Glo leads in June data acquisition


Globacom is leading on data subscription acquisition for the month of June 2016, reports ITRealms.

A press statement made available to ITRealms by officials of Globacom, says the Mobile Network Operator (MNO) is on top position in the area of acquisition of new internet subscribers in the month of June.

The telco said that the latest figures released by the industry regulator, the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) for the month of June, indicated that Globacom closed the month with a total of 26,628,065 internet subscribers up from 26,355,391 in May.

This, ITRealms gathered, showed that the operator added a total of 272,674 new subscribers during the month. 

The telco says the figure represents a quantum leap from the total number of subscribers gained between April and May. Glo recorded 49,124 new subscribers in April.

The closest operator to Globacom is Airtel, which recorded a total of 17,325,423 subscribers in June, up from 17,280,089 in May. In essence, Airtel added 45,334 new internet subscribers.

On the other hand, Etisalat had a total of 15,253,513 internet subscribers at the end of June, down from the 15,508,024 internet subscribers the operator had in May, effectively losing a total of 254,511 internet subscribers in one month.

MTN Nigeria on its part recorded a total of 32,974,177 in June, down from the 33,108,786 internet subscribers that the operator had in May. Consequently, MTN lost a total of 134,609 within a month.
In all, the industry gained a total of 318, 008 new internet subscribers, out of which Globacom alone had 272,674 new internet subscribers.   

Therefore, Globacom claimed responsibility for about 86 percent of the total internet subscriber acquisitions in the industry in the month of June.

ITRealms recalls that Globacom has recorded in the area of acquisition of new internet subscribers may not be unconnected with a broad bouquet of innovative products and services the company has introduced in recent times. 

Among the offerings currently thrilling subscribers is Jollific8 which gives subscribers eight times the va`lue of their recharge. It is widely acclaimed to be the best value for money in the industry.
