It's speed is 10 times faster than 3G ( third revolution ) so if you are using it, you won't encounter slow or poor internet speed. Well, it has its advantages and disadvantages so let's see them.

Yea, I have successfully listed out the disadvantages and advantages of 4G LTE network but that doesn't mean you shouldn't go for it, it all depends on your choice and what you do best in the internet.

  5. Please I have a question if there is 4g network in my location and my phone support 4g network but my phone doesn't support the network band if I search for 4g network manually will my phone show available 4g network

    1. It will show but if it doesn't support the band, it will not connect to the Network provider's 4G LTE.

  6. I think all the same,most Nigerians will still have to go for a new phone cos after some time the 3g will become too dull and obsolete like the 2g
