Glo 4G LTE Network Is Now Available In Lagos, Abuja, PHC, Jos, Yola, Zaria, Benin, Warri and Eket

Glo has unveiled its 4G LTE services in many states and cities in Nigeria including but not limited to Lagos, Abuja, Port-Harcourt, Yola, Jos, Benin, Zaria, Warri, Eket and other states which will get the services soon.

At a press conference to announce the launch of the service, Globacom’s Head of 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.”

Shonibare noted that the Glo 4G LTE services crosses across aspects of social, education and business life and would therefore, make life more interesting, comfortable and enjoyable for Nigerians.

“Our subscribers today already enjoy downloading music, video and movie contents. They are also streaming contents on their phones and other devices. But the new Glo 4G LTE network offers subscribers a significantly improved experience. The video and voice quality in video calls on different applications like Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Viber etc is a lot clearer while the picture quality is crisper, and the transmission is faster,” he stated.

The word "LTE" in 4G LTE is an acronym for Long Term Evolution, and it's a 4G wireless communications standard developed by the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) that's designed to provide up to 10x the speeds of 3G networks for mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets, netbooks, notebooks and wireless hotspots.

Before now, we already have several 4G services from different providers like Ntel, Smile, MTN and InterC although Etisalat 4G LTE is still in ghost mode as of the time of this publication.

The Glo 4G is now live in 9 Major Cities. They are;
Lagos, Abuja, PHC, Jos, Yola, Zaria, Benin, Warri and Eket. The network will hit other cities as time goes on.

To check if the network is available in your city, dial *777# and select 4G LTE coverage.

Globacom also released data plans for their 4G network and I have listed them below;
1.6GB for N500 (7 Days Validity)
3.2GB for N1000 (30 days validity)
7.5GB for N2000 (30 days)
10GB for N2500 (30 days validity)

Oh yes I am aware of the sluggish and slow network delivered by Globacom but they are really setting the pace when it comes to affordable data plans. What they need to do is drastic improvement on their network and they will be the most loved and cherish data network in Nigeria.

Having said that, 4G LTE promises a much better network with amazing speed so it's time to upgrade if you are still using a smartphone with no 4G LTE support, the train 🚂 is leaving you behind ooo. 3G is gradually becoming outdated just like 2G network.
