As we stay at home more than ever before our dependency on the internet has grown by many folds. If you can’t afford a WiFi connection and are totally dependent on mobile data it is important for your mobile network to be strong enough to download and upload files, offer smooth calling and video calling experience, and more. Is your mobile data patchy and that’s troubling your workflow? One solution is to port your mobile number to some other network.

First, try the following solutions if your mobile data is slow:

* Turn off and then on your mobile data option in the notification shade
* Switch off your device or put it on Airplane mode and then switch on
* Check if your mobile number needs to be recharged
* Check the speed of the network by either typing on Google or downloading the app itself. If the speed is slow contact your service provider.

Well, you can try these tips if you face network issues some times. But if the problem is more than frequent, porting the mobile number to some other network is a good idea.
