Is Instagram slow on your Phone? Learn how to fix it!
Instagram is a great way to share pictures and short videos. But, all too often Instagram seems to be running slow. Maybe you try and share a video of the seal pups frolicking nearby on the beach only for the app to freeze while uploading. Maybe you just want to scroll down your feed, but all of the images and videos are grayed out and you get a notice of a network error.
The problem probably isn’t with Instagram. The problem may actually be your phone’s Internet connection.
Why Instagram is Working so Slow for You
By default iOS and Android mobile phones and tablets use only one Internet connection at a time. You must either connect through Wi-Fi or through a mobile data connection. If your signal is weak or spotty for any reason, your device can lose little bits of information called packets. This results in uploads and downloads getting hung up or stopping entirely. This is why it can seem like nothing is happening, or why images don’t load and videos lag or are constantly buffering.
There may not be enough bandwidth available to complete your request as quickly as you would like. It’s a little like being caught in a traffic jam on the freeway.
