When Will Nigerians Get Good Unlimited Internet Services In This Country? / Are Internet Services In Nigeria Really Another Big Joke? / How Do I Get Bandwidth Via SAT-3? (NITEL Wholesale Internet Services) (1) (2) (3) (4)
|Broadband Internet Services in Nigeria by chimanu2000(m): 8:02pm On Jun 06, 2005|
A friend and I got into this argument recently about the absence or otherwise of broadband services in Nigeria. I recently discovered one or two companies who claim to be offering it in the country. Has anyone made use of a broadband link here and what was the experience like?

Most ISPs in Nigeria have long claimed to offering broadband (on their web sites) even before NITEL's IP Wholesale was announced. Even one state in 2003 (I think its Taraba ) claimed it had built a broadband facility. Lie lie lie all.
I'm interested in learning how NITEL IP Wholesale works. I hope Delontorus who seem to have some knowledge of NITEL's services will give full detail.

MicroAccess, Wuse II, Abuja, they provide broadband..
|Re: Broadband Internet Services in Nigeria by jogego(m): 9:09pm On Jul 22, 2005|
I dont know if what you guys are talking about is broadband as in xdsl. This in the UK is provided at the telphone exchange level and once the exchange is enabled, if you are within a certain distance from the exchange, you can get broadband which means you can use your internet and the phone at the same time.
Is this the same kind of service being touted? Cos this obviously cannot be done without NITEL and the minimum speed for ADSL is 512
Any one need any clarity visit www.adslguide.org

There are various companies that have broadband services but the problem is that these guys are focused to companies not individual users so it costs an arm and a leg.
There is cyberspace, VGC communications, you have[b] Cobranet[/b] and a new company in town Netcom Africa which claims it's giving 3G. The only problem is the fact most of these guys cater for the rich living on the Island.

we are using adsl in my country, which provide you at least 512k/s access to the internet, we can even watch online movies. and the charges is queit cheap, 1200naira per month without time limit. i hope that Nigeria can bring this tech into. by that time, internet will be necessities for every nigerian.

|Re: Broadband Internet Services in Nigeria by Ladapo(m): 6:32pm On Mar 02, 2007|
Everyone, you need to go and find out about ITCLICK Networx.They specialise in Broadband Internet Access, Voice over IP, Wireless internet service etc. Though I am not much of a technical person, I have come in contact with a lot of people using this service provider and I have been made to understand that they offer some of the best Services around.
|Re: Broadband Internet Services in Nigeria by habumaks(m): 12:07pm On Mar 21, 2007|
There is one in Kano, Nigeria (Horizon Telecomm). First of its kind in the whole country.
|Re: Broadband Internet Services in Nigeria by Seun(m): 8:46am On Apr 05, 2007|
Is there any broadband ISP in Lagos apart from MyNetcom?
|Re: Broadband Internet Services in Nigeria by Ladapo(m): 5:50pm On Apr 05, 2007|
To Seun's question, it is only when you have not been to another man's farm that you claim that your father's farm is the biggest.
MyNetcom is okay, no doubt but I am telling Nairalnders that there are better ISP's in Nigeria. For instance, there is this ITClick Networx Limited that a lot of people(users) have been commending, especially people in V.I,lekki, Apapa, Ikeja, Abuja, magodo, Lagos island and Maryland. Apart from giving you peace of mind at a competitive price, they also give you good customer service and technical supports.
I have seen friends using them and I hope to get connected to them as soon as my business is up and running fully, I don't want anything that will give me headache, so I will go for ITClick.
|Re: Broadband Internet Services in Nigeria by Seun(m): 10:54pm On Apr 05, 2007|
My question was "Is there any broadband ISP in Lagos apart from MyNetcom?"
Your answer should simply have been: "Yes. ITClick Networx Limited is one". Are we fighting or something?
|Re: Broadband Internet Services in Nigeria by holyghost(m): 9:53pm On Apr 20, 2007|

|Re: Broadband Internet Services in Nigeria by Seun(m): 10:22pm On Apr 20, 2007|
Thanks. I keep forgetting the name of the main rival to MyNetcom. Is any ISP currently using fiber bandwidth?
|Re: Broadband Internet Services in Nigeria by holyghost(m): 9:17pm On Apr 21, 2007|
well only NITEL has fiber via SAT-3 4-now and they o'ly connect Big Firms (NO to ISP
though 21century has but it's not public
Glo, Mtn and VGC are doing there own but only for their use at the moment
but who needs Fiber speed for now? with the cost and our current use of internet Broadband V-SAT and Dail-up is doing well ( no be to send and recieve email and attachment. MY Broder(sic) no go Fiber yet
|Re: Broadband Internet Services in Nigeria by Seun(m): 5:12am On Apr 22, 2007|
If the fiber is available, then we should be allowed to use it. This monopolization of fiber, if true, is robbery.
|Re: Broadband Internet Services in Nigeria by holyghost(m): 5:45pm On Apr 22, 2007|
Mr. seun New tech's are always kept out of reach until all the cost of selling it is sure
|Re: Broadband Internet Services in Nigeria by Seun(m): 7:33pm On Apr 22, 2007|
I think it's because NITEL didn't buy those cables and they know nothing about ROI. Na to chop money dey know.
|Re: Broadband Internet Services in Nigeria by holyghost(m): 9:10pm On May 05, 2007|

|Re: Broadband Internet Services in Nigeria by holyghost(m): 10:05am On Aug 13, 2007|
Please place the price of this connection and test the speed with this site http://promos.mcafee.com/speedometer/test_0150.asp
and if you get an average of 10.8 KBps [/color]or as in [color=#990000]86.4 kbps [b][/b]note! the small b and the capital B are diffrent scales
you can test up to 10 times and take your average as the true reading here is my out put as pasted
if you beat mine then you have a good link form swift.
beat 10.8 KBps or as in 86.4 kbps and i will join you look at the time i did my test in the computer time bar in that snap shot so do your in the morning too my is constant even in the afternoon when internet use is high i still get this average
but in the night i get 11.7 KBps and i pay just =N=12. 000 monthly 24hours a day.
so who is losing?(cos am gaing money, Speed saving Time, +heavy download all at at time, and my Isp has been supporting me since 2003 till date and no stress attached. i even pay at the end of the month unlike other isp that force u to pay b4 u use.)
just have a look at the picture speed man
|Re: Broadband Internet Services in Nigeria by holyghost(m): 10:21am On Aug 13, 2007|

|Re: Broadband Internet Services in Nigeria by sabmack(m): 6:36pm On Oct 04, 2007|
Cobranet is most reliable here. I have been in IT/Internet installation for close to 15yrs and I know what I am talking about. As a Computer Engineer with wide experience, I can talk authoritatively on this.
|Re: Broadband Internet Services in Nigeria by Seun(m): 1:05pm On Nov 30, 2007|
