Which Internet Connection Do I Use?

I do a lot of downloading & uploading. I need something stable & fast.

I've tried IZAP (not ok 4me)

I've tried mtn 3.5g (very very unstable)

Thought of swift (Don't know how good & reliable they are)

Please recommend something good for me as I'm tired and frustrated about internet services in Nigeria.

Your contributions/suggestions will be greatly and immensely appreciated.

Thanks

Yes,Through the Google search,I found Comcast internet service.

I have deluxe 50 plan from Comcast.

For me

Download speed-20.047mbps

Upload speed-6.043mbps I checked my internet speed using ScanmySpeed.com

What do you think about my internet speed?

Thanks to everyone who has contributed positively, I appreciate you all.

@brianromel

Can swift work very effectively @ Ibafo. If yes it's ok irrespective of the cost, as long as you're ok with their services, the cost doesn't matter.

I feel your pain ranch,cos i download alot.

The guy that advised you on download managers has a point,u can try dap premium,free download manager or idm its will help your speed on what ever isp your using,also try upping they default download speed.

For izap,try downloading iboast from starcomm's site,it should help abit.

Try checking out iwise posts on the phone section on research,it has some tricks that will help speed up your mozilla and internet explore.

As for swift,its fast cos thats what we use in me office,and its expensive 45k for the equipment and then between 7k and 75k per month depending on how many systems u want to use it with and at what time.

For where your parking to,go with your mtn,but if you feel your up to it for swift,you can call them to find out their cost.

In terms of the best i've used so far,cool link and direct on pc seem to be the fastest internet isp's i've seen so far

Hi my Friend that is part of the reason i prefer browsing with phone. Because you pay a lot to your Isp and still get little out of it. However for big internet guys like you, i have one suggestion; There is one Isp based in Canada but give internet connection to nigerians (Broadbad) but i cant remember their name yet. I will gwt back to you as soon as i remember. I shall be well with our isps. Amen

Thanks my brother , people come in here and all they do is just complains. If person use starcomms or MTN and is not satisfied in Nigerian , then the person get to go Nitel or Niacomsat. Lets pray that glo complete this their GLO-1 Cable one day and then sell it cheap to other ISP, then our internet will Improve.

A country like Nigeria can not depend on VSAT to step down its internet connectivity and then share it around through wireless and expects it to be good, some get from Nitel and we all know that Nitel is not in existence , how they even manage to get bandwidth from Nitel surprises me . So we just get to manage all this.

Saying all this , I have used wireless internet in UK(T-mobile and 3) and they don't seems to be anything better that starcomms in Nigeria, sometimes I have to wait for signals to come back on. So my own conclusion is if we want to have a steady internet without complain, na cable ooo, if not make we just leave with it . This guys , some of them dey try

Thanks. I'm actually talking about broadband & not dial-up. I have an IZAP, mtn 3.5g but they aren't ok. Somebody told me about IPNX & Swift but I don't know.

I'm frustrated & another thing is that I'm moving to my new house @ Mowe Ibafo. I know that's going to be the worst.

Any recommendations?

For personal experiences, Broadband is the best for you. The problem will be choosing the best broadband service available. Dial-up can be sickening. Outside your home, try trusted wifi hotspots or local area connections around you. Moreover, you should have a download manager.

Hi rancetech,

Hey, sorry for the inconvinencies caused by our Nigerian networks/service providers. Really I must sincerly tell you this, there is no reliable one. Why I'm saying this is that I have also used a lot of them all in the name of relliability and stability. In fact it got to a stage that I had to purchase an internet speed booster to help me out.

The best one I can recommend is a broadband service directly from an internet provider, the likes of the one used for cafe and it will be for one or two systems. Although it is very expensive but it is still managable. It is what I am using presently. But nevertheless you can just manage the ones you have because I fear you might just meet someone who will promise you a very good connection and at the long run will also fail you and the person will come pleading or looking for excuse.

To Your Success.
