How to fix Jio Speed Throttling Issue [Solutions]

Jio speed throttling problem is completely in contrast with what Jio promised to offer with 4G Preview Offer. Jio with such massive bandwidth & availability starts throttling speed for users engaged in heavy downloading even few users are complaining about speed cap issue in Jio 4g just after starting services for few days.

Jio Preview offer is known as truly unlimited service when it comes to fact of downloading over 4G LTE, HD Voice/Video calling & sending SMS. But, Jio seems to put cap in speed once users crosses some unknown limit.

According to Jio Customer care : “Preview offer is truly unlimited & no cap in speed or data usage. Problem persists in server from which you are downloading or streaming contents

Jio Speed Throttling Issue

Truth is when users downloading or streaming contents from same server & sitting in same place using Airtel 3G or Vodafone 3G or Idea 3G or even Reliance 3G, services are working fine without any further issue.

Jio Speed Throttling Issues

Issue 1:  Speed available in Google Play store & YouTube but rest of the sites give slow speed

Issue 2: Play Store loading slowly but YouTube working fine

Issue 3: Torrents are working fine but direct-downloading sites are providing pathetic speed !

Issue 4: Browsing Speed is OK but downloading speed throttling a lot

Issue 5: HostSpot speed across Smartphones is fine but Internet speed in PC/Mac is very slow for downloading

More issues are there, if you are having any other problems then add issues here.

There are so many cases are available of Jio 4G where users are facing speed cap problem. Jio Preview users are feeling being cheated in the name of Preview Offer at the end of the day.

Airtel also using Band 40 for 4G but Vodafone using Band 3 for same 4G with greater speed. Jio is intentionally capping speed in Band 3 & 5 and checking network load in Band 40. Company will, definitely, upgrade speed & remove throttling cap after commercial launch.

Well, Jio is yet to start commercial service & Customers care representatives can simply ignore you by stating Jio 4G is now in Beta mode & Jio team will fix issue soon.

  24. Could you please post some methods for speeding up PC connectivity? I’m using a JioFi M2S router with a jio SIM, both purchased from Reliance store. The computer downloads files at 4000 KBPS at nights (after 1:30AM) but then at daytime it downloads at 30-40 KBPS. I’m NOT moving to a different location, it’s the SAME Windows laptop, SAME router, and SAME SIM inserted in the router, but the speed is dramatically reduced in the daytime.

    Since there’s no “Android” involved (the M2S router connects to the Windows Laptop), I cannot use any “Apps”. Any idea how to maintain stable speed in my setup?

    1. Hi Songwriter,
      It’s common that day-time speed is significantly lower than night-time – This is because of high density in particular cell Band or Tower. Number of connected persons to particular tower or band is comparatively small at night which is why you face higher speed.
      Please check speed with your Android phone and note down the current speed if you found net speed on Android phone (Your or friends) is better then contact Jio support.
      For any further issue feel free to send a mail to
      We will help you to speed up PC and Net speed as much as possible.

  25. jio is worse like it come at like 12.00 am to 1.45 am and finish like 2.00 am or 5.00 am or 10.00 am in the morning why the fuck they create jio

  26. Hi ! I’m a user of Jio service.. I’m facing trouble with my jio internet speed..the speed in our area is very slow that we can’t use our data properly. If we are lucky then tge speed goes 30-40 kbps maximum either the speed stood at 7-11 kbps like now it’s showing 6kbps. I complained several times but everytime they are saying we will try we will see. Really will they? are anybody listening to us ? because of us the jio network became the India’s no 1 network service. so you’re job is to satisfy us satisfy our needs. so we request you to fix this issue..increase the speed to 500kbps atleast either we have to change our network service especially i can’t waste my money anymore on this service.
