It was a stormy and frustrating weekend for GloMobile subscribers who suddenly found their lines without service. Service seems to have been fully restored as at yesterday evening.
Globacom has issued a public announcement on the incident:
The management of Globacom Limited wishes to inform the general public that due to a fire incident which occurred at one of our key installations in Lagos on Thursday night, there has been a temporary disruption in services.
The fire incident has since been brought under control and all efforts have been initiated to quickly restore services.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused our valued customers.
We thank you all for your understanding and support.
Its good to have our lines active once again, and in my opinion Globacom acted fast in restoring operations. Yes; it was painful while it lasted, but all’s well now.
