Glo in fight to finish with launch of ‘Glo Data Revolution’

Indications are seriously beginning to emerge that with the latest unveiling of Data Revolution by leading national carrier and grandmasters of data, Globacom, some Internet Services Providers (ISPs) who may not stand the heat in the kitchen may go down soon.

It further means that subscribers on the network and millions who may likely be attracted by the offers are in for bumpa data season as the company has once again blazed the trail in empowering Nigerians with data empowerment.

Business recalls that  the launch of the Glo Data Revolution (GDR) was done alongside the unveiling of an exclusive partnership with iflix, the world’s leading entertainment services for emerging markets, which gives the teeming subscribers of the telecoms firm, 60 days of unlimited access to the world’s best television programmes, series, movies, cartoons and more on their devices.

Giving insights during the launch in Lagos, the Regional Director, Planning and Technical, Mr. Sanjib Roy said “The new offer gives both new and existing subscribers who renew their subscriptions before the expiration up to 4GB of data for just N1,000. This 4GB data, for example, translates to about 4,000 pages of web browsing”.

“In the same vein, the 12.5GB is given for a N2,500 data bundle. This, for instance, could be used for 250 hours of content broadcast. Just as subscribers stand to gain 24GB for N4,000 and a massive 30GB for N5,000. The 30GB for N5,000 can enable the subscriber to enjoy videos for over 600 hours, for instance.

“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 for example. For N500, the customer gets a whopping 2GB of data, which the subscribers can use to do 10 days of unlimited chatting, if need be.

Roy explained that the new bundle offers are unprecedented and the biggest thing in Nigeria’s telecom history, adding that “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”.

On the Glo-iflix partnership, which is available on the Glo Café platform, Roy said that beyond giving subscribers of the telecoms firm, 60 days of unlimited access to the world’s best television programmes, series, movies, cartoons and more on their devices, after the 60 days, the Glo subscribers will get access at a specially discounted price of N100 per month only. Subscribers need to send “Buzz” to 105 to access the iflix service.
