Ntel UNLIMITED Internet - WORTH IT? by Stanley08(m): 8:54am On May 23, 2016
For those who don't know Ntel, it's a telecommunications company that provides 4G LTE-A Internet at 'arguably' affordable rates. I guess the idea of this thread is to focus on the 'arguably'.

-They are currently only active in Abuja but Lagos and PH are very close, according to their customer care, lagos is only a few days away-

I did some simulations and calculations of how much you how much data you can pull using Ntel.
Realistically and Mathematically. Keeping in mind that you'll use Ntel for purely downloading purposes. I really don't think you need to consider Ntel if you don't do alot of downloading or huge data demanding activities online anyways. As the Reception can't backshift to 3G or 2G. U are also going to need a 4G capable device be it a phone or 4G USB/MiFi modem.

Let me also add by saying, i am in NO WAY affiliated to Ntel. I'm neither a staff nor any marketer of any form, I'm just an I.T Guy and a 'Concerned Citizen' lol.

Read below and tell me what you think.

Realistically:
Let's say the reception where u stay and/or work isn't so good, you still get around 5MB/s give or take. At the rate, u are doing 300MB/min and then 18GB/hr. Since we are being realistic, considering network fluctuations and what not. Realistically, we'll say you are doing 15GB/hr.

And Realistically, you get to download 12 hrs in a day. Let's take work days for example when u go to work and u leave ur downloads to run in the background of ur computer while u work, even when u go for lunch break, it's still on ur table, in the office downloading. So 8am to 5pm. 9hrs.
U get home at 7pm and continue. 3 more hours. 10pm u are tired u want to turn off ur computer and sleep (Realistically). That's our 12hr mark.

15GB x 12 = 180GB (1 day)
In 3 days = 180 x 3 = 540GB.
In 7 days = 180 x 7 = 1260GB.
In 1 month = 180 x 30 = 5400GB.

Let's just approximate it and chalk it down to uncertainty or other factors

Realistically...
500GB for 3 days.
1.2TB in 1 week.
5TB in 1 month.

Mathematically:
You download for 24hrs a day and your network is perfect so steady 10MB/s. Let's assume it's a weekend or u on leave or you are jobless (lol). There's sha nothing stopping you from taking it personal because you want to must use it to the maximum. That and we being mathematical smiley You leave ur downloads to run even while you asleep lol (i know I've done it many times - IDM scheduler FTW!)
Which means u get 600MB/min and 36GB/hr
For a day, mathematically and without factors
36GB x 24 = 864GB/day
In 3 days = 864GB x 3 = 2.6 TB
In 7 days = 864GB x 7 = 6.05TB
In 1 month = 864GB x 30 = 25.9TB

So... Even taking the mathematical scenario and mixing some real life factors like nepa and i don't know.. Anything else... I'll approximate also just less aggressively.

Mathematically...
2.5TB in 3 days.
6TB in 1 week.
25TB in 1 month.

So at least for the first 3 months when u get TRULY UNLIMITED and no fair usage to hold you back.

1K2 for 3 days
3K for 1 week
10K for 1 month

Considering what you can 'possibly' gain...
Is it expensive?

- Share if you think my calculations and simulations are Genius. smiley cool
- Like if you think I'm Crazy! tongue

If you feel it's both, i think we are on the same side anyways. Loool. cheesy

@Stanley08, l duff ma hat for your permutations and the screenshots.

Ntel had better roll out their nation wide plans fast before the Voodoo networks come onboard and crash the party with their evil data plans

Lol. Voodoo network. Wats ur own Location? They are only in Abuja now. But Lagos is next and PH shortly after. Then I'm guessing places like Ibadan, Onitsha and Calabar won't be far behind.

Lol ok. U not in naija i guess.. Well, hopefully it hasn't gone to shxt by then. This is Nigeria afterall.

I know right? It will still get better. But for someone like me that has burned 6K of data in less than 3 weeks.
Airtel 3K5 for 9GB (stopped working tho) and 2K5 for 4.5GB. And the speed is less than 1MB/s.

I rather pay 10K. For unlimited. And 5MB/s+

Firstly, 10Mbps is 1.25MBps.

And they offer up to 230Mbps. But we all know that's theoretical speed. Real world speed will be somewhere south half of that.

U just saw a speed test of 44Mbps and earlier 75Mbps. Why are you saying they offer 10Mbps? Dude.

A 2TB external HDD
A 500GB external HDD

So i guess i have like 3.8TB storage.

I also have my phone memory card 32GB and my music torchlight phone 16GB memory card lmao :p
