Hope you remember the message airtel sent early December last year (2013) telling airtel users using Blackberry subscription plan for their devices that they will stop extending the service to non-bb device, this caused chaos among airtel users where many people shows their feeling on social networking site most especially Facebook, promising airtel to drop their sim in Airtel office door step if they do as they said while some are optimistic ( am an example ) on continuation of the service, many try their possible best to exhaust their data bundle before the date Airtel said they will stop the service but yet I continue using my data normally as i use it before, the day came and gone yet the stuff is working properly but …

Nobody even cares to know what the reason might be for not stopping the Blackberry plan on non-blackberry devices again, Is it different treats from people Or they are kidding in first place, who cares?

Yeah, the day came and gone yet the stuff is working properly but… , the but is that ; Since i exhausted my previous 6gb for 3months airtel blackberry plan and subscribe for another one, the stuff has being a crap, so frustrating ! the internet connection was so so slow that i regret at times for using the plan and even owning a airtel sim card, but did I have a choice in this country of ours where internet data plan is like buying a Gold. During the time, my smartphone beccome useless because i cant even connect to internet or chat with the slow internet speed talk less of connecting it to my Pc, i only do so in midnight. It blazes like fires during midnight but don’t know what really cause the slow issh in daylight, But after a stressful day full of lectures, will i still still stay awake during the time just to chat or browse when i suppose to be resting , then i told myself this must stop ! Either airtel rectify it or i switch to a better plan.

To cut the story short, Lately when my subscription is almost due, i found a solution on how to fix the airtel slow internet connection. To me, is so annoying but i believe is a good news also, for the sake of dudes which might also be experiencing this slow internet speed.

How To Fix Airtel Slow Internet Connection

The thing is simple, as you all know that not all places have 3G service, but did you notice that airtel automatically switch the service from 3G to 2G network on your smartphone or Pc ( using a modem dongle ), this is caused by a weak 3G signal,

How will i know if my network is in 3G or 2G ; is simple, with modem the light that blink in your modem is not for decoration but an indicator, green , blue and aqua for 2G, 3G and 3.5G respectively. But with mobile phones, the 2G, 3G and 3.5G shows but in some devices like my own, it shows E , H and H+ instead.

To make your internet connection faster, then you have to make the network stable and normal .

To Fix Airtel Slow Internet Connection On Smartphones.

  • Go to the settings panel
  • Scroll to your mobile network settings ( is under wireless & network in most phones )
  • Then click on 3G service and select WCDMA only.
  • Now your phone will avoid all the 2G craps and connect with 3G only.

To Fix Airtel Slow Internet Connection On PC ( Using Modem ).

  • Open your modem network app to connect
  • After connected, click on Tools in the top menu
  • Click on Options > Network Type , you will see the network type settings and registration mode, now change the network type to WCDMA only.
  • In the same panel, click on registration mode , select the manual search and register mode and save.

Now you will feel the internet speed.

Before the airtel slow internet connection crap, my hostel is a 3G enable area and i connect to internet both daylight and midnight with a fast network speed but after the stuff, my mobile phone and modem rarely bring 2G, but thank God with this tweak, i rectify it and enjoy my 3G stability and H+ network is back without being fluctuating.

Before i publish this article, have tried it on more than 5 different non-blackberry devices and computers and it works very well. If after all this, you still experience a slow internet connection, then its your area network that is bad, not the non-blackberry device stuff.
