countries and you will get the signal strength next to each country. Choose the country with good strength and connect to it. Once the connection is established, check the speed by connecting to the internet.
Changing LTE Band
The Band 40 offers better speed while the Bands 3 and 5 provides better coverage. The Band 40 will give up to 50 Mbps of download speed based on the network quality and signal strength. You can change the LTE Band of your handset to Band 40 if your phone is based on Qualcomm and MediaTek chipsets. Take a look at the procedure from this link.
Use a Different Server Name
You can go to the APN settings and scroll down to the server section. Over there, type www.google.com and save the settings. Then, you can reconnect to the internet to check the speed.
The Android system uses a few files randomly and saves them for enhancing the performance of your system and apps. These files are called cache files. Jio has the ability to temporarily block users from downloading large contents due to the cache files. So, removing cache files can increase the Jio 4G speed a lot. Just go to Settings → Storage & USB → Under Internal Storage, tap on Cached data and hit clear cached data and confirm it by tapping on 'ok'.
Note: GizBot cannot guarantee that these will work for you as your location is a prime factor to get good internet speed.
