NIGERIA TOURIST SIM CARD AND PREPAID SIM CARD IN NIGERIA

NIGERIA PREPAID SIM CARD BACKGROUND

First thing we have to say about Nigeria prepaid sim card and data connection in Nigeria is fine in the big cities and it will be weak outside the cities. There are 4 phone operators in Nigeria: MTN, Glo Mobile, Airtel and 9mobile. In general the data packages are affordable in Nigeria.

Obviously the best thing you can do to connect online is buying a prepaid sim card in Nigeria. It will be efficient and it will allow you to connect anytime.

We recommend you to get your Nigeria tourist sim card outside the airport because prices and packages are better in the official stores. Anyway data is affordable in Nigeria but the connection isn’t the best.

Sometimes is hard to connect your laptop to the VPN and you have to be patient. If you go for a week you will find VPN with free trials. We used Atlas VPN, ExpressVPN, NordVPN, Surfshark and Proton VPN. When connecting the VPN to your device will make it slower than usual.
