UPDATED : List Of States in Nigeria With Good 4G LTE Coverage For All Networks

It's no news that all telecom operators in Nigeria have released the 4G LTE network, which is a mobile communications standard intended to replace 3G, allowing wireless Internet access at a much higher speed. I think Smile network started this 4G trend in Nigeria, and seeing how it was welcomed by the public, other networks followed suit.

Now, MTN, Glo, 9mobile(Etisalat), Airtel and other internet service providers (ISP) like Smile, Spectra net, and Swift 4G also boasts of having a 4G network.

Tough you must buy a router, wifi, modem or 4G LTE supported device from some of the services mentioned above, and make sure the band of the device corresponds with that of your ISP.

One major problem is the poor and slow coverage of 4G LTE in Nigeria. While some states are still struggling to use the 3G network, some has already been covered with 4G LTE network from several operators in the country.

As a hint to buying a 4G SIM card, Mifi or Dongle, this article/post shows the states in Nigeria that have 4G network coverage from MTN-Visafone, Ntel, Glo, 9mobile, Smile 4G and others.
