Turbo mode is activated if the internet connection is slow. It speeds up page loading and saves data. Page content including video is compressed on Yandex servers and then sent to the browser.
When Turbo mode is activated, the Turbo icon appears in the right part of the SmartBox.
Two thresholds determine when Turbo mode switches on and off:
- Turbo mode is enabled when connection speed falls below 128 Kbit/s, and remains on until the speed exceeds 512 Kbit/s.
When the connection speed exceeds 512 Kbit/s, Turbo automatically switches off (and the icon in the SmartBox disappears). Turbo mode remains off until the speed falls below 128 Kbit/s.Restriction. You can't adjust the speed thresholds for switching Turbo mode on and off.

Compressed video additionally saves up to 70% of traffic, but reduces the video quality. To view video without loss of quality, disable video compression for the tab or entirely.
If you want to disable video compression:
- Tap .
- Tap Turbo Mode.
- Turn off Video Compression.
