You would most likely find a reliable coverage of the 2G/3G mobile networks in most locations in Afuze. Signal strength of 4G is relatively inadequate in the town, and you are less likely to experience network outage for any of the mobile phone service providers in any of the area. Bear in mind that different networks tend to be more stable and reliable in different locations of the city at different times, though all will almost perform satisfactory well in any location.

MTN, 9Mobile, Airtel (Zain) and GLO are all available service providers. So if you are planning a visit to Edo State, you might not have to be so much concerned about the service provider to choose from as they all are reasonably reliable.
