Lagos is well wired up with a network of fibre optics cables criss-crossing the more urban areas of the state. A growing number of ISPs ride on these cables to deliver unlimited Home Internet service to residences across the state.

It goes by a variety of names: home wifi, home Internet, home fibre internet, etc. How it works is that a fibre optic cable delivers the service to your street, a cable connects the fibre to your home, where it terminates at a router. This router then broadcasts the Internet connect as a wireless connection (hotspot), to which you can connect your PC, smartphones, tablet, smart TV and any other device that requires an Internet connection.

With everyone having access to generous data plans from the mobile networks, is there are reason to subscribe to an unlimited Home Internet service? Are there any benefits?

Advantages of Unlimited Home Internet Service via Fibre Optics Cable

The top advantage of this service is that cable Internet is more reliable than wireless connections, as it is less susceptible to the weather. All other things being equal, a cable link will stay running regardless of dark, heavy, rainy weather.

Also, it is often without a data cap or throttling. While wireless networks tend to have a fair usage policy and speed throttle in place, fibre-based connections do not. Having understood these, let’s look at the available unlimited home Internet providers in Lagos.
