mine is lte a, what does it mean
LTE-A (LTE-Advanced) or 4.75G as some call it.

It means your network provider is using 2 different bands together (band 3 and 20 or whatever network you on) to deliver speeds faster than 4GLTE which uses only one band.

Also what device you using?

I think you googled it...

The 20k as far as I know can get you a Huawei cat.6 MiFi or router.
It's 15k for the least one but prices depends on where you stay. In Owerri it is 18k for the Huawei MTN MiFi compared to Lagos at about 15k or 13k (if you can price it wella) at where I stay.
But if you can get a universal MiFi it'll be better.

65k can get you cat.18 MiFi with some features like MIMO and boosted LTE signals via band-switching I think but you'll have to unlock it before shipping it in.

Not really but most documented cases I've seen about LTE-A always comes from major cities and areas.


But if you stay in areas and getting 4GLTE+ or LTE-A (Samsung devices), using your current MiFi won't do as the speeds are higher than it (1Gbps downlink, 300Mbps uplink)

The phone's model depends on the SoC. The modem type is attached to the SoC.

So if you know your SoC type, you should be able to recognize the performance of your modem.

Most ISP (Internet Service Providers) only place their best networks in major cities where there are a lot of users.

Do you know that it was in 2019 that Gusa'u got 4G coverage while Sokoto city got 4G LTE this year lol.

Something that places like Warri and Benin had been enjoying since 2017 or so.

So yes, the best networks are in the major cities where there are lots of people.

That's the problem with the older generation.

An African man/woman who's older feels that admitting they don't know something is a "falling of hand". Especially in front of someone younger.

This attitude has led us up to this moment. E good as you mind your business. I smell change in the air.

Check the speeds column. You'll see the LTE type and category there as well as the upload/download speeds.

The download speeds is always bigger than the upload speeds

Lol.

Sorry. Just saw this.

My brother (not biological, we've known since sec. sch) who helps me with the web aspects of my blog, told me that I should be publishing everyday. I disagreed.

Good content needs research. Research, good research takes time.

I try to research these things because our marketers and YouTubers aren't telling us about them. The phone makers don't tell us either.

When they do, they just keep where we won't notice it. Many of us don't even what they mean sef. It is well.
