Airtel Starts 4G LTE in Some Locations in Nigeria, How To Get Activated for Airtel 4G

The much awaited Airtel 4G LTE is finally here in Nigeria and now I can hear myself happy say “its about damn time”. You'd definitely agree with me that Airtel and 9Mobile 4G LTE bands are what most subscribers from these two networks have been eargerly waiting for for a long time now, especially since after MTN and Glo launched their own 4GLTE services.

Fortunately enough for Airtel, they beat 9mobile to it (launching 4GLTE services) and my guess is because of the current issues that are going on at 9mobile, lead to some unforeseen delays in the deployment of the 9Mobile 4GLTE network.

Following an unexpected recent appearance of Airtel 4GLTE network on some Airtel users' smartphones, it is now live and certain that the city of Ibadan, Osun, and of course Lagos will now have the Airtel's much-awaited 4GLTE network. There are still unconfirmed reports about the deployment and availability of Airtel 4GLTE in Kano, Abuja, and PHC.

What is Airtel 4GLTE Band?

It might interest you know that the Airtel is running on band 3, at a frequency of  (1800MHz). Which is just perfect because it is a frequency that compatible with almost all 4G enabled smartphones, unlike that of Glo that runs on band 28.

Airtel 4G Speed Test


At the launch event today, Airtel 4G speed was tested on Speedtest in Ibadan, the download speed was 28.45 Mbps and upload was 8.77 Mbps. As you can see in the above screenshot.
