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 network.

What is APN?

APN simply means Access Point Name. This is a requirement on the network for all data users. It is your gateway to access the web on the Airtel Network. Your phone won’t connect to the internet if your APN is either entered incorrectly or missing.

What is Airtel’s APN?

Airtel’s 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.
