Nigeria’s leading telecommunications provider MTN has this morning switched on its highly anticipated Fifth-Generation (5G) service at one hundred and ninety sites across the country but mainly in Lagos and Abuja, with some users reporting internet speeds of up to 1.4g per second, according to sources.
A source close to MTN Nigeria disclosed that MTN kept to its promise by commencing the rollout of its 5G network with plans to cover five cities within one month of the rollout. The cities include Lagos, Abuja, Port Harcourt, Enugu and Kano.
Owing to the development, MTN has called on telecom subscribers to begin pre-order their 5G devices to enable them to enjoy the high-speed internet download with low latency that is associated with 5G, since not all devices can access the 5G network.
“The wonder of 5G is coming! Be among the first Nigerians to experience this incredible technology. Visit www.mtn.ng/5g-router to pre-order our 5G router now”, this was the message on MTN social media channels on Tuesday, August 23 2022, signaling that the mobile network operator has opened its portal for Nigerians to pre-order for 5G routers.
5G Network is 10 times faster than 4G network, you get superior streaming and your download is just in seconds.
