Glo presents SIMs to auction winners

Remmy Nweke

Second National Operator (SNO) has presented SIMS to winners of its auction of special numbers in its newly acquired prefix, 0807, which is expected to add about 10 million new subscribers into the network.

This is coming as Globacom launched its Fantastic Four SIM pack in Lagos.

The SIM which has a duplicate made of 18 karat gold was presented by the Chief Operating Officer (COO), Mr. Mohammed Jameel in a ceremony in Lagos.

He said that the present karat gold was to act as memorable to owners of the 0807 special numbers.

The 20 auctioned Glo lines on 0807, it was gathered that the entire lines was sold out.

Mr. Jameel noted that in few days to come, during the anniversary of the SNO, “we have smashed conventions on all fronts, with our subscribers base getting near the 9 million mark.”

According to him, it is projected that Glo subscribers would exceed the 10 million mark by October this year based on current trends.

“With this enviable record, our 0805 numbering plan has been exhausted and in order to effectively provide for the phenomenal growth on our network, the acquisition of another numbering plan became inevitable,” he said.

The COO further said that the sales of the 0807 SIM packs have commenced in all the retail outlets of the company as well as dealer’s locations nationwide.

Also, Globacom used the opportunity to launch its new product, Fantastic Four SIM pack, a prepaid package in which a group of friends or members of a family could obtain four Glo Classic lines with sequential telephone numbers.

Mr. Jameel explained that the Fantastic Four comes as a new dimension in the allocation of special telephone numbers in the country in giving its subscribers the opportunity to acquire numbers.
