When Reliance jio rolled out, it was available only on specific phones like Lyf & people were getting good speed in the range of 10-20 Mbps. I have even seen someone on Facebook who had downloaded 73 TB data just within few days of launch! Now due to heavy load on servers, download & upload speed has reduced in some areas. So we are going to share 5 tricks to increase Reliance Jio 4G speed for fast downloading & uploading.
If you are getting very low speed in the range of 150-500 KBps while downloading, then you should try out following tricks one by one.

Note : All tricks have been taken from YouTube videos, we can not claim that they will 100% work for you.
Use these methods only if you are getting low speed (below 500 KBps). There’s no risk involved here, so you can try them out to check if speed is really increasing. At the max, these tricks won’t work for you. At any time, you can revert back to original settings

Using VPN (No root required)
- Download ‘Snap VPN‘ from play store. It’s available free of cost.
- After opening, you will see the list of countries. In front on each, signal strength is given.
- Select the country which has good strength & tap on connect (poor strength = less speed)
- It might not connect in first attempt, keep trying.
- Once the connection is established, try downloading some files to check downloading speed.

Boost Jio Download Speed with ADM
Have you ever used IDM (internet download manager) on PC? It drastically improves speed by splitting large files into small pieces. But unfortunately, this great software is not available for android. Don’t worry! We have new trick which can do this task for you.
- Install ADM app in your device. Good news! It doesn’t require root permission.
- They have an in-built browser which is not so fancy, so better is to avoid it.
- Open chrome or any browser & search for the file you want to download.
- Copy the url & open ADM.
- At top right corner, you will find + sign. Click on it & past the url.
- Hit start button & see the magic!
- When I tried this trick, I got whooping speed of 1~2 MBps even when there was poor Jio network in my area. Speed was fluctuating a bit but never went below 800 KBps.
Try Changing Browser
If you are on default browser or using chrome for downloading large files, then you might want to try something different.
I will advice to go with UC browser as it gives pretty fast speed while surfing as well as downloading files larger than 1~2 GB.
New Trick for Mediatek Chipset
- Open phone dialer.
- Type *#*#3646633#*#* & one menu will be visible.
- Search for ‘mobile data service preferred’ & click on OK.
- Download some files to check speed.
Trick to Increase Jio Speed with DAP
What’s DAP? It’s Download Accelerator Plus app which is still popular on windows platform. Now they support android OS too & it’s really working great. I noticed significant speed improvement after testing some file through UC browser & DAP.
- Install DAP from here (4.71 MB in size).
- Search the file that you want to download on any browser.
- Long tap on download link & click on ‘copy link address’.
- Once you do this, DAP will open automatically.
- Hit on start button & get super fast speed on Jio.
