- Glo Subscribers Can Now Borrow Data
Globacom, on Tuesday, in Lagos, launched a new product, Glo Borrow Me Data, and boosted three other existing ones.
The network disclosed at a press conference, that the three repackaged products are Double Free Tomorrow, 11k/s for All and IDD Packs. He said Globacom was motivated to enhance the benefits of the three products because they became hugely successful.
With Glo Borrow Me Data, subscribers can borrow Data credit of up to 2GB whenever their data bundles are exhausted or in cases of unsuccessful subscription bundle activation due to low balance.
Globacom’s Head, Usage and Retention, Sola Arowogbadamu, explained that customers will be eligible to enjoy the service on the strength of how long they have been on the network as well as customers’ average monthly data usage.
Arowogbadamu said customers can subscribe to Borrow Me Data by dialing *321# after which they should follow the menu prompts. He added that this will enable the service to push real time Data credit to all eligible customers in line with the stipulated eligibility criterion. Consequent upon this, the customer will repay the Data credit whenever he replenishes his airtime.
With Double Free Tomorrow, customers get back 200% of any amount spent on calls, SMS or data today to use on all the platforms for free the following day. Under the re-packaged offer, Globacom will calculate all the value of airtime a customer expended in a day for internet services, phone calls and SMS, and credit the customer’s phone with double the value at the beginning of the following day.
The network disclosed that the bonus can be used for practically anything including browsing or calls and SMS to Glo and non-Glo lines and can equally be used for International calls to countries such as US, UK (fixed), Canada, China and India.
The Double Free Tomorrow offer is available to all existing and prospective prepaid customers on the Glo network and other subscribers who desire good value for money.
Arowogbadamu explained further, “if a subscriber on the Glo network uses N500 credit in a day on calls, SMS and data, Glo will give back N1,000 credit to the subscriber the very next day to call all networks, SMS and browse free”. The offer will be available as default for all new customers activating a Glo line.
The third offer, 11k/s for All, according to the company, is the most cost-effective prepaid plan in the Nigerian telecoms market today.
