hey guys, so im a foreigner but have been here for six years now, and have tried most of the mentioned services, eventually you get problems with all. however recently i bought my new xbox one , was playing through my HYnet mtn router ( though the speed and ping sucks ) but at least i was connected. Now i changed to Spectranet 4G LTE S5E6PHLCS9 , and what i discover is that my xbox one won't even detect my route !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i am trying to find a solution for this, so i would appreciate it if anyone shares his opinion or solution. Till now I know that GSM works fine but LTE doesn't . though the internet speed with Spectranet is great. I am at wuse 2 area.

As a gamer in Africa, part of the major issues we face is slow internet speed (Which is also costing us a small fortune). Since the launch of 9ineGames on the 9th of September 2013, we have been searching for avenues to cushion the effects of these issues and this has lead us to do some serious research on the top ISP that can be used for gaming online within Nigeria, here are some suggestions on the top ISP’s in Nigeria that are especially good for gamers.

5. Visafone
Connection type- mifi magic-3G
Visafone falls under our top 5 connections but not a very good option for real gamers, Visafone has coverage in major parts of Nigeria but its 3G network is only available in a few parts of the country, example Lagos might have a better speed than other states. The only good thing about Visafone is its 3g and fairly good for gaming online.

4. Mobitel
Connection type - Wimax 4G
Mobitel is another powerful connection for gaming in Nigerian and runs a 4g connectivity. Mobitel in recent times use to be our top 3 best network but over the time it failed to keep up with the competition. I personally used motel once to play online and it’s more like a fair result (considering they have a little fan base, I excepted them to have a faster speed for gaming).

3. MTN Hynet
Connection type -Wimax 4g
This connection is well known and needs no further introduction in Nigeria, MTN hynet works perfectly fine with gaming online but not really as good in terms of services in some certain locations. The good thing about MTN is it works in most parts of the country unlike the previous service on the list above. Hynet is sometimes faster than Spectranet or swift in some locations and mtn has proven to be good for gaming in Nigeria and it is the best advisable option for people outside Lagos (due to the lack of swift or spectranet) in those states.

2. Spectranet Limited
Connection type - Wimax 4G
Spectranet is also an ISP company in Lagos owned by Indians with a much cheaper plan unlike swift network, with a speed limit of 512kbs, 1mbps and 2mbps but our focus will be on 2mbps which is the fastest and best for gaming, although they have their own down time which may lead to connection failure/disconnections making gaming less interesting.
They recently introduced their latest ISP technology 4G LTE(long term evolution) which is believed to be faster, effective and efficient than its previous technology (WIMAX 4G) gaming on Spectranet is a good deal based on their unlimited plan but best effective at night starting around 1am-5am

1. Swift Networks:

Connection type -Wimax 4G
Swift networks is our number one spot for gamers who want to have a good feel or experience in the online gaming world. It’s very affordable and fast with a boost of up to 2mbps (but fails to reach that peek during the day) the best time to play games are late at night (as it works really fast) the only down side about swift networks is there number of down times. Recently, swift also acquired direct on pc which gave them the full force needed to boost their services. For me personally, swift is good for online gaming but the failure to introduce unlimited plans again has made gaming really expensive for does interested in using the network

Please Don’t forget to drop Your comments!! I would love to know what you think.*(Watch Out For Updates Next Moth)
