Nowadays every Indian is going after Jio SIM and trying hard to get new SIM from reliance store. However, they are being disappointed due to slow internet speed. There are several post and videos to speed up your Jio internet but they are absolutely waste of time and promotion of their apps. I’m not saying that below tip will work 100% for you but I checked few of phones and observed better speed. But before telling you about these tricks, will give you some background on LTE band.
About 4G band:
Please see below band information using by Indian service providers.]
Airtel offers 4G on Band 40 (2300MHz)
Vodafone offers 4G on Band 5 (850Mhz)
Reliance Jio offers 4G on Band 3, Band 5, and Band 40.
Before we move ahead, it is important to know the difference in these three bands and how they work.
Best coverage: Band 5 > Band 3 > Band 40.
Best speed: Band 40 > Band 3 > Band 5
In that case, you will get best connection speed in the Band 5 then your speed will not be as good and if you are on Band 40 then you will get good speed but coverage will be poor.
Please be informed your phone automatically switches between bands according to the strength of the signal at a certain location, that’s why Reliance Jio work in good speed at certain areas than poor at others.
You can fix the LTE band to get better Jio speed by doing below changes.
Trick 1: Select band 40 manually
- To increase speed, follow these steps
- Dial *#*#4636#*#*
- Select phone information
- Select "Set preferred network type"
- Select LTE Only
For Qualcomm processor
Install Shortcut Master (Lite) app from Play Store.-à Menu > Search -à Type "Service Menu" or "Engineering Mode" and search à Open if found and access to change LTE bands
For MediaTek processor
Install MTK Engineering Mode à Run app à Select 'MTK Settings' à Select 'BandMode' àSelect SIM slot where you have put your Jio SIM à Select 'LTE mode' à Select band 40 for best speed or band 5 for best coverage à Save settings & reboot mobile to activate changes.
Note: These methods may or may not work even if you have smartphones with these processors. We suggest you to try these on your own risk.
I would suggest, note down your current setting before making changes manually. If you see any network issue with above changes so you can reset your settings. I hope you understand that one band work for good speed and other one is being used for better coverage.
