What do you have to say about this?


  1. This is Great! I have never experienced the 4G Network! My phone is 4G enabled but couldn’t get any 4G of any network yet! I will be very cool and impressive seeing the 5G enable devices next year..
    Thanks for the info.

  2. That’s cool.. But I think they should be snappy on circulating the 4G LTE across the states in Nigeria before launching the new 5G! Just wondering how the speed will be..
