MTN is the ‘Best in test’ in Nigeria, according to a German engineering consulting and services firm, umlaut’s report.

MTN Nigeria received this award from umlaut, an Accenture company “for adding something on top in Nigeria and reaching an overall score of 698 dots in mobile network benchmarking out of 1000”.

According to umlaut’s report, which comprised data collected for a period of 24 weeks, 462 million samples were taken, 81.7% of the build-up area and 82.8% of the population area were covered.

MTN Nigeria achieved the highest overall score among competitors and this claim went beyond the ‘Best in test’ award, the telecommunications giant also received the award of ‘Best rated user download speed’ and ‘Best rated latency’.

This year has been a great one for MTN Nigeria as it has climbed milestones beyond previous wins and has made tremendous impacts in the lives of many.

Included in its ever-increasing user-base, the telecom innovator recorded 1.3 million fintech subscribers in the first quarter of 2022, organised the Media Innovation programme where it spent over N300 million to help practitioners to stay relevant and scale, and the Y’ello Care programme themed ‘Empowering Communities to Drive Economic Recovery’ to upskill local communities with digital skills and training required to boost the economy at large.


On the other hand, umlaut is focused on providing services and solutions to the telecommunication industry, ensuring security is standard and weaknesses are identified.

For over two decades, the company has designed, managed, monitored, tested and optimised the world’s telecommunication infrastructure.
