Nigeria’s Grandmasters of data, Globacom, on Monday launched new data plans and unveiled a sole partnership with iflix, the world’s leading entertainment services for emerging markets.
The products are the biggest offer ever to data subscribers in the country.
Globacom said at the launch of the super-size offer, which is aptly tagged the New Data Revolution at the Mike Adenuga Towers in Lagos on Monday, that the new offer gives an unfair advantage to its prospective and existing subscribers who renew their data subscriptions before expiration on both 3G and 4G to enjoy unmatched data packages.
According to the Regional Director, Planning and Technical, Globacom, Mr. Sanjib Roy, the new offer avails both new and existing subscribers who renew their subscriptions before expiration up to 4GB of data for just N1,000. The 4GB data, for instance, gives about 4,000 pages of web browsing.
In the same vein, 12.5GB is given for a N2,500 data bundle which could be used for 250 hours of content broadcast while subscribers stand to gain 24GB for N4,000 and a massive 30GB for N5,000. With the 30GB for N5,000, subscribers can enjoy videos for over 600 hours.
He further explained that for small plans, new subscribers and those who renew with N100 subscription will have a 90MB bundle; while for N200, they will get 250MB with which they can send 400 emails. With N500, the customer receives a whopping 2GB of data, which can be used to do 10 days of unlimited chatting, if the need arises.
Roy also disclosed that the new bundle offers are unprecedented and the biggest thing in Nigeria’s telecom data market so far adding, “never has the subscriber to any network in Nigeria had it so big and so good. All you need to do is get on the Glo data network and stay on by continuing to renew your subscription to enjoy the benefits that give you the unfair advantage over other data users”.
The Glo–iflix Partnership, he said, is to give its subscribers 60 days of unlimited access to the world’s best television programmes, series, movies, cartoons and more on their devices. Roy added that after the initial 60 days, Glo customers will get access at a specially discounted price of N100 per month only. Subscribers need to send “Buzz” to 105 to gain access to the iflix service on Glo Café .
iflix offers subscribers the most extensive selection of iconic, critically-acclaimed TV series and fan-favourite films both internationally and locally available in the region, including hit titles such as The Big Bang Theory, Suits, The flash, Arrow, Hercules, Mission Impossible, as well as highly anticipated Bollywood hits ABCD, Chennai Express, Phantom, and PK. On the local front, iflix offers such Nollywood titles as Head Gone, Jenifa’s Diary, The visit, Bukas and Joints and much more.
Added to all these, Globacom also gives subscribers who recharge up to N500 and above free YouTube streaming from 1am to 5.30am. Youtube is a popular video-sharing site that allows users to upload, view, rate, share, add to favorites, report, comment on videos. To enjoy this, a subscriber only needs to dial*777# to buy a data plan to activate the services.
