Nigeria In One Minute

Consumers groan over poor connections as 4G/LTE services wobble



Telecommunications subscribers are unhappy with the mobile network operators over slow Internet connections, especially the fourth generation long term evolution (4GLTE) offerings in Nigeria.

Various complaints have greeted the 4G LTE services across Nigeria. From Lagos to Abuja, Enugu to Port Harcourt, and Kano to Katsina, as monitored by The Guardian the story remains, especially for service providers, which claimed to have launched 4G nationwide.

The 4G are the fourth generation of wireless mobile telecommunications technology, succeeding the 3G. Potential and current applications include amended mobile web access, IP telephony, gaming services, high-definition mobile TV, video conferencing, and 3D television.

But The Guardian investigations showed that consumers are currently not satisfied with these services and have called on the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), to quickly act accordingly.

A visibly angry Lagos-based MTN customer, Toyin Adigun, said the operators needed to do more to convince subscribers that they were offering 4GLTE services.
