Glo-1 offers ISPs business package

Globacom has come up with a dedicated offer to members of Internet Service Providers (ISPs) in the country through the introduction of a business package by Glo 1.

This, the company said would avail more Nigerian cities to enjoy the benefits of ample internet bandwidth courtesy of Glo 1 international submarine cable.

This is coming on the heels of moves by the company to empower and encourage Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to extend their businesses to more major cities across the country.

Head of Glo 1, Folu Aderibigbe, said that Glo 1 would now offer internet bandwidth and extend help in setting up operations to all ISPs desiring to extend services to major cities where they do not currently have presence.

He noted that most of the ISPs in Nigeria at the moment operate mainly in Lagos alone or in few more cities mainly due to the huge capital expenditure involved in setting up operations in other cities and the unavailability of reliable bandwidth in those areas.

He explained that Globacom decided to address this problem by providing the required bandwidth in all the major cities and removing the burden of huge capital needed by the ISPs to start operations in all major cities where their services are needed.

Globacom, he said, is riding on its MPLS-VPN network spread across the country, has extended Glo1 services to all major cities in Nigeria, thus empowering ISPs to extend the benefits of bandwidth to the cities.

“This is in line with the commitment we made when we commissioned the cable last year to ensure that quality service is available in all parts of the country. We reassure Nigerians that Glo 1 offers 100% connection to prosperity,” he added.

Glo 1 which is the only optic fiber cable that connects United Kingdom directly from Nigeria has provided solution to the bandwidth capacity constraints in the West Africa region.

With its integration with Globacom’s 10,000km nationwide optic fibre cable, Glo 1 is able to give end-to-end connectivity, including last mile solutions, thus providing a one-stop shop for customers’ requirements.
