New APN, Username, Password


In this post, we would be discussing how to set-up your mobile device (phone or tablet) for browsing irrespective of the network that you are using whether it is Airtel, Etisalat, Glo or MTN. Most mobile devices these days usually receive Over-The-Air (OTA) 3G/GPRS settings. This happens when the SIM on your phone is a newly-inserted SIM. That is, when you insert your SIM for the first time into your device or when you change from one SIM to another. However, there are times that your device may not receive OTA settings or the one sent by your service provider may not work for you. In these instances, you would need to manually set-up your device.

Shown below are the settings for each network

AIRTEL

APN: internet.ng.airtel.com
USERNAME: internet
PASSWORD: internet

ETISALAT

APN: etisalat
USERNAME: <Leave empty>
PASSWORD: <Leave empty>

GLO

APN: gloflat
USERNAME: flat
PASSWORD: flat

MTN

APN: web.gprs.mtnnigeria.net
USERNAME: web
PASSWORD: web
