Next generation network, Globacom, has been called upon to extend the services of its recently launched 4G LTE network to other cities across the country to enable more subscribers enjoy the benefits of the advanced network.
A cross section of Glo subscribers who made this call advised the company to extend the 4G LTE service to other parts of the country especially their respective home towns and villages so that they can relish the experience whenever they travel home. They also commended Globacom’s quality of the service and its pacesetting role in 4G LTE nationwide coverage in Nigeria.
A Bureau De Change operator in Zone 4, Wuse, Abuja, Maniru Saminu who stated that he has abandoned all other alternatives described the Glo 4G LTE as the best, adding that it is the fastest internet connection in the country.
“I really appreciate Glo 4G service. It is very fast. I am enjoying the internet service, I do not experience delays doing streaming and downloads. I also do my internet banking transactions with ease,” Saminu said.
According to him, he has started encouraging his colleagues to move over to the Glo to enjoy better quality of service offered by the Glo 4G network.
“I even gave my old Samsung S7 Edge phone to one of my friends to use and he has subscribed. The second person will soon subscribe. I want to urge Globacom to bring the service to Kano, my home state so we can enjoy it over there also,” said Saminu.
In the same vein, a Wuse 2, Abuja based Glo subscriber, Stephen Obembe, who recently ported to the Glo network commended Globacom for rolling out 4Gservices in Abuja. According to him “It’s been great. Glo 4G has been good, very good. I use a lot of data for my business and I am really satisfied with the service. I am very happy I ported to the Glo network.”
Also Titilayo Lawal, a fashion designer based in Adeniran Ogunsanya area of Surulere, Lagos applauded the Glo 4G LTE service. Titilayo said she decided to port to Glo network because she was not getting the right value for the money she was spending on data bundles in her former network.
She said her story has changed immediately she joined the Glo network. Describing the Glo 4G service as “impressive.” Titilayo added that: “It is good; it is very fast no matter the amount of attachment you are sending. I love the service.”
She therefore called on Globacom to extend the network to other locations as soon as possible for others to enjoy the benefits of Glo 4G LTE.
Globacom also assured customers who have upgraded to Glo 4G LTE network of efficient services that will stand the test of time.
“Glo LTE network is one of the very best you will find anywhere in the world. Apart from an expansive, nationwide state-of-the-art telecommunications infrastructure which our 4G LTE network is predicated on, it is also riding on the much sought-after spectrum band 28. This gives it a strong edge,” said the data masters through a press statement.
The company said its frequency band has excellent wide area coverage with wider bandwidth, data capacity and higher performance. “It also has much better indoor reception than other frequency bands because of unparalleled ability to penetrate building walls and similar obstacles”, the statement said.
Globacom said that it is working assiduously towards connecting more parts of the country to the 4G LTE network, urging subscribers to exercise patience. The company stated that subscribers will never experience interruptions even when they move out of Glo 4G LTE network coverage, adding that the configuration of the network has taken care of that.
“When a subscriber moves out of 4G LTE network coverage, our 3G or 2.5G network (depending on the subscriber’s location) automatically drops on the phone to ensure the subscriber continues to enjoy connectivity. Calls or browsing is never interrupted. You will only notice that the speed will drop to 3G or 2.5 G level, depending on the area. We are ramping up efforts to cover everywhere as soon as possible so that wherever our subscribers are, they can enjoy the same top notch quality” said the company.
About a hundred locations nationwide, including Lagos (Lekki, Ikoyi, Victoria Island, Ajah and Akoka in South West), Port Harcourt (Aba Road, Trans Amadi, Diobu, Old GRA and UNIPort, Warri, Eket and Benin in South South), Abuja (Maitama, Wuse, Asokoro, Garki/Central Business District and Airport Road, and Jos in North Central), Yola – ABTI (North East) and Zaria- ABU in North West are presently connected to the Glo 4G LTE network.
