1. Boost Jio 4G Speed Using Correct APN Settings
It is recommended to put your Reliance JIO 4G SIM in first SIM Slot which supports 4G and set the sim card’s preferred network 4G. Now, if you have done this, the next basic thing comes is the APN setting. Jio automatically sets APN setting in the device but it’s not always the best. So, if you want to get best Reliance Jio 4G speed in your device, you need to set the fastest APN setting for Jio 4G SIM.
Go to Settings >> Mobile Networks >> Access Point Name (APN) Settings of Reliance Jio >> New APN. Now, use the following Reliance Jio 4G APN Setting to get the best connection speed:
|Settings Name||JIO APN Settings (1)||Jio 4G APN Settings (2)|
|MMS Proxy||Not Set||blank|
|MMS Port||Not Set||blank|
|MNC||857, 863 or 874||blank|
|Authentication Type||Not Set||Not Set|
|APN Protocol||IPv4/IPv6||WAP 2.0|
I suggest you to create 2 separate Jio Access Point Name Profiles because depending on your location, any of the both APN can work better. You can only know this by trying it manually.
2. Increase Jio 4G Speed by Changing Jio 4G LTE Network Band
4G LTE Network works in 3 different bands: Band 3 (1800Mhz), Band 5 (850Mhz) and Band 40 (2300Mhz). In India, there are three leading telecom companies which are providing 4G LTE service: Airtel, Vodafone and Jio. Airtel supports LTE 40, Vodafone supports Band 3 while Jio supports all three 4G LTE bands: 3, 5 and 40. Jio offers 50mbps (+/-) in band 40, 18mbps (+/-) in band 3 & 8(+/-) in band 5. It has been observed that:
- Best coverage: Band 5 > Band 3 > Band 40.
- Best speed: Band 40 > Band 3 > Band 5
While in other 4G LTE networks, you can’t change your 4G LTE band but in Jio, you can. But, Jio restricts its 4G LTE band depending upon your location. So, it has fixed a band for your area too but if you want to change it lets say for better speed or better coverage then you can perform following tweak:
