The 5 Best Internet Booster Apps for Android

It’s true! Slow internet is a bummer!

Picture this:

You’re ready to watch a YouTube video clip and you wait for about 3 seconds for it to load. It plays fine for about 30 seconds or so. Then suddenly it stops, buffers, and plays every 2 seconds. The 2-minute video now becomes an excruciating 5-minute nightmare.

Then…

We start to lose interest in what we’re doing because of this frequent internet interruption. But why do we experience this even if we are subscribed to an expensive and high-Mbps plan?

We’ll find ourselves asking “Why is the internet so slow?”

Even though our connection is determined by our Internet Service Provider (ISP),  there will be times when the connection fluctuates. This could be due to incorrect router configuration, signal hindrances, and/or malware infection. But getting low bandwidths, especially if you are connected to a sharing connection such as WiFi, is normal.

Now:

There are other issues that could affect your connection too. These are low RAM, multiple applications running in the background that are using your internet connection, full internal storage, and junk files.

Internet Booster & Optimizer promises to enhance your internet browsing experience by automatically putting your browser as the top priority on your Android system. It optimizes commands to get the most out of your ISP’s internet speed.

Although you can optimize your device’s command manually, it takes a while to do. Internet Booster & Optimizer takes care of all these technicalities once you install the app. This works for rooted and unrooted phone and 2g/3g/4g/LTE connections. It cleans your phone’s RAM, clears caches, and pauses unnecessary processes.

After installation, you will be asked to verify whether your Android device is rooted or not. It also has an ‘I Don’t Know’ selection, for those who aren’t sure. It then asks you to tap the center button to start optimizing your device and launches your browser.

It does have a disclaimer which states that the functionalities of this app may vary in your phone’s Android version and settings. It could also limit your maximum transmission unit if you are connected to a router.

Connection Stabilizer Booster works with both rooted and unrooted Android phones. This app ensures that your connection is flawless and stable.

It has 2 options; Active Keep Alive and Active Reconnect.

Active Keep Alive keeps your connection going even if there are periods of inactivity. It stabilizes the traffic between your phone and your ISP servers.

It also prioritizes your Android device to keep your internet experience at its peak. Use this feature if your connection is slow or if it freezes from time to time.

Active Reconnect, on the other hand, restores your connection if it drops. This usually happens when there is a large volume of users.

You can get ‘kicked out’ of the connection causing you to be disconnected from the server. Active Reconnect makes sure that, when this happens, you will be automatically back “in.”

Connection Stabilizer Booster also has a Force Connect feature where you can push your way through congested networks.

Weak signal is no match for Network Signal Booster. It has a simple user interface that is very user-friendly. This apps instantly boosts your connection once launched and you can enjoy streaming movies or video clips on apps or on your browser. It works on both cellular data or WiFi connection.

I have tried this internet booster in Google Chrome to stream a movie and it really does wonders. Once the movie was loaded, it automatically played without buffering or lagging even if I skipped to the middle of the movie. It then took about 2 seconds to adjust and continue on with the streaming.

Upon start-up, you’ll need to give it a few minutes to connect. Network Signal Booster refreshes your current connection by switching it off temporarily and then turning it back on. Once it’s done, you can enjoy a faster connection.

  1. How about a program that uses phone hardware to act as a literal signal amplifyer – if possible, one that you can turn on off or control the gain so as to save battery. And something that comes at modest cost with a code that you pay once and own it, including if you restore the phone and reload it. Pitty I wasnt a programmer.

  2. Hi Rose.

    Thanks for the useful info. Unfortunately, the link to the first app in your list isn’t working. I realize this was posted several months ago, but would you mind providing the publisher or the website for the Internet Booster & Optimizer app you were referring to here? I can’t seem to find one in the Google Play Store with the same icon shown in your post.

    Thanks in advance for your help!
