You can easily boost your Airtel SIM internet speed in Uganda if you follow procedures shared below. Yes, using these simple tricks will help answer questions related to slow network, slow connection on mobile, 3g Simcard very slow, and etc. Before I started using this same procedure, I myself used to suffer from the same, but not anymore.
A slow internet means lazy loading when it comes to applications like YouTube, or visiting pages using the web browser. This happens on both mobile and computer since it is the sim card which helps access the network.
If you’ve upgraded from 3g to Airtel Uganda 4g simcard and still suffering from slow internet speeds, following these procedures below will help you enjoy fast access with faster downloads and uploads using the same provider.

Steps to increase Airtel Uganda internet speed

The above should help increase your connection speeds. You can use the same testing tool shared above and see the difference. I have always followed the same and found them helpful.
I stumbled upon a post which shared something to do with changing the access point name from default to custom. If you know how to play around with your mobile, you can go to settings, data settings, more settings, choose sim, select apn, new and enter these details.
Set APN to “airtelgprs.com”, Server to “*99#”, Authentication type to “PAP”, Protocol to “IPV4/6”, and Bearer to “LTE” or the available highest. Save changes, reboot your device and enjoy the fastest connections.
