What is Adaptive Wi-Fi?

Previously known as Smart Network switching, enabling the Adaptive Wi-Fi feature allows your network to automatically switch between Wi-Fi and mobile data automatically to maintain a stable network connection.
  
○ If your Wi-Fi signal becomes weak or unreliable, your phone will switch to mobile data automatically.
○ Wi-Fi will turn on automatically when you're within range of Wi-Fi networks you use frequently.        

 

Older devices might show options about Smart Network switching instead of Adaptive Wifi. For more information on Smart Network Switching click here

Note: Enabling Adaptive Wi-Fi may incur additional fees to your service provider.
