Recently, I was checking out Tech videos on YouTube, and suddenly, I came across a video explaining how to make your Internet Speed Faster than normal using APN Settings… Funny enough, I actually needed it at the time because I had been having network issues for a while and I clicked on the video to see what it was all about.

Well, it worked! As shown in the video, I tried out the APN Settings, and my Internet connection became faster instantly after switching to the newly created APN. So, I decided to write an article on the APN Settings for Fast Internet Service anywhere in Nigeria. I’ll also be embedding the video I watched on YouTube for those who prefer a visual representation of things.

Before I get on with the custom APN Settings, let’s look at what APNs are? How you can change them and lastly how you set up the custom APN settings on your smartphone device.

What are APNs?

On mobile phones, an APN (Access Point Name) connects to the gateway between the local carrier’s network and the internet. The APN locates the IP address with which the device is recognized on the network, determines whether a private network is required, selects the appropriate security settings, and more.

For example, the APN for MTN is for 2G, 3G, 4G, and 4G LTE devices and the account name for MTN is commonly MTN WAP or MTN WEB.

Different APN Settings Configuration Nodes

APN Type: MMS, WAP, WEB, Generic, and sup are the five APN types.

MMSC (Multimedia Messaging Service): This is only important when you’re using MMS. It is a very important requirement for most virtual network operators using MMS.

Proxy: Some carriers use the Proxy settings to establish a connection between the network and the Internet. It is very similar to the proxy on a computer.
