3G/4G in Ethiopia

I'm planning a trip to Addis Ababa and Harar in a few months. This will be my second time in Africa (spent 10 days in Senegal this last January). I'm planning on getting a sim card as soon as I land so I can work while I travel. How's the quality of the 3G/4G network there (specially in Addis Ababa)? Is it fast enough for Skype/Magic Jack, etc?

I am staying in Addis for 45 days and after arrival I bought Huawei mobile wifi and 30000 GB in Ethio Telecom shop. For now everything is working good. I can chat on skype and I am also using some other programs that are working just fine.

4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) network in Addis Ababa is reliable.
