Now that Ntel SIM is gradually circulating in Lagos Nigeria, you might want to see how to configure your  Ntel 4G Sim Access Point (APN) settings for your Android, MiFi, Modem or other 4G enabled device.

Your Ntel sim card must have come with an already subscribed data plan which will give you unlimited browsing and downloading; Ntel data plans varies from daily, weekly and monthly plans.

If you are getting the SIM for the first time, I guess you should have a 3 month test period which will allow you to test drive the speed of Ntel 4G network.

What type of device should I look out for?

Ensure your phone has a Flexible Division Duplex (FDD) with support for LTE 3 (1800MHz) and 8 (900MHz) spectrum bands. You can always get this details on the product packaging or documentation of your phone. Source: MobilityArena
