Globacom has disclosed a new data regime that has seen the value of its data plans increased by 100 per cent across board. The new data buddle is tagged “Data Overload” and is designed to give Nigerian subscribers access to the Internet like never before, according to the firm.
Analyzing the offer in Lagos, Globacom explained that the N1, 000 plans, which used to give the subscriber 1.5GB of data, now gives 2GB, while the N2, 000 plans which hitherto came with 3GB of data now has 6GB data. Subscribers will also receive 10GB of data when they subscribe to the N2, 500 plans instead of 5GB they used to receive before.
In addition, the new system of data plans delivers a whopping 12GB for just N3, 000 instead of 6GB data, which the plan used to offer. And for the N4, 000 data plan, the subscriber will now get 18GB instead of the old 9GB, while the N5,000 subscription will give the customer 24GB.
The new Data Overload is currently the most attractive as it offers the biggest data bundles for any price in the market. “As the data game-changer in the industry, we have decided to give our esteemed subscribers the most affordable data value on our super-fast network powered by the Glo 1 submarine cable.
Nigeria’s indigenous owned telecom company, Globacom, has rebranded its ongoing Overload promotion, increasing the instant bonus accredited to customers from 200 percent to 400 percent for any airtime recharge of N200 and above.
The Glo Overload promo, now known as Glo Overload Reloaded, which is billed to produce N120 million; Glo Overload was introduced together with four other mega offerings by Globacom late last year to reward its loyal subscribers and spice up the Yuletide and New Year celebrations.
All subscribers needed to do to be entitled to 200 percent bonus airtime were to recharge their phone with airtime of N200 denomination and above.
With the Glo Overload Reloaded Promo, a subscriber who recharges with N200 will automatically get a total value of N1000. Airtime recharge of N500 will give the subscriber a total of N2, 500 automatically; N1000 will give N5000; N2000 will give N10,000; and N5000 will give N25,000 value.
According to close source from the company, billions of naira worth of free airtime and data will be given out in the course of the promotion.
Globacom Nigeria said that subscribers will be able to use their main credit to call any network at any time of the day and the bonus airtime for Glo to Glo calls and SMS between 10pm and 8am, depending on the validity period of the recharge denomination, which ranges from three to 20 days.
Also under Glo Overload Reloaded, data subscribers are entitled to expanded benefits. Previously, Glo Overload gave subscribers 200 percent bonus data for new data plan or renewal from N2000 and above. For instance, a subscriber who paid for data plan subscription of N3000 got 4.5GB of data. However, with Glo Overload Reloaded, a subscriber gets 4.5GB of data for data plan subscription or renewal of N2, 500.
Globacom said that in addition to the enumerated benefits, subscribers on the Glo Overload Reloaded Promo platform will also have a chance to become one of the 120 millionaires that the promo is billed to produce while it lasts. Twenty winners have already emerged and their prizes of N1million each were presented to them, while 100 more are expected to be picked in the weeks ahead.
The Globacom executive called on subscribers across the country wishing to benefit from Glo Overload Reloaded to dial *200# on their phones just once to opt in. They will consequently be admitted to the promo platform and be able to enjoy all the promised benefits.
