    There are over 26,000 reviews of the app. Read them. Don't bother making useless threads!

    Read the reviews of the app, instead of creating threads here

    Are you rooted? It looks like it just makes few tweaks to your TCP/IP settings. I don't know exactly what they do but if you're rooted it would be a fairly simple task to make a backup of your sysctl.conf file and then push the changes to the file yourself instead of using an app with ads and all that. Then you could run a comparison and if it doesn't help just restore the backup of the original file no harm done.

    Could you post a before and after comparison then for others who might be interested?

    So you tried it and it worked and then you uninstalled it? Why do you think it would harm your device? It looks like it just changes a few settings in your TCP stack so that wouldn't cause any hardware damage or anything. Are you concerned about the app? I doubt it would be on the play store for as long as it's been if there's anything fishy about it.

    I could see the difference only for a very few time
    the xda developers page they gave said that it might harm the device. that made me more cautious

    Most of this app are just fake.
    Beside this, look at the download and upload speeds - in my opinion low download speed is caused by overloaded transmitter. Too many people are using the internet in the same time and the speed is going down. Check speeds during night time and also for 3G connection

    Just don't do anything. Don't believe those YouTube videos 'make your Internet faster easy and free' it's just bs. If you want faster then upgrade your Internet.
