  1. Spectranet breach of service
    I notice that I cant browse only to call their customer care rep that told us that our plan has been change without notifying us. This is terrible in the sense that
    1. we were not notified
    2. We are exploited & cheated because the plan we were transfered to was 10G (512kbs) for N8,500 but their current price for 10G (2MPS) is N8,000
    3. We should be notify either to b aware inorder to adjust our usage or go for another ISP or other plan.
    We continue ignorantly that the link will b up but to our suprise we were loosing business due to inactivity. Spectranet Ltd are defrauded us and I will figth back with social media, review site, newspaper comment & every available means if they did not compensate us as a customer. We deserve to be treated well as customer not to be defrauded. This indian are coming into our country to defraud us. Can we do that in their country. Enough is enough of this kind of insanity. Spread the news & let us stop this kind of fraud together as Nigerian internet service subscriber to avoid either them or any other ISP to try such a defrauding act

  3. Have you tried the cobranet unlimited plan? Is it truly unlimited? The price makes me a bit suspicious because its cheap compared to other capped ones that are wayy more expensive. I have a feeling they reduce the speed till it becomes unusable after a while of using the internet.

  4. Hi Anonymous,

    I haven't tried the Cobranet unlimited plan. And like you said, there'll definitely be some restriction, most likely speed.

    I'll check for more details and update you.

    Thanks for your insightful comment.

  6. Hello Nigerian, we are not here to talk for or against, we are to say what exactly going on. For Spectracnet, they failed to come up with a solution to that migration on time, but let us wait and see how they go about soon. Please keep positing if there is any other thing you see. God Bless Federal Republic Of Nigeria. God Bless Me.

  7. I am in the process of getting a broadband for my home/office. I have narrowed it down to either Swift or Spectranet. On face value Spectranet has a better deal on Price. However I am a bit concerned if they are a reliable as Swift. You wrote that - (My personal view: I will recommend spectranet over the other two. I consider it the most reliable.) Why do you consider them the most reliable and what do you say to your first complaint dated 13th Nov. 2013.? Also there is a Promo at Spectranet, If I join up will I remain on the promo price or is a temporary gimmick to reel in customers then change the plan? I would appreciate your advice. Thank you

  8. Hi PKSOL,

    I'm now using Spectranet. And if I were in your shoes, especially for business needs, I would go for Spectranet. I have found them reliable.

    But it's just my opinion based on my own experience. I have no issue with Swift beyond the fact that they kept calling WiMax, 4G. I like people being straightforward, especially corporate bodies.

    But I've met people who are very happy with their Swift internet service. So I whichever choice you make, I don't think you'll regret it.

  9. Spectranet are not reliable, and I would say they are 419. I have a hotel which has been using their service for about 5 months. What they tend to do is after a week or so of paying you are disconnected stating that you have used up all your allowance. When the service is up and running it is good and fast but I don't see them as an honest company. they want you to keep paying every week or 2. There customer service is crap as well as rep's. I am still on the search for reliable good internet in Abuja. Tina

  11. WiMax and LTE are the two technologies deployed under 4G network. Wimax was the first technology deployed under 4G network. LTE (Long Term Evolution) is the newest technology that advances on WiMax. So Swift is still on point, and they have upgraded to lte as well. The problem with Swift is their network coverage isn't as wide as that of spectranet.

  12. i have a swift mifi. i have had it for the past three months. i use it for night browsing. i am getting speeds of 2.5mbps.
    i recently bought a spectranet mifi as a stop gap.[ i work in apapa, and i have had to work from home on occassion because of the traffic.] i also have some issues with weird data logging from swift [ 7gb over a weekend??? with my wifi hidden and passworded]. i am considring moving to a different network . also, i wanted to see how the 55gb data plan from spectranet would go.a colleague was raving about it and how he was watching movies on you tube with no buffering issues. i am running the excess value plan, and i am getting a speed of 230kbps.
    this is to say the least, pathetic. 1/10th the speed i get on swift. i don't know if the speed is tied to the plan i am using, or if i will get better speeds if i opt for the 55gb night plan.

    it would seem at face value, that spectranet is a tradeoff of speed vs datacap

  13. Hmm, that's an interesting case you've got.

    I now have 2 spectranet devices -- 1 MiFi and 1 USB dongle. I've had the MiFi since Feb 2014 and I just bought the USB one this month as I couldn't get the Spectranet SIM without buying a companion device. I use the new SIM for night plan (40GB N4,000 10pm to 8am downloads). I use the old SIM for normal work at 25GB for N8,000.

    There is no speed difference between the 24/7 plan and the night plan. And I strongly feel the speed issue you are encountering is due to location, maybe Spectranet has hooked too many of you guys in Apapa on too few base stations. Or the nearest base station to you is far enough to limit the speed.

    On my spectranet, I get 2mbps but my signal strength is 3 out of 5 bars.

  18. Spectranet is too slow. Too bad I bought it already before knowing, Would have stuck to swift instead. Just wanted to give it a try and all but jeez

  19. i can connect you on any of the three(3) networks and you pay less. download unlimited, stream, surf, anything. just 4k per month.. my email hbbeor@yahoo.com

  20. How fast is Spectranet in Yaba and how do i subscribe for the 40gb @ 4k plan
    tnks

    ReplyDelete
  21. hello spectranet is very fast i am a witness to that but i would have loved if they had an unlimited download period in the day like swift does from 2-6am i guess. i think they would have more customers that way considering they are faster and cheaper than swift already

    1. Hi,

      That unlimited download by SWIFT is not pure. They go ahead and deduct your money afterwards. They let you download all you want in the early morning, like you said. But still they wipe off your remaining credits afterwards.

      That has been my experience.

  22. Any update on the ISP service. It's year 2016.. was just wondering which would be the best for a small business in Ikoyi (reliability, speed and down time is of upmost concern)

    1. I honestly don't know. But I know Spectranet is slow in Lekki Phase 1 and Swift has patchy coverage. Haven't tried Smile there, yet.
