One thing that limits the use of Glo 4G in Nigeria was because it was launched on band 28 which isn’t supported by most 4G enabled devices in Nigeria. Though some Infinix and Tecno phones that are recently launched to support the band frequency.
On the other hand, MTN and 9Mobile launched their 4G service on Band 20 and 3 which are supported by most 4G enabled phones in Nigeria.
I’m glad to let you know that the recently launched Airtel 4G LTE has been on Band 3, Frequency 1800MHz which is supported by virtually all Tecno, Infinix, Gionee, itel, Nokia and Xiaomi 4G enabled phones.
