Here are a few Comments from those who participated in the community effort:

"The best ISP in Nigeria is Linkserve Limited". - David Ndemeno.

"MTN has touched many lives through their MTN foundation" - Azubuike, Godwin

"Starcomms is the best because since I have been using them, I have been enjoying it and I appreciate their way of upgrading". - Malik, Akeem

"I see ISPs as a necessary evil. It is very unfortunate that government has not really provided a sustainable environment for business to strive in this country. MTN, ZAIN are on the same level while GLO is ahead in terms of rendering good services" - Abiola Ola

"Why I choose Starcomms was that I have tried many networks and I realize that though with some their coverage is ok but it's expensive to me as a student". -David, Franca

"This is a tall order and outcome can be very misleading. What yardstick should I use - user experience, track record, responsiveness, latency, down-time, or what?" - Paul Abiodun Akanbi Oluwa

"IPNX is the service I use. It's ok. Their customer service is encouraging, update service good. service excellent based on the plan you chose to go for. IPNX Ltd for real". - Nosiru Adegbenga

"You guys are doing a fantastic and excellent job for the good people of Nigerians. You have touched the lives of millions of Nigerians through this medium. This should engender  constructive and healthy competition between the ISPs to really give us good service that will justify our payment" - Dele Adebayo.

"Visaphone is quite reliable flexible and customer friendly". - Olaleye, Lawoyin

"I am only familiar with 21st Century as we use it in my office. We are quite satisfied with their service" - Awonusi, Stephen

"Direct ON PC is very fast" - Bakare, ibrahim

"Of course "Best" varies from person to person. The strategic role ISPs play means we must collect opinions and information about them from time to time. You can't do without them. And a major problem we have in Nigeria is the absence of statistics that matter. Kudos!".  - Fred Okeke

"Good Better.............Globacom connection" - Ajala Caleb

"Thanks but I'm not choosing anybody. The ISPs are really not living up to our expectations. I believe that the NCC at this point in time needs to intervene to rescue Nigerians from exploitation under the guise of good services as it is often claimed".- Angela Okuta

"MTN is the best ISP in Nigeria. Also affordable and cheap to maintain. Their service is every where in Nigeria". - Godwin, Onyechi
