Solution two: change the preferred network


Your phone is designed to make switches to the strongest network that is available nearby. So, most of the time when the 3G network coverage is not that great your phone automatically switches to the slower 2G or Edge based connection. This leads to the decrease in your internet speeds.

You can force your device to be on the 3G only or WCDMA mode only. This will ensure you to remain connected to the 3G network even when the signal strength is too less. Please, make a note that, in some areas where there is NO 3G connectivity you’ll end up losing all the mobile signals, compromising with not only data but also calls and SMSes.

Simply go to the ‘preferred mobile network’ option located under the Network settings of your phone and choose WCDMA or 3G only mode.

Solution three: Use a VPN service


Opera Max

Opera Max is a VPN client app that enables you to connect to its VPN network and therefore allowing you to browse the Internet at much higher speeds. You also get the feature of anonymity, where you can anonymously surf the web without being tracked by setting the location of your VPN to some other country’s server. The data compression feature of the Opera Max app will also improve the data optimization and therefore boost your 3G connection speeds.

Final Words


These are some of the best ‘working’ methods for boosting your slow 3G network. IF you are using Windows PC then must use these best android emulators which are worth to installing and help to speed up your connection. You can always remove some unnecessary apps and clear the phone’s cache data to gain some additional bandwidth, but these steps are temporary.
