Nigeria’s first indigenous telecommunications network, Globacom, on Wednesday introduced 125 per cent free data for all subscribers to mark its 15th anniversary.
Unveiling the product, named ‘Ogasim’, Glo Regional Chief Marketing Officer, Ashok Isran, said customers would be getting 125 per cent free data for every subscription for the next four months.
“It is the master of all Sims in the country today.
“The value to be delivered and derived from Ogasim could either be gifted or shared as deemed fit by the subscriber, so it is very flexible product.
According to him, Globacom is the only operator with a submarine cable global which links Europe and America, delivering much faster connectivity services to its various telecoms customers.
Glo Head of Prepaid Activation, Ekene Okonkwo, said that what was most important to the customers was data, adding that the bonus was also applicable to old Sims.
“If you are already in the network and not using data, now is the time; all you need to do is dial *777# to activate.
“For every #500 you get 1.8 GB, #1000 you get 3.6 GB data and so on.
“This is done to empower Nigerians who are craving to be connected,” Okonkwo said.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Globacom was launched in Nigeria on Aug. 17, 2003. (NAN)
