  • Pros: The MTN modem is quite affordable, plus it’s handy, so I can take it with me everywhere. The internet connection is good when it is, and the bundles are affordable as well. On average, I spend about 30k a month on data.
    Cons: The internet connection is capital B for bad sometimes, and the bundles finish too quickly. The battery for the modem is horrendously useless; you have to keep it plugged in every time. - Liz, Lekki Phase 2
  • Pros: The network coverage is good; you’ll be connected to the internet in most locations in Nigeria.
    Cons: The service is bad. If not that the others are terrible, I would have ditched it. - AY, Mafoluku.

  • Pros: There are no pros.
    Cons: The network is slow and frustrating. - Bluu, Ogudu

    Cons: When it rains, it can become really slow or stop working completely. Customer service is nearly non-existent. So if you have issues, you might actually need to pray.

  • Pros: It’s affordable.
