  1. What area in Lagos are you aware they are? No sim collection centre yet ooo.

    1. I heard that there network is now function at Lagos Mainland, you can check around the place for their office.

    2. check slot saka tinubu VI or Ntel shop in alfred rewane road Ikoyi

  2. Oga Shelaf, I ran into an Android App called "4G Switcher". I think when you have it installed on your Android device, there is a provision through the settings that can enable you switch to an LTE (4G). Pls, as an expert in this field, kindly run a background check on the App and update us on your findings. As for the speed of the network, it's simply wonderful. My friend uses it with a 4G Samsung phone here in Abuja (Wuse area). Spectranet and Smile are good 4G LTE internet providers, but ntel is a million miles ahead of both.Thanks for your undying commitment to this your blog. God's grace be multiplied unto you

    1. Oh no! 4G switcher can't be use to force 4G network on a non 4G device. If you have a 4G device and your phone supports your carrier's 4G bands, but you still can't get a 4G/LTE connection, you made need to enable LTE mode on your phone and if you think the method of dialing *#*#4636#*#* is complicated, alternatively, you can use that 4G LTE Switch app to enable the 4G network.
      Glad to hear good news about the ntel 4G service. You are most welcome and thanks for your wonderful contribution.

    1. Presently, I can't say yes or no, to your question.
      All I know is that each of these services 2G, 3G or 4G requires spectrum to be purchased which costs a lot of money. Regulated by NCC. For now, only 4G news we are earing on ntel, people can be able to use 2G and 3G service on ntel, only if they make provision for that too.

  4. Iphone 5 upwards is/are supported

    1. I was at ntel's office today. I was told categorically that iPhones are not yet supported on the network. The have a very slim list of currently supported devices, which is disappointing to say the least.

  5. It was nice I came across your blog. I have been looking for ways to manage my conversion/migration from spectranet/etisalat/mtn data to ntel without having to acquire new device or pay so much. I have spectranet lte cpe e5172 wifi and other gsm modems. They say I can not jail brake the spectranet lte cpe e5172. Is this true?

    Also, just today I realized that my son's infinix hot note supports wcdma and also that the well marketed techno canom c5 by ntel does not actually support 4g lte. What this has suggetsed to me is that I should go and buy the 2 day ntel plan (N1000) and insert it into my son's infinix hot note for trials.

    I strongly suspect it will work, but may be I may not get the speed I get from spectranet 4g. I promise to update you tomorrow after my trials.

  6. Those of us with our old mtel Sim cards, would it work on the new ntel network?? Or we may hv to go for a Sim swap??
