It is raining 4G LTE in Nigeria. Your head must be swimming now if you haven’t lost count of 4G LTE networks in the country now. Etisalat is the latest right after Glo a few days ago. Say hello to Etisalat Nigeria 4G LTE.
Etisalat Nigeria say their 4G LTE band is 1800 and the speed is between 25Mbps and 100Mbps. The network also says that, unlike with the competition, you do not need to swap your existing Etisalat SIM cards. Apparently, Etisalat launched with 4G-ready SIM cards in the country.
It looks like the Etisalat Nigeria 4G service hasn’t been activated at my location. When I put my SIM in a compatible phone, it doesn’t connect to the 4G network though Etisalat 4G network is listed as available when I do a manual network search.
However, other Etisalat subscribers across Lagos are reporting being able to connect. Have an Etisalat SIM and a 4G LTE smartphone that supports Etisalat Nigeria 4G frequency? Give it a shot and let us know how it goes.
