These network providers know fully well that the internet serves as a medium to check the latest information online. Several improvements were made by these service providers to boost the speed of their customer internet connectivity with the introduction of 4G LTE broadband services for smartphones and other mobile devices.

Below is the list of the best internet network provider in Nigeria.

1. Globacom Nigeria

GLO stands out as the best internet service provider in the country since 2017. Coupled with its affordable data plans which can be used on virtually all kinds of mobile phones.

Glo first started with 2G network and later introduced ‘3.75G’ which increased the speed of internet connectivity for its subscribers. Presently they have the 4G LTE service which is super fast for internet browsing.

GLO 4G LTE broadband service stands out from the rest because of the download speed. Thich means it is super fast for chatting on social networks, playing online games, and streaming a live video.

As a game lover, movie lover, or social media chat lover, I would advise that you consider GLO internet service because their browsing speed is second to none. And also they said they are the “grandmaster of data“.

Although MTN Nigeria is the oldest service provider in the country and has all it takes to render the fastest network in the country but it seems to be outrun by other networks. Therefore it comes third in the list of the fastest internet network provider in Nigeria.

MTN Nigeria also has the 4G LTE but is mostly functional in big cities of the country. Unlike GLO Nigeria whereby you can even see 4G LTE installation in not too develop areas of the country this is not the case with MTN Nigeria; so speed in internet browsing is guaranteed in the big cities of the country.

Lastly, MTN offers unlimited WiFi plans and cheap data plans on a daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly basis. However, a lot is still yet to be done concerning their browsing speed especially in small cities of the country

Although 9mobile boasts a speedy connection to the Internet, however, it’s not as fast as the aforementioned internet network service providers.
