Months ago, MTN Nigeria paid $276 million for the 5G license, in Nigeria. And just recently, the telecom giant began rolling out the 5G technology in selected locations in Nigeria, including Abuja, Lagos, Enugu, and Port Harcourt. To use the 5G technology in any of the cities mentioned above, you’ll need a smartphone with 5G technology enabled. However, because 5G-enabled smartphones are not common yet, and are relatively expensive, MTN is making 5G routers available to its users.
According to MTN, its 5G router is 10x faster than the MTN 4G router and can connect to multiple devices (up to 32 different devices). Also, with the MTN 5G Router, you are guaranteed a better gaming experience, superior streaming, data download, uploads, etc.
