This report concentrates on mobile Radio Frequency performance in the LTE networks on two of the leading mobile broadband service providers in Nigeria; Globacom and MTN.

The ranking of these service providers was based on the overall performance of their radio access networks along the driven route. In this ranking, RRC Connection Drop Rate carries half of the weight (50%), RRC Connection Setup Failure Rate carries 20%, Throughput carries 15% and Latency carries 15%.

With the above weighting, MTN came first while Globacom became second. Globacom has the best coverage and capacity. It ranked second because of very high Connection Setup failure rate along the driven route.

Our goal is to identify RF deployment issues that have negative impact on the quality of service experienced by the users of the network. 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.
