  12. Bearer should be set to LTE only and nothing else.

  15. Tap on Save, restart your device, and once it’s done. You’re good to go with the seamless speed that was promised by Reliance Jio.

Common FAQs for Reliance JIO APN settings

#1 Do you need to set your phone any specific settings in order to access the internet?

For Android phones, the following settings should be carried out –

  1. SIM Card to be placed in LTE enables SIM Slot only.
  2. You should opt Jio for using the internet
  3. Choose Jio network to route the internet on your device
  4. Make sure mobile data is on and data limit is off

For the iPhone, just keep the data ‘ON’. Your device is smart enough to take care of the rest. You’ve made a good choice 😉

#2 Is signal strength a deciding factor for good internet speeds?

A stronger signal indicates better signal strength and not necessarily signal quality. Internet speed is a function of various parameters, like the website being accessed, number of users in parallel. You might get good internet speeds even at the low signal strength, depending on these parameters.

  • Streaming HD videos of music
  • Uploading/downloading large files
  • Syncing in background
  • Apps that require a continuous internet connection
  • Online games

MVNO type stands for a Mobile Virtual Network Operator(MVNO), Virtual Network Operator(VNO), or Mobile Other Licensed Operator(MOLO). It is a wireless communication service provider that doesn’t actually own a mobile network.

In case you find the speed to be slow, you can look for these high usage factors and opt to pause it for high speed.
