To boost your phone’s internet speed, clear cache on your phone. There are tools on Google Play Store that will help you with that, but users can manually go through individual app folders and clear the cache.

Next up is to keep the phone from running unnecessarily in the background. Go through your phone’s apps carefully and delete the ones that are not useful. This will consume less power and data due to a default setting in some phones, which permits background data usage. If an app is important to have, go to the settings and find the app to limit background data consumption.
