Christmas couldn’t come earlier, especially for Glo subscribers, with the introduction of new cheap data plans on the network.
By dialing *777# and selecting “data booster” under buy data, you can get an additional 300MB for N200 or 1GB for just N500. At this ate, it is easily the cheapest official data plan on any network in Nigeria. But there’s a catch:
While you can buy as many additional data packs as you want, using the data booster feature, you can only do it within the validity period of the original data plan. What this means is that you must have a regular data plan active, and still within its validity period, before you can buy additional data. The data booster feature is only available for Glo’s monthly data plans.
In addition, Glo has also introduced 2 new volume data plans. There’s a weekend plan (*127*61#) that gives you 3GB for just N500. There’s also a night plan (*127*60#) for N200 which gives you 1GB for a single night’s usage.
