According to him, Spectranet is now well positioned to transform the quality and availability of Internet service offerings across Nigeria.


  1. I love Spectranet, not just here in Nigeria but also in India. I just hope they give all these data plans here in Nigeria 2mbps, 4mbps, 8mbps, 16mbps unlimited plan, with unlimited data. No limit & no speed reduction for a month. With this they will win over the market, I’ll personally see to that.

  2. Yes, spectranet is the fastest internet I’ve used in Nigeria, 5mbps download speed is the fastest I’ve ever gotten, but 5mbps these days is absolutely nothing compared to the speeds in the first world, 5mbps is what 3G was almost 10 years ago, 4G should be giving 5 to 10 times more than that. It’s time spectranet does something different before another company comes in and does it for them.
