With the successful launch of GLO 4G LTE and MTN 4G LTE, Etisalat NG, one of Nigeria’s mobile network service providers, also decided to join the LTE Family by introducing its fast blazing Etisalat 4G LTE Network.
With the Etisalat 4G LTE, you are guaranteed to enjoy super-fast uninterrupted access to Streaming of high-quality videos, downloads, clear video calling, uploading and smooth access to your favorite social media networks, and lots more.
Unlike MTN Nigeria and Glo Nigeria that requires you to purchase a new 4G LTE SIM or swap your old SIM for a new 4G LTE SIM, Etisalat Nigeria offers something more unique. Subscribers of the mobile network do not need to go through those hassles.
All Etisalat Sims are Universal Subscriber Identity Module (USIM) types, which means the sims are 4G LTE compatible. There is no need to upgrade. All you need to do is to put your Etisalat SIM in a 4G enabled phone and you are on your way to enjoying a blazing and uninterrupted internet service. This is unlike MTN and Glo where you will need to take your SIM card to one of their shops to get it activated for 4G.
Unlike GLO NG (with its 4G LTE present in six states of Nigeria) and MTN NG (with its 4G LTE data plan available in all parts of Nigeria), Etisalat 4G LTE is presently available in selected cities of Lagos and Abuja( as at the time of writing this article). Here’s a list of the cities where the fast-blazing network has been launched- click here.
Not long after GLO NG introduced their 4G LTE data plan with 28(700MHz) Frequency, Etisalat decided to step up their game by increasing theirs to more than double to support 3(1800MHz) more old smartphones to ensure their customers satisfaction.
The Etisalat 4G LTE has a download speed of 28 MBps and an upload speed of 11 MBps which is fairly okay for heavy games download.
Before you purchase a new device, ensure that you check out the Band your smartphone supports in order to ensure compatibility with your Etisalat SIM. Make sure your smartphone runs on 4G LTE with Band 800/1800/2100/2600 MHz frequencies.
To get a complete list of the Etisalat 4G LTE data plans, simply Dial *200# and reply the prompt with 3. On your mobile phone screen, you will be presented with a display of various 4G data bundles, prices and validity periods.
