As you already know, I am currently reviewing Smile’s 4G LTE service in Lagos. Word out is that a commercial launch is around the corner.
I usually don’t consume more than 6GB of internet data a month. On Smile’s 4G LTE link, I gulped 5GB in two days. No; it isn’t that my usage is unplanned. It is that certain tasks that used to be frustrating on a slower connection are now much more pleasurable. I mean, when one who used to do a little less than 1Mbps to 3Mbps is suddenly blessed with 7Mbps to 18Mbps, that is like being moved from a single lane road to a six-lane highway. Yes; speed kills. Or is it the wider road now?
