Airtel 4G Goes Live In Some Nigerian Cities - Here's How To Activate It


A few weeks ago, some subscribers started noticing the presence of Airtel 4G LTE on their devices and now, it is live in some part of Ogun, Lagos and Ibadan. Hopefully it would be rolled out to other states soon.

What is Airtel's 4G Band?

Airtel runs on Band 3 (1800MHz) which is compatible with almost all 4G enabled smartphones 

Here's the result  of Airtel's 4G Speedtest in Ibadan, the download speed was 28.45 Mbps and upload was 8.77 Mbps.

How To Activate It

Walk in to any airtel office closest to you with your current Airtel SIM and request for a sim swap. After the sim swap, if the network is live in your location , your 4G should be up and running.

You can run a check if Airtel 4G is visible in your location and let me know.  Go to your phone settings -

I've also reached out to Airtel for comments on this.
