LTE (Long Term Evolution) is the next big thing in telecommunications with lots of major networks in the world rolling out 4G LTE networks. A lot of mobile devices now feature LTE like the Microsoft Lumia 950, iPhone 6S, Samsung Galaxy S7, iPad Pro, and many more.

LTE offers superfast data speed up to 100Mbps. According to Airtel, they were able to achieve speeds of 37Mbps under ideal conditions and 32Mbps in non-ideal conditions during the test.

This is superfast speed for streaming videos and other exciting multimedia services. With the 4G LTE testing complete in Lagos, Airtel says it will start tests in other cities like Abuja and Port Harcourt.

So, far there is no news of when the Airtel 4G LTE service will be launched officially. This is an exciting news, since this is the first time we are hearing about 4G LTE in Nigeria since Glo made some noise about it almost 2 years ago. Let’s hope there is meat in this one.
