Glo again raises the bar in data segment with 4G LTE network

Poised to deepen its leadership in the data segment, Globacom has rolled out Nigeria’s first nationwide world-class mobile 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) network.

The telecommunications outfit rolled out the 4G network following a successful multi-dimensional test-run of the advanced network, thus making it the first provider to make the LTE services available across major cities of the country such as Lagos, Port Harcourt in Rivers State, Abuja in the Federal Capital City, Jos in Plateau State, Warri in Delta State, Eket in Akwa Ibom State, Benin City in Edo State, Yola in Adamawa State and Zaria in Kaduna State. Globacom said roll-out to other major cities of the country will happen in quick succession.

This major landmark will enable Globacom to offer its subscribers data intensive applications, adding that this will particularly be great news to individuals who consume huge volumes of data, as well as government and corporate organisations like banks, oil and gas companies, academic institutions and health institutions, which rely exclusively on seamless data transfer for their operations.

Speaking at the launch of the service, Globacom’s Head, Corporate Sales, Kamaldeen Shonibare, said “we are pleased to once again play a leading role in empowering Nigerians with world class data services, helping to close the digital divide. In the last one and a half years, the people of this great country have spoken repeatedly by making Globacom the largest data network in new subscriptions. The best we can do for our people who believe in us and made us their number one data network is to give them the best technology. What we are offering is the new speed of life”.

In addition to these, the company is also offering a brand new 4G LTE router which provides access to Ultra High Speed Internet and landline, with free SIM, 60Gb of shareable data valid for a month and free world-class content for a one-off fee of N31,000. For those who prefer MiFi, Globacom is bundling its 4G MiFi with free SIM, 60Gb of shareable data valid for one month and free world-class content for a one-off fee of N25,000.
