A+ Gprs Router Vs Azsky Gprs Dongle(Who is the Winner and Which Should you Buy)

To start this objective discourse, i will use this medium to tell all those who have renewed their azsky dongles with a genuine service account not to panic. Yes i know that as at yesterday, 14-07-2013 around 11:00pm Nigerian Time all azsky products like G1, G1+ G2 and Xman went off completely while products from other manufacturers like liberty, A+ Tlink, eclink, srt5000 and the likes are working. The reasons it went offline is because i. They need to fix the issue of mytv channels not showing, ii. they need to fix the issue of some channels not showing on dstv so their is no way they can do all this if don’t temporally shutdown their servers. However as i speak, in Nigeria here, azsky has started working however, you may need to use etisalat sim to power it in Nigeria for the main time till all is resolved.

g1 vs a+ which is better


Now back to the topic of discussion, well there are dongles and their are dongles. infact we have different dongles promising different functions, features and performance. But i just want to compare the two best gprs dongles that we currently have in africa and for africa talking about A+ GPRS Router and Azsky G1+ GPRS Adapter . The fight for supremacy is like that of lion and leopard, iOS and Android e.t.c… It is simply different tales for different folks and its two side of the same coin. I will be objective about this because none of the company paid me do do anything.


If you are a mobile phone geek like me, you must have known that before the arrival of Android phones, iOS was already overshadowing symbian and windows mobile. But when android arrives, it corrected the mistakes of iOS(e.g bluetooth) and improve on the OS error of symbian(e.g laggness) to make a unique mobile operating system.

Liberty star decoders arrived earlier than other manufacturers but they couldn’t sustain the competition due to their lack of support and upgrade. when Azsky came in it performed wonderfully well and even save us during the last football season when most products where offline. However they become to relaxed and their performance dropped people started haveing problems like sim not working, annoying freezing e.t.c. A+ took advantage of this and launch its oen product with the following edge over azsky;

  • A+ Came by default with a sticker on their product specifying the expiry date.
  • Right from launch till the present moment A+ opens more channels than Azsky
  • Sim issues is minimal it supports and works with all simcard as promised
  • A+ freezes less than Azsky
  • When A+ is down, it is restored quicker than G1+


  • Though this is being address, but as i speak , their is no support yet for A+ and no tools for renewing an expired account meaning use it while it last. But as soon as there is a way out, i will keep you updated. you don’t need to worry over this because, as at the time of writing this, no A+ dongle out there has expired.
  • A+ Doesn’t work with 2g nework, it only work with 3g


  • G1+ is always there when others are out it may be showing only a few channels, but those few channels are the very important once in times of trouble. they will never totally let you down
  • Azsky Supports is outstanding, they always act on time and as at when due they have a listening ears.
  • Theirs is a project they are launching now with the sales of their new service account which will make their product to be the best. it will make it open more channels, and be more stable.
  • G1+ Works with 2g and 3g networks


  • Some azsky products like g1 and xman still struggles with simcard i mean they still kind of select some simcards.


If you have the money you can buy both, if you are daring and ambitious with little cash to throw around buy A+, If you want to be in the middle and be neutral, then buy azsky G1+.

If all of a sudden your A+ dongle just net off, and other A+ dongles around you are showing, don’t panick your a+ has not expired yet, all you need is my special trick to revive it you don’t need a service account now, you only need a service account for a+ starting from next year

  21. But it was not like this with the old account, the issue of power never arose, na wa for them o

  22. What really is the cause of the ireegularity

  23. Goodday lemmy, what the hell is wrong with azsky, i would like to know which one is more stable, am tired of this G1

    • A+ is more stable for now. but g1 is blazing really hot on canalsat as i speak. am afraid this irregularities of dstv with azsky will continue for the next 14days but canalsat will be working fine till then. so sports and movie lovers, move to canalsat now.

  24. Pls Mr lem my a+ is not working since I bought it a day b4 yesterday wat could b d problem. Cos I’m confused

  25. My g1+ green light is permanently on.what is the problem sir

    • change the channel now

    • if the green LED keep on without any blink,it means the RS232 port Y4 communication between your receiver and G1+ have problem. normally idea your receiver did not activate Y4 function or the RS232 port have hardware problem.

      when server connection OK and RS232 twin protocol works OK,the Green LED should keep blinking.

  26. Hi mr morgan pls my box worked few hours dis mornin and nw is off wat could be d problem tnx bro

  27. I like to know because my G1 AZSKY stop working and sometime the Green light cme and sometime but i dont know what is the problem, am from Gh

  28. gud day,does the powa failure also affect A plus.and also does A plus surport Glo sim

  29. I have AZsky g1 it blink only orange light after it shows red,when g1+ was not working yesterday my g1 work and i did not load a new accont on it but it did not open ss select while g1+ open it,what might be d cause?.

  30. Ok thanks for the response, that means its general right?

  31. My azsky stopped working this afternoon, what could be wrong, it blinks normal orange but does not open any channel

  32. Yes, the best is to have the two, A+, and Azsky. so that ( the dstv ) will not lost to you.

  33. nalucha says:
