    Re: Download Speed is very slow in Windows 8 Phone.

    please note that downloading speed is not the function of your device but the sevice provider you are using
    You are browseing very good because the webpages are compressed by the mobile browsers but when it comes to downloading it is not compressed
    To get an effective download upgrade to 3g data plans

    1.You can also make sure that you are on 3g network to ensure decent download speeds

    Re: Download Speed is very slow in Windows 8 Phone.

    First check the network settings and call the customercare whether they had restricted the speed.
    If not so clear cache and cookies and then restart the Phone.
    Now get in to good network place and open browser and surf net.
    It will be good............

    some service bearers limit the speed after some data usage exceeds.........
    hope you may get out of the problem......

    Re: Download Speed is very slow in Windows 8 Phone.

    The downloading speed depend on the internet service provider and you can not increase internet speed .

    The speed depend on the service you are using. If you are using low speed service then you will get low speed.

    If you are using broadband service then you will get good speed.

    If you are having broadband connection and still not getting speed then you should ask your internet service provider.

    If you are having a good antivirus then scan your computer for virus .

    You should also delete temporary internet files regularly .

    2. then delete the temp files from your mobile
    3. Don't play any game or update any app via downloading.

    Hello friend..

    I think you windows phone may be virus effective so you can't be access the high speed net..

    Firstly you install the antivirus then scan the phone if any virus found antivirus remove it..

    Secondly you contact the customer care of your service provider it may be something wrong in the internet setting. so you contact the customer care..

    All the Best!!

    Re: Download Speed is very slow in Windows 8 Phone.

    Follow these steps to resolve your issue,

    1:There might be several reasons behind your issue!

    Some of those are,

    1:When using an internet connection, your live tiles will consume some amount of internet connection in order to update the lives coverages on your start screen

    2:Well, you can turn off your live tiles

    3:If you turn off the live tiles then your internet connection speed may increase!

    4:So do the above steps in order to resolve your issue

    5:Well, some internet service providers place some conditions like 3g+2g speed only when browsing speed

    6:So use only 3G connection in order to increase your internet connection speed during downloading as well as uploading!

    That's it over!

    Re: Download Speed is very slow in Windows 8 Phone.

    The connecting speed, browsing speed and the upload/download speed vary and it can never be the same due
    to technical reasons. most of the companies advertise showing the connecting speed which is fast, but when it comes to upload/download things are totally different.

    In a close end device like a mobile handset, there is very little to do unlike computers where tweaking the hardware and software is possible. When Apps control your browsing and the rest of internet activity, there is very little that can be done.

    Anyway delete browser cache, clean the handset from unwanted files and programs to create space. Keep the device virus free, Use 3G connectivity with bigger voucher plans.

    Thats almost all that can be done.

    Re: Download Speed is very slow in Windows 8 Phone.

    Hiii

    don't worry the download speed is very slow not because of windows 8

    this is due to weak signal strength

    so use those network whose signal strength is strong enough in your locality

    or the best solution is switch to 3G connection, its very fast


    hope this will help you
    thankyou

    Re: Download Speed is very slow in Windows 8 Phone.

    Hii Friend,
    The reason for the slow download speed in Windows 8 Phone may be any of the following:-

    >>Due to virus effect

    >>The server may be very busy

    >>The system need update.

    According to me you should switch to the 3G if you are using 2G that will give your better speed.

    You should scan your device properly.

    Update your system.

    Hope your problem will be resolved.

    Re: Download Speed is very slow in Windows 8 Phone.

    Dear friend,

    If you are getting low download speed in Windows 8, then its not the problem of your Windows 8 Phone.

    Actually, it is the problem of your Telecom Operator of which you are using Internet.

    However, if you are running internet through 2G, then internet would be really slow.

    But from 3G you may get good speed.

    So, switch your Network settings to 3G mode, to get good downloading speed.
