A number of internet service providers ISPs exist in Nigeria to enable you connect your home or business to the internet. Here you will find information on internet service providers for connecting your home, business, or office to the internet in Nigeria.

Presently, the cheapest option for connecting to internet in Nigeria is via mobile telecommunications networks like Globacom, Airtel, 9Mobile (Etisalat), MTN, Zoom mobile, Visafone, Multilinks, and so on.

Over the past years there has been a remarkable improvement in the quality of internet services offered by mobile operators in Nigeria as operators roll out faster and more reliable internet services targeted at both home and business customers.

Businesses require fast and reliable internet services and providers like LinkServe, Direct on PC, iWay Africa, Globacom, Swift Networks, Mobitel, Starcomms iZap, MTN, 21st Century tech, ipNX, and so on can provide fast and reliable internet.

These Internet services companies supply broadband or near broadband internet services to their clients via cable, satellite, VSAT, fibre optics, wireless, and/or Wi-Fi/WIMAX.

However, mobile operators like MTN, Airtel, Visafone, Zoom mobile, Glo mobile, and Starcomms now offer fast and reliable internet services especially on their 3G networks good enough for micro, small, medium, and even large businesses.

Connecting to internet using mobile operators is popular in Nigeria, because it is cheaper and simpler. Most people wishing to connect to internet already have a mobile phone and in some cases, these mobile phones are internet ready.

This means that all one often needs to connect to internet via a mobile operator is to subscribe to an internet browsing bundle within his/her budget.

If your mobile phone supports USB, Bluetooth, or a data cable and has a built-in internet modem, you will be able to connect your computer to the internet with your mobile phone.

However, connecting your computer to the internet with a mobile phone is not always convenient because of interruptions as a result of incoming calls and SMS/MMS. An internet modem is recommended if you want a reliable internet access on your computer.

You can buy devices for connecting to internet like internet USB modems or internet data cards at between N5,000 and N11,000 from mobile networks in Nigeria.

Compare this with connecting with VSAT or cable where you need some expensive equipment. Even if you go for a Wi-Fi router from your mobile operator that enables you share your internet access in an office or home setting, at around N25,000, you will still be paying less especially for small businesses.

Internet services via VSAT and cable are fast, but wireless internet from mobile operators are now catching up with 3G, EDGE, and EVDO.

Price of internet has been falling and will continue to fall as demand continues to increase. Today with as low as N1,000 you can get one month internet access.

Similarly with as low as N5,000, you can get one month internet access for your micro or small business. If you looking for cost effective internet solutions for your home or small/micro business checkout internet bundles from Glo mobile, Airtel, MTN, Swift Networks, Etisalat, Starcomms, and so on.
