All major mobile phone service networks are available in Tanke but with varying degree of reliability and usability. It is usual to occasionally experience network outage for some of the mobile phone service providers. It is also common for different networks to be more stable and reliable in different locations of the city at different times.

if you are planning a visit to this city, you should consider having multiple SIM cards preferably for all the mobile service providers, since you can't tell which will be more stable and reliable at a time in your location during your visit. And if you will risk not having any of them, you might be better off not risking the MTN network, because, from indications, it seem to perform well than the others, though its rates may be high and its offers and services might be stringent, but you are less likely to be concerned of erratic voice and data connection compared to others. The various broadband cellular network available include 2G, 3G, and 4G networks. And unlike many other cities in the country, there is a wider coverage of the 4G network in most locations in the city.

One of the service providers is Glo (or Globacom), which boasts of fast network speed for internet browsing activities, but that might not be enjoyable in some locations in Tanke. Airtel is fairly good for all you might need, but you might experience network outage most times, the rates and network stability is satisfactory. And 9mobile usually also performs well in internet browsing speed but not without locational limitations.
