Customers across the Lagos metropolis are reporting widespread outages to their Swift 4G LTE service across the Lagos metropolis.  Swift hasn’t yet explained why this is so and customers took to Twitter to lament their inability to use the service this morning.

The service outage reportedly started during last night’s rain and has not been restored to many areas.  Swift has recently been dealing with a number of complaints from customers about their “4G LTE” service which has reportedly slowed down significantly since launch.  In spite of this, Swift seems to be the dominant consumer internet brand in the Lagos market.  Could the launch of Smile Networks in Lagos may threaten that dominance in the face of these challenges?  Time will tell.
