Both Etisalat and Glo have also started their 4G rollout.
Glo's plans are, again, enticingly cheap. And they seem to have the widest coverage, covered most number of cities.

No news yet from Airtel's camp.
It is amazing how lightning quick things change in the telecom space. It's barely a year ago I had a discussion with a senior manager at MTN who consumes the reports I make for MTN while consulting for a company that consults for MTN. He was explaining why no 4G yet and the roadblocks seemed persistent, mostly government. And now there's 4G, and on three (four, Ntel inclusive) Telcos already.
Anyway, I'll be checking out the available options on all of the providers and updating you with my findings.
