Redmi 10C Has Very Bad Internet Access, Especially 4G by ModCaller: 11:18am On Feb 07, 2023
My MTN Internet access is absolutely horrible with my redmi 10C. I'm not kidding. 4G is even worse than 3G.

I updated from android 11 to 12 and it got even worse. I can't see myself ever buying Xiaomi product again.

This is just too frustrating. It's not the network, it's the phone. I have confirmed that.

I wish there is a solution that doesn't involve using custom ROM.

This post that I just made above took two attempts to get posted and my network bar was full as you can see in the screenshot.

Service has been very bad on MTN for weeks and that screenshot you posted of your nairaland post not working first time is clearly not even network related.
Go to your access point settings and change your APN protocol to IPV4

The error was network access related. That's the error my browser gives if there is no network. Look at the attached screenshot. I got that error trying to upload this comment with my data turned off.

Your suggestion didn't solve the problems. It seemed to worsen it.

I don’t think it has anything to do with your phone.


Why don’t you try other ISPs or, better yet, insert the SIM into another phone and test?

If I reboot the phone I will get momentary boost in internet access for some minutes.

Everything is pointing at the phone. It seems the phone only uses a fraction of the internet access available. As you can see my network bars are full.

There’s no such thing.


Try the SIM in another phone first

Network bars being full doesn't translate to fast internet services. Go to your battery, click on details and show us the screenshot.

If you care about Internet access, please don't touch Redmi

Test it with other sim cards as advised. I once add a similar issue; mine was about calls. It turned out that the culprit was the sim card. A new Airtel sim card ohh.

And as equally pointed out, network bar doesn't translate into network strength. That bar is largely a scam. @atheistandproud has a good topic on this at inquisitiveuniverse.com —where you will learn everything Smartphone, in an easy to understand words.

The Scientheosopher called and I'm here to oblige.

For starters, I would like to know your network signal strength in dBm.

If you don't know how to check it, it's very easy.

Enter settings
Enter about phone
Go to All specs
Scroll down to status
Enter SIM status

Screenshot what you see.

Signal strength seems fair.

Try again at peak hours between 11 to 4 this afternoon and let's see the results.

As you can see, my network reception is much better than yours.

To understand dBm, [see here](https://www.google.com/amp/s/inquisitiveuniverse.com/2022/12/24/how-to-check-signal-strength-on-android-miui/)

There's nothing wrong with your phone. Na MTN.

Just hold your power button till your phone restarts (forced restart) and check improvements.

I've told him that MTN is the problem but he obviously doesn't want to listen.

I'm having almost a similar issue with you. I just got my redmi 11s. It seems like the network goes on and off for every other thing in the phone except WhatsApp. Like today I could not use my twitter or even browse since morning, it was this evening the network was restored for all apps in my device,but my WhatsApp and Facebook was working very fine. I don't know if there's a setting I need to do, I'm getting tired already

it's not possible,the phones don't have issues with network,as long as it recognizes the sim, it's fine, it might be a software or settings problem
