Right now, the Airtel 4G LTE is working in some parts of the country (Ogun, Lagos and Ibadan). We expect this development to reach other parts of Nigera soon.
But just before it reaches your area, you should have an idea on how this 4G LTE can be activated for you.
What is Airtel’s 4G Band?
Airtel is runs on Band 3 (1800MHz ) which is compatible with almost all 4G enabled smartphones
Here’s the result of Airtel’s 4G Speedtest in Ibadan. According to NaijaTechGuy, the download speed was 28.45 Mbps and upload was 8.77 Mbps.
How To Activate ItVisit an Airtel shop with sim card and request for a sim swap. After the sim swap, if the network is available in your area, your 4G should be up and running.
You can run a check if Airtel 4G is visible in your area by accessing phone settings > Mobile networks > Network operators. Tap Search networks to initiate a search. After a short period, a list of available networks will be presented to you.
