Lekki Peninsula Scheme 1, 2019

INTRODUCTION

Lekki Phase 1 is a well planned and mapped-out residential scheme by the Lagos state government. It is located in the Eti-Osa Local Government Area of the State.
Lekki phase 1 is considered to be one of the most expensive places to live in Nigeria. It currently has a reputation as an area with some of the most expensive real estate assets in Lagos State. The properties in Lekki phase 1 are expensive due to high demand (for both commercial & residential purposes) and proximity to the Victoria Island / Ikoyi business districts.

With over 70% demand of reliable network quality there is a high driving demand need for quality performance of mobile network coverage. This report is based on consumer experience in the LTE networks in Lekki Phase1 during day time hours. The drive was conducted on the 6th of February 2019 between the hours of 10am to 6:45pm.

The image below is the evaluated route.

The five mobile wireless broadband service providers evaluated are MTN, Globacom, 9Mobile, Airtel and Smile. The performance of the radio access networks of each service provider along each evaluated route, in comparison with the other service providers, is rated, using the following KPI weights: Connection Drop rate, 20%; Connection Setup Failure rate, 10%; Downlink Throughput distribution, 25%; Peak Downlink Throughput, 10%; Latency, 15% and LTE coverage, 20%.

 

SUMMARY

MTN and Airtel stand head and shoulders above the rest with regard to packet latency with MTN having lowest packet delay of all the networks. MTN and Glo have highest throughputs. Smile offers lowest throughput relative to available channel bandwidth. Airtel offers higher peak downlink throughput than Smile even though its channel bandwidth is half that of Smile.

Our goal is to help improve the quality of service experienced by the users of mobile telecommunication networks in Nigeria. A report containing our ranking and detailed RF Analysis is available for a fee.

We are also available to work with interested service Providers to get those issues resolved.
