My Thoughts

I guess you are wondering why I exclusively decided to talk about Airtel 4G MiFi Hotspot first, what about the one from MTN, Glo and even Huawei universal 4G MiFi. They all are good but there is a reason I chose this one.

Well, the reason is not far fetch, the Airtel 4G MiFi cost less than the competition and surprisingly has an outstanding record of maintaining a high delivery rate  when it comes to performance in Nigeria.

I use it to work at home, my impressions so far are positive. I so much love the fact that it has a display to work with as this is the second generation of Airtel 4G MiFi Hotspot router in Nigeria.

When you buy one, you get free 25GB to browse the first month. Check how much airtel 25GB data cost in 30days. Do your math and spot the difference. Now tell me, isn’t it a good value for your money?

  1. Thanks for the info. I recently ordered for one actually via Konga online and it didn’t come with any free data. Even when I tried subscribing to some data, the exhaustion rate was quite high like 200-250mb per click. What would you advice I do to have it function.

    1. The complusory sim registration imposed by the Federal Government of Nigeria prevents Airtel and all other telecom operator in Nigeria from registering any new SIM, so you can’t enjoy the free data for now.

      You can only enjoy the free data when FG permit new SIM card issuing and registration, only then can you visit any Airtel main office in your city and request for your free data.

      The high data consumption you are experiencing is as a result of some preinstalled softwares automatically updating on your PC.You can turn them off in order to minimize data consumption.

      What you need to turn off
      1. If you are using windows, there are pictures displayed on the start page, right-click on them and select “turn live title off”

      2. Your window update settings should be removed from automatic update, select the option that allow you update it with you permission.

      Hope these help. Let me know if you need anything cheers! 😊

    2. hi, i got mine at on broad street Promo saes, came with supposed 5GB. believe me i cant say how many minute the 5Gb lasted, used on my android , though a bit on pc, no downloads apart from fact that lot of automatic downloads seems to be queuing on my phone due to wifi absence. i tried buying 1500N which gave me 3GB and on mobile only. just in the morning and was swept off ta same morning. just wondering wondering if this usage is sustainable .

    1. Yes. However, you can unlock it to enable it work for other SIMs but it’s not recommended though

    1. On purchase, you get free internet data and double data on all monthly subscription for 3 months.Airtel always say 6 months but it’s actually 3 months

  2. Hello thanks for the info, I use cyberspace but recently I have heard from 2 colleagues about the performance of these mifi devices from the telecos. I’m trying to recommend one to my brother living on the mainland (Lagos mainland), which of the networks’ mifi would you recommend sir? Thanks once more for your time.

  3. It seems Airtel knowingly heightens the rate of data consumption even on android. It consumes data more than other networks as per my experience. They should try to adjust to encourage their customers.
