MTN is the first telecom company to launch 5G in Nigeria, and when I tested it out, I was wowed. In the box, it comes with a SIM card that you will need to register, a charger, a user guide manual, and an Ethernet cable. Now, the MTN 5G modem is available for pre-order on their website. Before pre-ordering, I would suggest you check if you are within the MTN 5G coverage area.

Smart Phones that Support MTN 5G
Note: You don’t necessarily need the MTN 5G modem to experience 5G speed. With a 5G smartphone from Nokia, Tecno, Infinix, Xiaomi, and Huawei, and with your existing MTN 4G SIM card, if you are within the MTN 5G coverage area, you should see 5G on your smartphone, you can start browsing and downloading at 5G speeds.
iPhones and the majority of Samsung users with 5G smartphones at the moment, if you’re within the MTN 5G coverage area, you won’t be able to use MTN 5G because MTN is currently in talks with Apple and Samsung, and hopefully, before the year ends, a software update will fix that problem.
MTN 5G Speed
With the MTN 5G, you get speeds exceeding 1 gigabyte per second. That’s like 10 times the speed of 4G. And yes, I tested it out. I downloaded apps like Instagram, WhatsApp, and TikTok, and it was instant. For Call of Duty with a file size of 2.3 gigabytes, it downloaded that game in 81 seconds, guys, that’s under 2 minutes, and in my books, that’s an amazing Speed.
It usually takes 4 to 5 hours to download the games I use to test out the gaming capabilities of a smartphone, and now it only takes less than 15 minutes.
Uploading a 3-gigabyte YouTube video used to take around 20 to 25 minutes, but now, 15 minutes. And playing games online with my Xbox is now possible with no lag. As a content creator, it’s exactly what I need. It has leveled the playing field between myself and creators abroad. My internet speed is no longer an issue with MTN 5G.
Now, it’s not all roses. MTN 5G is still in its beta phase, and the connection speed wasn’t fast in some locations.
And speaking of internet speed, because it’s fast, your data will deplete quickly, but that will depend on what you’re doing on the internet. If you’re just chatting on WhatsApp, your data balance won’t go down easily.
