The Airtel 4G service which is titled “Airtel4Gthatworks” was launched on Thursday at the International Conference Centre, Abuja. Airtel_Nigeria, took to their Twitter handle to announce that the 4G LTE service has been launched in Abuja.
The Airtel 4G LTE has been on Band 3, frequency 1800MHz which is supported by most MTK devices that are 4G enabled. Airtel 4G seems to possess one of the fastest download and upload speed.
Just like how the users of Airtel’s 4G SIM card in Lagos, Ogun and Oyo state get free 4GB data bonus when they use the purchase and use the Airtel 4G SIM, we hope that they will also make this available for the 4G SIM cards in Abuja.
It is said that the Airtel 4G service is located at Lugbe, Asokoro, Jabi, Guzape, Garki, Wuse, Gwarimpa, Three Arms Zone, Maitama, Durumi, Utako, Central Business District areas. If you are a reside in Abuja, you should be aware that you need to purchase a new Airtel SIM or users who swap their SIMs to 4G LTE network SIM on any Airtel shop close to you. Once you swap or purchase the SIM, recharge N100 to activate and dial *140# to check if you were given the 4GB free data bonus.
