4G LTE Network in Nigeria

When trying to describe smartphone data networks, 3G, 4G, and LTE are the normal words you might have heard. This refers to the generation of network technology.
The third generation network, known as the 3G name, is the oldest technology group. 4G is the fourth generation of the data network and LTE stands for Long Term Evolution. The basic difference between them is the network speed. When you want to buy a smartphone , it is possible that the previous models do not support the latest data network technology. It is important to choose a model that supports a data rate according to your needs.
Long Term Evolution (LTE), also known as 4G LTE, is a standard set for high-speed wireless communication for smartphones, tablets, netbooks, laptops, and wireless devices. 4G technology is the successor to 3G technology. Mobile operators continue to build their 4G LTE in Nigeria. Theoretically, 4G is faster than 3G. But before you compare the 4G with 3G speed, it is important to understand that there are different versions of 4G.
Speaking of 4G, things can be a little confusing. 4G and 4G LTE are the once present. Many people consider 4G LTE technology to be the true 4G. In general, when a mobile operator talk of 4g network without mentioning 4G LTE, it does speak of HSPA (High Speed ​​Packet Access). HSPA is a faster version of the 3G GSM network. Although not as fast as LTE, it is still faster than a 3G network. Since 4G LTE is relatively new in Nigeria, mobile phone providers have not yet completely built their LTE networks. Be careful when you are looking at the coverage of the map network on provider websites. Some companies claim to have a wide coverage of 4G. They can actually be refering to the HSPA coverage and not LTE.
Theoretically, 4G LTE in Nigeria can be up to ten times faster than 3G. In practice, the actual speed of the network load varies depending on the power of the network and signals in your area. Although LTE does not meet its nominal speed, it is still much faster than 3G. Activities that require large amounts of data, such as streaming movies, work very well in an LTE network. If you plan extensive data on hunger activities or just the best performance when you surf the internet, you should actually plan to buy a compatible smartphone with LTE.
In Nigeria, Some internet provider have already been providing 4G LTE Service, and some have just joined the league.
