9mobile data speed
Before I give you the list of the available 9mobile data plan in Nigeria 2021, let talk a little about the speed of the network of this internet service provider in Nigeria.
I’ve done a little research myself to test the speed of the Etisalat internet service, I tested their service in 6 states in Nigeria. Actually, the test was carried in southwest Nigeria in 40 different cities using a 4G phone. I found out that 9mobile has the fastest network in these areas.
The case might be different in your own area, but from my findings, I discovered that you could still browse the internet in areas where you hardly find the 9mobile service which is not the case for other internet service providers in Nigeria.
I concluded that 9mobile is the best internet service provider in Nigeria when it comes to internet speed and quality. You should note that 9mobile data plans are not cheap at all. In fact, Etisalat data plans are one of the expensive in Nigeria.
