Telecoms company MTN Nigeria has begun offering faster internet speeds by launching 4G+ in major cities including Lagos, Abuja and Port-Harcourt.
The new service will offer a much higher broadband speed, regular connection and improvements in indoor coverage.
MTN is using 800MHz spectrum for the 4G+ launch in an effort to extend the reach and capacity of its data network in Nigeria and enable speeds of up to 200Mbps.
MTN subscribers using 4G+ should find that downloads will work at a much faster rate than before.
According to Mazen Mroue, CEO of MTN: “The launch of 4G+ represents a natural evolution from MTN’s already fast and reliable 4G network and further demonstrates the company’s commitment to continued investment in technology that caters to the present and future needs of its customers and country.
“At MTN, we believe that everyone deserves the benefits of a modern connected life. With this enhancement, our customers in covered locations can expect faster downloads and uploads, and better browsing and streaming experiences.”
To activate the service, customers need a compatible mobile device as well as an MTN standard 4G SIM card.
