Nigeria’s internet speed increases 39% in one year – Report – New Telegraph


Data released by Ookla indicated that the median mobile internet connection speed in Nigeria increased by 4.88 Mbps (39.0%) in the 12 months to the start of 2022, while fixed internet connection speeds increased. increased by 2.42 Mbps (31.7%) over the same period. Nigerian internet users could have expected a median mobile internet connection speed via cellular networks at 17.38 Mbps and a median fixed internet connection speed at 10.06 Mbps.

Meanwhile, Nigeria was ranked 151st on the fixed broadband internet speed rating of 182 countries, according to a new report. Nigeria’s average fixed broadband internet speed is said to be so slow that the country ranks 151st out of 182 countries in the latest global Speedtest Index released by US internet speed analytics company Ookla. Nigeria came far behind Congo, Mali, Sierra Leone, Togo and Burkina Faso, which are relatively smaller economically. It recorded a download speed of 20.97 megabits per second, while the fastest in the world, Singapore, reached 298 mbps.

In the mobile category, Nigeria came 87th out of 140 countries with a download speed of 33.29mbps, while South Africa took 46th place with 68.9mbps. The world leader in this category was the United Arab Emirates with 258 Mbps. Nigeria, however, recorded one of the fastest monthly increases of 15 places between July and August 2022. Among ISPs in Nigeria, ipNX ranked the fastest with a median speed of 21.34 bps while Smile was ranked the slowest with 2.44 mbps. Meanwhile, the rollout of 5G is believed to boost internet speed in Nigeria. When launching the new technology, MTN Nigeria said the network would be 10 times faster than 4G and expected to deliver internet speeds of around 300 Mbps for fixed systems.

On its 5G, internet speeds on the MTN network are expected to increase exponentially to 300 Mbps. Already, the company has rolled out its 5G broadband router priced at N50,000 which would provide super-fast internet access. Internet experts have said 5G could be significantly faster than 4G, delivering peak data rates of up to 20 Gigabits per second (Gbps) and average data rates of over 100 megabits per second (Mbps) , because 5G has more capacity than 4G. According to them, 5G technology has the ability to work faster on cellular and other devices.

Unlike 2G, 3G, 4G, and 4G LTE, which take hours to download movies, videos, music, and streaming services, with 5G, downloads will only take seconds. Additionally, the global gaming market is expected to benefit from 5G technology. With this technology, an average user can access up to 20 Gbps of Internet.

In terms of latency, 5G technology is said to significantly improve low latency, making it easier to support other emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, Internet of Things, and virtual reality. Moreover, due to its low latency, it facilitates navigation, thus improving the user experience. “With increased bandwidth, 5G technology allows data to be transferred seamlessly, improving device connectivity and overall user experience. Additionally, the technology improves performance by allowing users to switch between cellular and wireless Wi-Fi devices seamlessly. Also, consumer bandwidth would increase if there were fewer 5G towers,” they said.
