4G LTE is a mobile telecommunications technology that provide high speed data connectivity to data enabled devices. So if you thought the 3G network on your mobile device was fast, wait till you try browsing on a 4G mobile network.
A lot of people are excited about the 4G LTE network that was recently launched in Nigeria by MTN, GLO, ETISALAT and NTEL and in Ghana by and MTN, however not all devices will support 4G LTE. So when purchasing a new smart phone ask for a 4G LTE enabled smartphone that runs on band 800/1800/2100/2600MHz frequency. This is because GSM Networks operate LTE services on different band frequencies.
Below the supported band frequencies of GSM networks in Nigeria;1. NTEL supports band 3(1800) and 8(900)Mhz
2. MTN 4G supports band 7(2600MHz) and 20 (800MHz)
3. Glo 4G supports band 28 (700MHz)
4. Etisalat 4G supports LTE band 3 (1800)MHz5. Spectranet and Swift, supports band 40 (2300mhz)
6. Smile, supports band 20 (800mhz)
Therefore to use 4G LTE Network, you’ll need to buy a phone that supports the LTE Bands listed above.
I’m going to list SOME smartphones that can support 4G LTE network and can be purchase in the Nigerian or Ghanaian Market. If you interested in either of these phones hurry and get an NTEL, MTN, GLO or ETISALAT 4G LTE sim and start browsing on your Android, Blackberry, iPhone, PC or via Router.
