Etisalat 4G LTE Network Now In Nigeria by Reediano(m): 10:06am On Oct 08, 2016
Finally! Etisalat has also joined tge 4G LTE family. This is coming just few days after Glo launched theirs. So now, out of the big four telecom operators, MTN, Glo and Etisalat now supports 4G LTE network which leaves only Airtel in the GSM 3G network category.

Mtn was actually the first of the big four to launch it's 4G LTE network after it acquired Visafone last year, but now Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has re-framed the (1800Mhz) spectrum which now makes it possible for other telecom providers to launch their own 4G network even without owning a 4G spectrum.

At the moment, Glo currently offers the widest 4g network coverage as it's available in 9 cities while Mtn is available in 3 cities and Etisalat 4G network coverage is only available in some parts of Lagos at the moment. But the telc company has promised to expand his network coverage soon.

If you happen to be one of those whose smartphone isn't compatible with Glo and Etisalat 4g LTE, then you might want to check out Etisalat instead as it supports more older 4G LTE Smartphones compared to the rest. Another good thing is that all Etisalat sim cards are Universal Subscriber Identity Module (USIM) which means there is no need upgrading your sim card before you can enjoy the Etisalat 4g service.

While we wait on Airtel to release theirs, you currently have a different options to choose from. You can read more on the Glo 4g and Mtn or Visafone 4G.

I noticed the 4G signal on my phone this morning. I didn't know they have launched. I am enjoying the speed at my location at the moment though it fluctuates. Their speed used to be frustrating at my location before now.

Glo told me my phone, Tecno Phantom 5 is not supported at the moment. I realized I have to upgrade the Glo sim card too. I might not bother about Glo again if Etisalat can increase their coverage.

All these Nigerian 3.75G in the name of LTE. Those who are using this should confirm: can the 4G LTE in Nigeria reach a downlink peak of 20MBps and uplink of 10MBps?

If no, then we haven't even started.


In any case, this is a step in the right direction for the future of the Internet in Nigeria.

Everywhere I look I see news and claims telecom companies now provide 4G service. What I haven't seen so far is attestation to the benefits. My 3G connection is working perfectly apart from some days of bad connections.
If these companies want me to buy 4G data rather than 3G how would they convince me? Let's see if nairalanders can convince me to jump onboard especially as it entails buying new hardware.
