Airtel Rolls Out Internet Settings For Mobile Devices

AdewaleJun 25, 20139min

From time to time, people want to know how to activate Airtel Internet service on their phones.

To have access to the internet on your mobile phones and tablets or other data enabled devices, you will have to ensure your APN settings are configured correctly on the Airtel 3.75G network.

APN simply means Access Point Name. This is a requirement on the network for all data users. It is your gateway to accessing the web on the Airtel Network. Our APN is internet.ng.airtel.com. If your phone/device has no APN settings or incorrect APN settings, you would be unable to access the web.

Typically, once you insert the Airtel SIM, the settings are automatically configured. However, a need to configure manually might occur. This varies from device to device.
