How to know if your Glo Sim and Phone is Glo 4G-LTE Compatible

If you live on planet Earth then the word 4G LTE shouldn't come new to you. The acronym LTE stands for "Long Term Evolution." It is the evolution of standards for wireless network after 3G, and it is the most advanced Ultra Fast Internet Speed.

Glo 4G LTE


With Glo 4G LTE, you got no worries! The era of downloading movies or big files documents (probably games, videos or whatsoever) overnight is over. I can't remember when last I wanted to download a movie and I had to wait all through the night all because of a 300MB movie? On 4G LTE, a movie or file with 300MB file size will seem like just only 30MB to you.

In minutes (or even in a twinkle of an eye), the movie is already downloaded to your phone. Not to now talk of music, in a few seconds, it's downloaded already! For those of you still on 3G, you are missing alot.

However, since the launch of Glo 4G LTE in Nigeria, many subscribers has had issues using Glo 4G LTE Frequency, Band 28(700MHz). The Band Frequency is not so-used and popular in Nigeria (unlike countries like India, China and the rest), but in Nigeria, purchasing a smartphone that supports Glo Band 28(700MHz) Frequency is quite a bit of a challenge, most devices are likely to come with Band 3(1800MHz), Band 40(2300MHz), and any other band asides Band 28(700MHz). That's why in Techyhands, we always urge our users to make research on the Band Frequencies supported by their Network Providers before purchasing a 4G LTE device. With that prior knowledge, you would definitely watch out for the Phone's 4G LTE Frequency before purchasing.
