The unique data plans and unmatched quality of internet service of the next generation network, Globacom, have elicited commendation from the company’s subscribers across Nigeria.
A cross section of the subscribers who spoke to our correspondents on the recent industry reports which confirmed Glo as the preferred network for new internet users, spoke elegantly of the speed, reliability of connectivity and the unrivaled value offered by the network’s data plans which have given it an edge above others.
Alhaji Opeyemi Aminu, an engineer based in Lagos, while commending Glo’s data services, said, “I ported from another network to Glo a few months ago because of my dissatisfaction with my previous service provider. I am now enjoying my internet service with Glo. The speed is o.k. and the connectivity is steady and reliable”.
Another Lagos based subscriber, Gbenga Oyegoke, who works in a bank at Shoprite Mall, Lekki, said, “Really, Glo has been good. The data packages are quite user-friendly and the data rates are affordable. I ported to Glo from another network about three months ago, and I can say I have been enjoying the data services. I enjoy the uninterrupted connectivity even when I am on the road.”
A Lagos-based journalist, Funke Ishola, who narrated her experience on the Glo network said it had been very amazing. “Glo internet service has been awesome. I only switched to Globacom about a year ago because the other network I was using was becoming a burden. I am a heavy user, it was becoming too expensive and I was not enjoying good service. But the experience with Glo is different”, she said.
According to her, “another thing I enjoy is the hotspot connection. I can easily connect to my laptop via the hotspot. The world is now global and people rely on the internet to keep abreast of developments. Being a journalist, I rely heavily on the internet to do my job. Glo has given me the leverage I need to excel in my job. Glo has very friendly and affordable data packs and the connectivity is superb. I send my stories with ease from anywhere, unlike my colleagues who have to wait to get to the office because of the unreliability of the network they are using.”
On why she joined the Globacom network just last year, Ishola declared, “I can say I was blind then, now I can see. I have tasted the other networks, now I know the difference.”
Ene Sharon who resides in Bompai region of Kano, Said, “Glo data rate is quite attractive. I also enjoy the quality of the network especially during the night when I have time to do my downloads and use the social media.”
Another company executive, Yohanna Yakubu, who lives in Kano Municipal area, said he is happy to be a Glo data subscriber because the company’s data packs are quite innovative and affordable.
Esther Balogun, a business tycoon, who also resides in the Kano Municipal area concurred: “I also use the other three networks and I must say I am very pleased with the Glo tariff plans. Glo is the best because I get more gigabytes for less money.”
In the south-south part of the country, the response is the same. Samson Pepple, a school principal in Onne, Rivers State, said, “I enjoy the Glo tariff more, compared to competition.” He encouraged his staff to use Glo data packs because they are “the best when it comes to data offering.”
Deima Abibo, Assistant Commissioner of Police (Operations), Uyo, Akwa Ibom, said he is delighted to be on the Glo network. He noted that he is a heavy user of Glo data offerings, and wants Glo to continue to deliver more data options and offerings to beat competition in Nigeria.
