4G capable phones are a leap over 3G phones.The major edges of 4G LTE are its speed and robustness. Their browsing, downloads, and video streaming speed could exceed 10X 3G speed.
Interestingly, virtually all internet providers in Nigeria now offer 4G LTE, including the likes of MTN, Glo, 9mobile, to mention a few. While some internet providers require users to get a special 4G SIM to access LTE, some offer the 4G feature on their usual SIMs.
