Best internet provider in Nigeria

The best internet provider in Nigeria, sorry Abuja is…¬†*Keep reading, there is a list of my top 5 internet providers at the end of this post.*¬†This post is long overdue because I know there are several people out there who have been frustrated by service providers in Nigeria.

I started out with Glo, which was and still is very affordable but with an average network. I initially did not mind the occasional slow connection but then it became worse. Being a blogger goes hand-in-hand with data connectivity, so you can imagine how unbearable it was to have no reliable access to the internet.

I decided to try out other internet providers; Airtel and MTN but they were not any better for me. Some people say Etisalat is the best network amongst the lot (MTN, GLO, and Airtel) but I choose to differ. It didn’t make much difference to me (at least for my location).

I came to the premature conclusion that no Nigerian service provider was good enough (for a blogger or YouTuber). But that was until I decided to step out of the box and try something new; SMILE.

Right now I have no regrets whatsoever. I take the device with me everywhere I go and SMILE has been priceless. Try them out and I’m sure you would not be disappointed. Comment below which network you think is the best.

Till next week …

With Love,


P.S. Based on my experiences and those of friends & family, here is what you have been waiting for:

    Anyways, I think you are right about two things, the first is that this is based on your experience and secondly, I did also have given Smile first place.
    My initial laughter was Glo as number 2…jeez, the the things i ve heard about Glo’s internet scares the thought of using away from my
    Nice write up though.

    Hahahahhahaha I totally disagree but then again you will talk from your own experience I think you should try NTEL you will thank me later

    • Janet March 15, 2017 at 8:48 am

      lol ok will try NTEL and if its as good as you say, I will definitely post updates on the blog.

        NTEL definitely. For a serial downloader like myself, NTEL’s unlimited data at N10,000 monthly is bliss. People ask me why I need unlimited data. Bruh, I use over 100GB monthly. Glo’s 90GB costs N18,000 monthly. You see where I’m going with this? I don’t even pay for Glo data anymore instead I hotspot my NTEL. Glo sucks at home but works pretty okay in the central area. Nevertheless NTEL wins for service at home, speed, package and price.
