One 4G LTE provider name missing there is AIRTEL NIGERIA. Their yet to roll out their 4G LTE service in Nigeria which is a little bit surprising considering the fact that they are the second biggest internet service provider in Nigeria we are expecting more from them.

None of these 4G LTE service providers has made their 4G LTE service coverage available to all thet 36 states, so you might just be unlucky if you find out that none of them work in your location.

DO I NEED A NEW SIM BEFORE I CAN ENJOY 4G In Nigeria?

It depends on the network you are currently using, if you are using MTN you need to go to the nearest MTN shop to you so your SIM card can be activated for  MTN 4G LTE network, the same is applicable to GLO.  For ETISALAT you don't need to activate or get a new SIM, once your phone is 4G LTE enabled you can start enjoying Etisalat 4G network in Nigeria.
