A few hours ago, MobilityArena blogged that MTN is giving their 4G LTE a spin but albeit only those they migrated from the erstwhile CDMA network, Visafone will be able take part in this trial. Well, I can confirm that MTN 4G network live in Ibadan. Let me tell you the story.
I commented on the post that on getting home I would give this a try with my own migrated Visafone to MTN line. Even though I still have about N13,000 out of the N30,000 I was credited on migrating some weeks back I couldn’t use the airtime for data, so I quickly migrated the the line to MTN pulse, bought 500 airtime and activated the N500 for 1GB plan.
Alas! It is working and working well! O’boy am I ecstatic! ??
MTN 4G network live: Screenshots
See screenshot of my phone screen and the two speedtest results I ran. Beginning of the end for the likes of Smile, Spectranet etc? As they say, only time will tell.
You don’t have an ex-Visafone line? Eeeya, sorry o… It will soon reach your turn! ?
PS: Mr Mo also confirms that MTN 4G network is live in Lagos on his ex-Visafone line. – Editor
