If you still do not use 4G network in Nigeria, then you have not experienced the swift power of browsing. If I’m to mention the operators that offer 4G internet network in Nigeria, I’ll be adding only but these three to the list: Visafone (powered by MTN), Ntel and Smile. I use spectranet, and some of you will belief Spectranet should be added to the list alongside Swift, but I omitted them on purpose, because neither Spectranet nor Swift sells SIM cards alone without a modem or router. But the other three I mentioned above can be purchased alone without even buying a modem or router and be used in any smartphone.
Cities with 4G Internet Coverage in Nigeria
You want to go into the 4G network world, and you are still in doubt if your state, or city is 4G supported? Then I have prepared for you a list that will see you through.
Below are the cities that are covered by 4G in Nigeria as at time of this post.
Ntel being the latest 4G operators are still trying to cover a whole lot of cities, but as at now, they have the smallest coverage in the country as they cover just the two states below.
Though we cannot still give Ntel a hundred percent coverage in Lagos as they cover just major places, so try to check out for your area before you purchase their sim cards or product.
Unlike MTN which covers almost every place in Nigeria if not every place. Its subsidiary, Visafone does not. Visafone 4G is only available in the seven locations below.
- Port Harcourt
As at the time of this post, Smile covers more places over every other 4G operator in Nigeria, beating Visafone by just one. Visafone 4G is only available in the eight locations below:
- Port Harcourt
- Benin City
For now, 4G internet in Nigeria is limited to just some places, but in the nearest time future, the 4G internet network will spread rapidly to almost everywhere in Nigeria.
So before you go to purchase any of these sim cards or their networks, you should firstly consult this list to guide you.
