Globacom’s Zonal Business Coordinator, Adebola Omoboya, has said that the recently launched Glo Free Data Day Offer “is a unique opportunity to enjoy a robust calling and browsing experience on the Glo network.” He told his audience at the Lagos launch that the new product would give opportunity to subscribers to do so much more on the internet by browsing free of charge for a whole day:
“We appreciate the essence of the internet in today’s world. We are through this product empowering our customers in an unprecedented way in their business, social and educational pursuits. Imagine your telecommunications solutions provider dashing you a whole 200MB to browse the net without inhibition! This is what total telecommunications solutions provider, Globacom has brought to its teeming subscribers with its newly launched ‘Free Data Day’ offer.”
…. He said for a telecommunications outfit, which has serenaded its millions of subscribers for 14 years since 2003 when it pioneered the per second billing regime, Globacom has not relented in its bid to satisfy its subscribers by giving them 200MG free of charge after seven successive days of data usage on the network. This means that customers enjoy free data for a whole day when they meet the voice and/or data usage threshold within seven days. The offer is open to all prepaid subscribers.
To have access to a Free Data Day, Omoboya explained, “subscribers are expected to spend N250 or more on calls within seven days to a free data day or spend at least N150 on calls and use a minimum of 100MB of data within seven days to the free data day from any or a combination of methods such as Pay as you use, purchase of data plan and usage from existing data plan.
“Customers are subsequently notified when they have qualified and that they do not need to dial any code to opt in or subscribe to any platform before enjoying the benefits. When a customer qualifies for the offering, he would be able to enjoy free data usage throughout that day, and the fair usage policy will be applicable.”
But, this was not the only freebie from Globacom as another product tagged the “Glo Welcome Back” offer, gives customers who have not used the Glo network in the last 30 days free N6000 credit when they recharge their lines was also launched same day.
Glo’s Chief of Sales said the company remained committed to empowering millions of its subscribers at all times. The launch of the new products was to enrich customer’s experience on the Glo network and give them the best value for their subscriptions.
The “Glo Welcome Back” can also be used to browse, send SMS and make calls to Glo customers. Subscribers are required to make a recharge of between N100 and N1,000 to access the free N6,000 airtime.
“For example, a recharge of N100 gives the subscriber N600 bonus airtime which is deducted from the FREE N6,000. The bonus N600 is made up of N500 for Voice and N100 for data with 50MB data volume. If the same subscriber makes a second recharge of N500, he gets a bonus credit of N3,000 made up of N2,500 Voice credit and N500 data bonus with 250MB data volume. This is deducted from the balance of N5400 left of the N6,000 FREE Airtime. The subscriber will now have N2,400 left in the FREE Airtime account which can be accessed when the next recharge is made,” he said.
A subscriber whose first recharge is N1,000 gets the full FREE Airtime of N6000 instantly, and this comprises N5,000 voice bonus and N1,000 data bonus with data volume of 500MB. Recharges above N1,000 gives the same N6,000 Free credit. All the bonus credits have a 30-day validity period.
Omoboya: “The subscriber will receive an SMS notification when the bonus airtime is credited. To confirm the balance, the subscriber can dial #106#”. Calls from this bonus are charged at 65k/second, SMS at N4, while data is charged at Flexi rate of N1/Mb when Welcome Back bonus data bundle has been exhausted.
“We are more committed than ever to provide subscribers with the best value-for-money by making our products and services accessible to our existing and new subscribers.” He called on Nigerians to make utmost use of the new products, assuring them of excellent services at all times.
He insisted: “Glo currently remains a leader in the telecoms sector with over 30 million subscribers including multinational corporations, decision makers in the public and private sector, students, artisans and those in rural communities connected to our network where they are enjoying access to high quality products and affordable telecom services.”
