Airtel 4G LTE is being reported as live in Lagos

Since Airtel launched its 4G network in Ibadan in February 2018, the network’s subscribers in Lagos have been anticipating getting access as well. It looks like that is happening already.

A number of subscribers have reported being able to access and use Airtel 4G in Lagos after a SIM swap. Allegedly, Airtel 4G SIMs are now available in Las Gidi. We are yet to conform this in-house, but if you are in the vicinity of an Airtel service centre, it cannot hurt to pop in and ask.

In the meantime, remember the following details about Airtel Nigeria 4G service:

  1. It runs on the LTE Frequency Band 3(1800), which is one of the most popular 4G bands available
  2. Airtel is giving out a 4GB bonus data to everyone who activates 4G service.
  3. The 4GB bonus data is usable on 4G network only, so if you happen to live or work where there is no 4G coverage, you cannot use it on 3G or 2G.

  1. If this is true, that means I need to do a sim swap by visiting one of their office around to be able to enjoy this. I just hope the service will be strong in my area. The good news is that, the 4G LTE band is 3(1800) not like the 28(700) of Glo 4G LTE band that did not supported by many phones we have around.

  2. It was expected that the 4G should have reach Lagos, I was even surprise at first when it landed in Ibadan first.
