This post contains a list of all 4G LTE band frequencies in Nigeria for MTN, Glo, 9mobile (Etisalat), Airtel, Smile, Spectranet and more.
4G LTE networks have circulated in the major cities of the country and gradually spreading. In this post, I will share with you the 4G LTE band frequencies of the major networks in Nigeria.
This post will help those who want to purchase a 4G enabled phone, tablets, MiFi, Modems etc. Before you buy a phone, modem or MiFi in Nigeria, you have to be utterly sure that your network supports the band on that device.
For example, the Infinix Note 4 supports 4G LTE band 1(2100), 3(1800), 7(2600), 38(2600), 39(1900), 40(2300), 41(2500) (see full phone specs here), when I checked for all network bands, I realised Glo 4G LTE won’t work on it (scroll down to see Glo 4G band).
Okay, I hope you understand now. So, it’s very important that you know these things before buying your next gadget.

I ve htc 10 evo phone but Airtel 4g service not working on it is der any solution
Your phone must support a particular network’s band for it to work. There’s absolutely nothing you can do if it doesn’t support it, however, you can buy other devices that can work well with Airtel 4G.
This article is very helpful. i purchased a 4G LTE router without taking into consideration this bands. Now, I notice some 4G LTE network dont display on it. I had to order for another relying on the sales rep to tell me if it supports all network 4G. Guess they too dont even know.
God bless you for this info.

There are Band 28A and 28B. Both are within 700MHz
