Right after other 4G LTE mobile networks like Ntel and MTN have gone live, Glo Nigeria has finally activated the 4G LTE network that they “ghost launched” in January 2011. And typical of them, Glo are also claiming to be the first network in Nigeria to do it. Hilarious. But that is Glo for you. Here are the things you need to know and do to successfully subscribe to and use a Glo 4G data plan.
Requirements To Use A Glo 4G Data Plan
- You will need a 4G-compatible SIM card from Glo. You can swap your current SIM for one if you prefer to use your existing line for it. Head to a Glo outlet to do this.
- You will need a 4G LTE smartphone that is compatible with Glo’s 4G LTE network.
- Dial *777# to subscribe to a Glo 4G data plan and enjoy 4G/LTE service.
To check if your phone is compatible
Glo has made it easy for you to confirm whether both your smartphone and SIM card are compatible with their 4G service. Text “4G” to 400 and you will receive a text message in response telling you if either of both are compatible with the network.
Don’t forget that Glo’s 4G network is not available everywhere yet, despite the claim that the service is available “nationwide”. So be sure to ask for current coverage information. Do let us know how it goes if you get on the Glo 4G LTE train.
