Connect[edit]

Most locations in Asokoro have 2G/3G/4G mobile network coverage. Different networks tend to be more stable and reliable in different locations of the city at different times.

If you are planning a visit to this city, you should probably consider having multiple SIM cards, preferably for all the mobile service providers, since you can't tell which will be more stable and reliable at a time in your location during your visit. And if you will risk not having any of them, you might be better off not risking the MTN network, because, from indications, it seems to perform well than the others, though its rates may be high and its offers and services might be stringent, but you are less likely to be concerned of erratic voice and data connection compared to others.

Airtel is another service provider which is fairly satisfactory for all you might need to connect to the world, including rates and network stability. Of course, Glo (or Globacom) boasts of fast network speed for internet browsing activities, but that might not be enjoyable in some locations in Asokoro. And 9Mobile usually also performs well in internet browsing speed but not without locational limitations.
