It was with some trepidation that I slotted my GloMobile SIM into my Blackberry 9810 a few days ago. My first romance with Glo Blackberry Internet Subscription (BIS) in July 2010 had ended up a disaster. Back then, the connection was very epileptic and unstable. I would often go for hours without BlackBerry service. Eventually, I gave up on Glo BlackBerry service and got rid of my BlackBerry Tour 9630. There was only one word to describe it: crap.
I have since avoided Glo BlackBerry like the plague. Whenever I needed to review a BlackBerry device, I would go for the often more stable service from Etisalat.
However, I was active on Glo BIS for seven (7) days and it was a more stable affair. As a matter of fact, there was hardly any service failure besides a couple of minor moments. I daresay that I was impressed. Speed was very good for both general browsing and downloads. Or was I just lucky this time around?
I did have one issue: using BlackBerry’s mobile hotspot, deductions for usage were done to my airtime even though I had an active data plan and had the GloFlat settings enabled under TCP/IP settings on my device. Besides that, my experience with the service was good.
I know that performances of these services are often location dependent. If you use Glo BlackBerry service, what have been your experiences in recent times?
