[Nigeria] Glo subscribers to get 4G MiFi with bumper free data
Globacom has announced an offer that benefits its teeming subscribers. The bundle offer comprises the network’s mini router, Glo MiFi, with 16 gigabytes of data for N16,000. In effect, the MiFi is as good as being given out free of charge, considering the worth of the free data bundle, Globacom stated.
The 4G MIFI can connect up to 15 devices, including Smartphones, tablets, laptops, desktops and the like, all at once. The Glo MiFi also adapts itself to offices and events venues, being able to beam the Glo 4G wireless internet signals over a wide expanse of space.
The company explained that upon activation “you will get the 16GB and it will be spread over 12 months”. A further advantage of the Glo 4G MiFi is the power of Glo’s 4G network which comes with high speed internet service backed up by Glo1, the company’s transatlantic submarine cable.
The Glo MiFi data bundle is part of the company’s latest campaign to give the subscriber the unfair advantage in data. It comes also at a time that the network has renewed its commitment to continue giving its subscribers the best data bargain in the industry.
Announcing a new price regime for its data packages recently, the company said it maintains the best data rates in the industry when compared with competition.
“Glo offers the most lucrative data plans thereby still maintaining superb advantage to its prospective and existing subscribers on both 3G and 4G, ” the statement reads. “We are ensuring that customers still enjoy the unfair advantage which gives them the privilege of browsing, chatting, streaming, downloading, uploading and lots more in the data space. These data plans are simply unbeatable,” it concluded.
In the new data price regime, in addition to the base data bundle, which is already above market standards for every amount subscribed, all subscribers will also have an extra 25% as bonus for those who renew their data plans before expiration.
This means that for new subscribers and those who renew before expiration of their plans, a N100 subscription, for instance, will fetch a total of 100MB; a N200 will get 262MB; a N500 will get 1GB and a N 1,000 will get 2GB. Also N2,000 will attract a 4.5GB data bundle; a N2500 subscription will attract 7.2GB data bundle. All figures include the 25% bonus.
For big data users, Globacom has equally attractive bundles. For instance, it offers 12.5GB for a N4,000 recharge; 15.6GB for a N5,000 subscription, while a N10,000 subscription will fetch a whopping 32.5GB. For N20,000, the subscriber will have as much as 78.75GB. In addition to the unmatched data volumes, the data plans by Glo are the most comprehensive in the industry as all categories of subscribers have a wide category of plans to choose from, ranging from N25 to N20,000 bundle.
Customers will still enjoy free YouTube streaming between 1 a.m. and 5.30 a.m. on data plans from N500 and above; while customers on data plans from N2,000 will have unlimited access to over 10,000 hours of movies from iFlix.
The company called for new customers to opt for Glo data and buy any plan of choice by dialing *777# or by visiting http://.hsi.glo.com . The data plans are also available on e-top-up channels and Glo Café App. The network also urged existing customers to renew their data plans before expiration in order to continue to enjoy the unbeatable rates.
