• You need to be in an MTN 4G LTE network coverage area, and currently we said that it is available only in Abuja and Lagos.
• You need to have an active data subscription and any of your normal MTN data subscription plans will just be Ok
• Finally you need to use your device and head to the mobile network settings section and set it to highlight the 4G or LTE network.
When you have done all that, your network signal will indicate 4G or LTE and you can then start cruising like jet, overtaking those still struggling with 2G and 3G network.
Some folks out there have already reported reaching a peak download speed of about 60Mbps with the new MTN LTE services on their device.
