Should I buy a Universal Modem/Dongle or Any of MTN, Airtel, Glo, Etisalat Network modem and Unlock it?

Having made use of vast varieties of modems or dongle as some of you will call it from different manufacturers; you can be rest assured that you are hearing from the horse’s mouth.

Now here comes that moment that you are planning to buy a modem and you plan to be using any of MTN, Airtel, Glo or Etisalat network SIM on it.

The question now is that; should you go straight for a universal modem or a particular networked modem and unlock it thereafter?

If you are one of them that are currently facing such contemplation right now, then consider yourself lucky for coming over here.

Without much ado, when it comes to modem/dongle manufacturing, up till this moment, Huawei and Zte are known to be producing most of the strongest and durable modems out there.

In other words, Huawei and Zte modems are tested and trusted, but the bone of contention here is that most of the MTN, Airtel, Glo and Etisalat modems are Huawei or Zte made, customized to a particular network and does allow the use of any other network SIM apart from the network that it was made for.

Whereas getting yourself a universal modem will allow you to start using any network SIM without any tweaking or unlocking straightaway.

Now here comes the bigger deal; remember that we said that Huawei and Zte produces the best out of modem, and MTN, Airtel, Glo and Etisalat Modems are mostly Huawei and Zte makes, what about the universal modems out there that you are going to buy, which company manufactured them?

Most of the universal modems out there are made by unknown modem makers and in fact most of them even tend to be fake and will end up giving you one or two problems when you purchase and try to make use of them.

Problems like the modem not being detected by your PC, or SIM network signal not coming up and so many other unforeseen issues are very common with universal modems.

So your best bet when it comes to buying of modem/dongle is for you to go for either of Huawei or Zte MTN, Airtel, Glo or Etisalat network modem.

Good a thing now is that most of these networked modems can be unlocked easily and freely with the appropriate tools and codes, while the few of the stubborn modems can also be unlocked with few pennies.

The older Huawei and Zte networked modems are easier and free to unlock as a result of the 35… IMEI initials and the old algorithm unlock codes do the job flawlessly, but the new versions with 86… IMEI requires new algorithm codes for you to unlock them, which can also be easily obtained.

Since we are not discussing modem unlocking today but a suggestion on the best modem/dongle to buy, we want to sound it again loudly that you should go for any of the networked Huawei or Zte modem and unlock it if you want to use any other network SIM on them.

Avoid universal modem like a plague in order to avoid telling of stories that touches.

You should consider going for any of the Etisalat Zte modem or MTN Huawei or Zte modem as they are currently the easiest to unlock freely.

Which Network is Currently Rocking Your Internet World? Find Out the One that is Currently Blazing for me

According to some, they say that browsing is their birth right and that they must browse…lol…who am I to even try to dispute that statement!

But truth is that in this modern world, staying without internet connectivity just for a day is becoming like a sin that cannot be forgiven.

People have really gone global with the help of the internet, far and near, they have connected amongst themselves and I am beginning to wonder what the cravings for internet access will look like in 5 years to come when it has already gotten to its peak presently.

There is nothing as sweet as browsing with high speed, smooth and stable internet connectivity and there is equally nothing as bitter as strolling like a snail with poor internet connectivity.

Fact is that in this era, we all need high-speed and stable internet connectivity in any part of the world that we happen to find ourselves today; but it is sad that sometimes some of these types of internet connectivity are not readily and constantly available for some folks.

Just this morning as I logged into my Facebook account, somebody, a friend has just posted on his Facebook wall “that the only thing left for him is to break his MTN SIM”; which is a pure sign of frustration on his part with the MTN internet network, most probably in his location.

While some are currently happy, including me, that MTN is presently doing the magic as in good internet connectivity, some are seeing the opposite.

That is exactly what is obtainable in our environment today, as our locations still remains one of the major factors that determines the stability of internet network with any of the network providers in the country.

Some will currently tell you that Etisalat is presently blazing for them, while others still believe that Airtel is not as bad as what many think and that their internet services have improved drastically as result of mass exodus of subscribers from the network to other networks, thereby leaving the network currently less congested.

Yesterday, a friend told me that Glo is truly rocking his internet world.

Now, the big question is; which network is currently rocking your own internet world? If you don’t mind, you can share your tricks and tweak for others to tap.

For me, the MTN BIS is presently making me feel so high as if I am surfing the internet from the State on my PC.

Meanwhile, we have constantly updated here, networks that are blazing and I have shared the tips on how to use the MTN BIS on PC and also on how to use it on Android if you also want to tap from it.

Though, detailed examination has shown that the MTN BIS is smoother on PC than when used on Android.

Remember that Glo BIS is still blazing on android and on PC via tethering which can only be achieved via android IMEI tweaking to Blackberry IMEI.

Some folks still say that they are still grooving the EtisalatPayG while all the Airtel BIS plans are still blazing on any device without any special tweaking, apart from the airtel BIS complete plan that now offers 3GB of data at N1400; this particular one only work on some Blackberry devices.

Finally, the essence of today’s topic is for you to feel free to tell us the network that is presently rocking your internet world at high-speed…It is confession time…confess your current internet glorious network now!

You can use the comment box below to pour out your confessions and see if you will be forgiven…lol..
