Globacom has reconfirmed the spread of its 4G LTE service in all the 36 states of Nigeria and in over 200 tertiary institutions where students have been empowered with the fastest and most affordable data services.

The company explained that the 700MHz band which Glo 4G is operating on affords it better coverage and penetration, adding that “the radio propagation property of the 700MHz band enables Globacom 4G signal to travel the farthest, giving the largest coverage for any site. In effect, any city where Glo LTE is present, it covers the widest area than any other network”.
The statement declared that the Band

“also gives a better indoor penetration than other networks which are not on the band. Indeed, it offers seamless 4G coverage within the major cities without the requirement of handing over to 3G or 2G while using data, whether the subscriber is indoor or outdoor. This ensures a better user experience for 4G subscribers on the Glo network”.

It further said that “a major advantage of the band is that it comes with a dedicated spectrum bandwidth of 10MHz which gives users the fastest speed among all 4G operators required to download and view movies and videos as well as listen to songs without any delay.  It all comes in crystal clear quality”.

Glo 4G LTE is backed by the company’s international submarine cable, Glo 1, which has provided the much needed internet bandwidth for West Africa sub-region.

Globacom enjoined subscribers to visit any Gloworld outlet near to them to purchase 4G devices and SIM to enjoy the superior Glo 4G LTE services and most competitive pricing that gives subscriber the best value data plans.

The statement said that existing customers with 4G-enabled smart phone could upgrade their SIMs free of charge at any Gloworld outlets, while customers without a 4G-enabled smart phone can purchase one from the same Gloworld outlets.

It will be recalled that Globacom was the first network in Nigeria to roll out the 4G LTE service in October, 2016, and also the first to launch a nationwide 4G LTE network, offering instant efficient broadband internet to millions of Nigerians at speeds that are several times faster than the 3G network.
