Glo introduces HSI on handsets, tablets

National telecoms operator, Globacom has launched new pocket-friendly High Speed Internet (HIS) plans and tailored to benefit the ever increasing numbers of users of handsets, smart phones and tablets across the country.

Officials of Globacom in a press statement made available to ITRealms Online and endorsed by the public relations manager, Mr. Bode Opesietan, noted that the new HSI plans, offer lower rates and the most generous data volumes.

According to him, this offer would now make it possible for Glo subscribers to use their data enabled devices to browse the internet, stream audio and video clips, download applications and chat with their family and friends at even more affordable rates.

He said that the newly introduced plans are Glo Instant Surf, One Week and Always Micro which are suitable for handsets and Always Macro which is suitable for both handsets and tablets.

Glo Instant Surf, for instance, he said, offers the subscriber a data usage of 10MB at for just N100 for a validity period of 24 hours, while the One Week plan will give the subscriber 50MB of data usage for a validity period of seven days at the cost of N400 only.

Always Micro, on the other hand, offers 200MB of data download which is valid for a period of one month (30 days) at the cost of N1,000 only, while Always Macro will give the subscriber 1GB of data for 30 days at the cost of N3,000 only. The Always Macro plan is available for users of handsets as well as smart phones and tablets such as the Samsung Galaxy Tab and the Apple I-pad.

Other existing plans have also been reviewed to give more value to subscribers. These include the Pay As You Use rate which has been reviewed down from 15 kobo per kilobyte to 5 kobo per kilobyte, Always Micro which offers a higher data download of 200MB at the cost of N1,000 per month and Always Min which now gives subscribers a massive 3GB of data downloads instead of the previous 1.5GB at the same cost of N5,000 per month.

The new affordable rates and bigger data downloads were made possible with the coming on stream of Glo1, Globacom’s high speed submarine cable which is changing the face of telecom in Nigeria and several other countries across the continent.

With a capacity of over 2.5 terabits, he said, Glo 1 is already providing unprecedented high speed internet services to Nigerians and making telecom services much faster, more reliable and cheaper for consumers.

“With Globacom’s increasing coverage of the country with its High Speed Internet service and expansion of its access network capacity, even more benefits lie ahead for Glo subscribers,” he said.

Explaining that to enjoy the great value offered by the new plans, he said, subscribers only need to enter the USSD code *127*51# for Instant Surf, *127*52# for the One week plan, *127*53# for Always Micro, *127*54# for Always Macro or *127*2# for Always Min and they will immediately be subscribed to the plan of their choice.
