The fight for subscriber marketshare in Nigeria has gotten to a cutthroat level!! GLO Nigeria earlier responded to MTN’s review of data plans. Then, they offered 5 GB for N2500, and 9 GB for N4000. We all thought it would remain that way till we saw this shocker!! See screenshot below for the new Glo data offers.

It is crazy right? Apparently, they ramped up data allocation for all the plans. N2000 now goes for 6 GB of data, while 18 GB is offered for a mere N4000. The table below carries all the new Glo data plans and their subscription codes.

Plan Name Price (N) Data Volume Validity SMS to 127 USSD Code
Always Micro 1,000 2GB 30 Days 53 *127*53#
My Phone 2,000 6GB 30 Days 55 *127*55#
So Special 2,500 10GB 30 Days 58 *127*58#
Always Macro 3,000 12GB 30 Days 54 *127*54#
N4,000 Data Plan 4,000 18GB 30 Days 59 *127*59#
Always Min 5,000 24GB 30 Days 11 *127*2#
Always Max 8,000 48GB 30 Days 12 *127*1#
Silver 10,000 11GB 30 Days 15 *127*11#
Gold 15,000 60GB 30 Days 16 *127*12#
Platinum 18,000 90GB 30 Days 17 *127*13#

This is classic GLO style, as they choose to always offer the cheapest data rates. I wonder how speeds will be like on these plans. Now let’s see who else would respond to this. Game on!! Dial *777# and follow the onscreen instructions to subscribe to any of the plans.

  1. This is a welcome development. Cheap data rates provided by Glo will force it’s competitors to fall in line, but their network is poor, especially in my area in Kano.

  2. No, no and no please Glo don’t do this. Concentrate on improving your network. I currently have over 120Gb accumulated data shared across 6 devices and yet we cannot use up to 2 Gb per month because of poor services and slow speeds. Glo your costumers are suffering!!!

  3. Until Bros Adenuga and his people decide to do the right thing by improving on the reliability and speed of their data services, Glo remains a no-no for Ayodele.

  4. Some Glo customers not all. As for me it’s supersonic, am loving it.

  5. The strangest thing about glo’s speed is that in lagos it is very slow but in my village, it is super fast, hmmm guess I have to wait till I travel again…

  6. For the speed, I’m ok. I can now share btw my modem and phone. Glo I’m on your side, at least it delivered my from Airtel disappearing data.

  7. Just saw this on the glo hsi portal now when I wanted to renew my data plan! They’ve really gone gaga. I just pity the other telcos. Who would have thought the day would come! Now I have 10gb activated for N2,500 only!

  8. Glo have always been at the forefront of consumer oriented deals,forcing others to adjust to the market shift,per minute billing anyone..with this recent move others have no choice but to fall in line..

  9. Guys pls dont be deceoved by this usual Glo Data Hype.Like Wisemen say NOT ALL that glitters is gold and glo nigeria is a typical example of this.u wil buy 1 million GB for 1000 but at the End of the Day u would STRUGGLE to use even 1GB before the month ends.No be today way Glo don dey brainwash us.Guy pls look before u Leap.

  10. The data rate and prices are quite interesting but how do i activate it?

  11. Working like a breeze with my 6GB. I’m really enjoying it. What is the fastest way of checking balance?
