How to get access to 5G service in Nigeria

In order to use the 5G network, you must have a mobile phone or a device that supports 5G, and you must be in an area where the 5G network is serviced. In this case, the phone or device will automatically connect to 5G.

Presently, there are limited 5G devices. Only 20,000 customers of MTN with enabled devices can try out the 5G network where coverage is available as it is. Already, MTN has started selling a 5G broadband router  for its customers to be able to access the network.

There are no dedicated bundle plans for MTN 5G customers, as customers are to use Broadband Home or Office data propositions. However, 5G customers are encouraged to activate 100GB and above for a better experience.

If you have a mobile phone that supports 5G but does not connect to the 5G network, you can check the network mode to make sure that your phone is 5G enabled. Follow the steps below:

Android

  • Step 1. Open Settings and select Connections
  • Step 2. Select Mobile Network
  • Step 3. Tap Network mode and then select the option with 5G connectivity

iPhone

The default settings for 5G on iPhone are optimised for battery life and data usage based on your data plan. You can customise these options for when to use 5G and how much data to use in some apps.

Find these options by going to Settings > Cellular > Cellular Data Options. If you’re using Dual SIM, go to Settings > Cellular and choose the number whose options you want to change.

Voice & Data

Choose how your iPhone uses the 5G network, which can affect battery life.

  • 5G Auto: Enables Smart Data mode. When 5G speeds don’t provide a noticeably better experience, your iPhone automatically switches to LTE, saving battery life.
  • 5G On: Always uses 5G network when it’s available. This might reduce battery life.
  • LTE: Uses only LTE network, even when 5G is available.

Data Mode

  • Allow More Data on 5G: Enables higher data-usage features for apps and system tasks. These include higher-quality FaceTime, high-definition content on Apple TV, Apple Music songs and videos, iOS updates over cellular, and automatic iCloud backups.
    • With this setting, your iPhone can automatically use 5G instead of Wi-Fi when Wi-Fi connectivity is slow or insecure on a network you visit occasionally. To turn this feature off and on for a certain network, go to Settings > Wi-Fi. Tap the info button next to the Wi-Fi network and tap Use Wi-Fi for Internet.
    • This setting also allows third-party apps to use more cellular data for enhanced experiences.
    • This is the default setting with some unlimited-data plans, depending on your carrier.
    • This setting uses more cellular data.
  • Standard: Allows automatic updates and background tasks on cellular, and uses standard quality settings for video and FaceTime. This is generally the default mode.
  • Low Data Mode: Helps reduce Wi-Fi and cellular-data usage by pausing automatic updates and background tasks.

Whenever 5G network is unavailable beyond 5G coverage, the phone automatically reverts to 4G (LTE) or 3G speed. Check if the phone shows the 5G indicator in the status bar. If not, your phone is using 4G (LTE) or 3G.
