    I'm using 4g already but it's not from mtn nor Etisalat.. It's from smile. And it's pretty fast . Since they're giving away free GB I had to register to their network

    I saw glo 4g plans on their hsi port for the same price as their 3g counterparts but I'm not sure if the service has launched

    I agree with you. That rate is discouraging

  • Unknown, October 9, 2016 @ 3:08 pm Reply

    So because of 4g lte that's why MTN want to siphon our pockets. Every other network is way cheaper for the same service. MTN is a big thief.

    This article is misleading. MTN 4g is not available in all states. I'm serving in ekiti and I'm in the capital ADO and it's not there. Yes both my sim and phone is/are 4g capable.

    The 4G is indeed super fast in all aspects of browsing. But the regular data subscription still works perfectly, I don't think it's necessary to do the 4G data sub.

  • Unknown, November 30, 2016 @ 6:17 pm Reply

    With the rate presented above… I think the 4G service is best described as Exploitation..
    Period… And I will say a big NO to it
