there is nothing like the best isp in Nigeria.. just the ones that serve your own immidiate needs at a particular location.


Op, the problem with internet in Nigeria has always been infrastructure.
Nobody is willing you sink his money into Nigeria. Only wired internet is cheap in most advanced countries. Wireless is still expensive. And Nigeria doesn't have infrastructure to support wired internet like LAN or fiber optics.

Companies with a lot of money who can invest heavily (e.g MTN Airtel and to some extent glo,) are already satisfied with current state of things where they can give shitty services and still make lot of money.. who would wanna change that, really?


All small companies like spectranet, swift etc don't have enough to invest in communication infrascture and banks won't loan them the same amount of money they would loan the like MTN because of risks.


Either way, Nigeria is bleeped when it comes to Internet unless we can get some of the big boys in developed countries like TMobile, verizon, etc to come and invest here which I doubt they want to do.

Only solutions now is cheaper internet from somewhere else.
If internet infrastructure somehow gets cheap. Which I doubt will ever happen. Or
We have more projects like Tesla starlink.. if elon doesnt abandon the project like most other projects, it looks really promising.

But dude gets bored easily so he might do it half asses as usual.
very good response my brother. Just like the way solar energy business is booming in Nigeria, is there a way to make small ISP business to flourish? This is because internet services is big problem in Nigeria just like energy.

If you live anywhere within Ogun state. Try I-World networks. Unlimited is achievable at a very decent price

Am glad that people are beginning to realise how serious this issue is, I created a thread earlier about this Why should data be capped?

Unlimited is not unlimited and it's so annoying as a student I would have to wait till in the night before i can access the internet to get stuff done and it's really affecting me badly.

If MTN Glo Etisalat or Airtel could give us true unlimited I would be happy but they don't want to do it and I don't know why which is giving way for this smaller company to cheat us.....I swear am fed up who I offend way them born me for this country?


Even 60gb of data wouldn't be enough for a week, it would get exhausted because of the nature of the kind of stuff I do makes one less productive. We keep spending money on data everyday, this is day light robbery!

Just Google Ntel website. Their service is available in Lagos and Abuja.
You can also contact them via Twitter. You subscribe using quickteller.

Lack of infrastructure, really. UK, for instance, built fibre on telephone in every house, while Nigeria, I hear, never had up to 100k landlines.

Below is what 12k buys, unlimited.
How can you compare UK to Nigeria?
Installation of optic fibre has been difficult because of lack of appropriate plan by Nigerian government.

Bottom line, NCC has to be more involved, anyway, I have tagged them on this write-up on Twitter. It might not make any difference but if we all take turns at throwing jabs at them maybe one-day they will want to do eye-service as most of their manner is in this country with the top organizations trying to save face. I could only tag a few of the ISPs can I have any more of their Twitter handles please.

Yes, this is a serious issue in Nigeria, and it's holding the country back. As someone who is in IT and primarily works remotely, I have tried it a couple of times when I visit Naija, and it was not the best experience. I am usually there for 2 weeks so I just buy so much data on my MTN/GLO lines, and using 4G/LTE btw. I have to join meetings in the US via webex on some days and it's usually a pain. I try not to do work related stuff that's data intensive due to the lag associated to mobile connection. Majority of the people still access the internet via data on their mobile phones, and there are no hard-wired connections, so Work from Home (WFH) options are very limited. On the entertainment side it's the same issue. Watching Netflix/YoutubeTV on your TV there is just painful! Here all the rooms are hard-wired cat5, so we just plug it into the TV or just go wirelsss if hard-wired is not possible. All these problems are really hampering Nigeria's development.

Greatzeus:

Bros,I believe they use 4g in London right? We have 4g in Nigeria too,so how come they got this kind of speed there when we get 2-6Mps here in Nigeria on 4g?
Are there different 4g or what? Or did our ISP intentionally reduce the speed or something?
I don't get it at all.
Nigeria uses bend-down 4g
