I think we are witnessing happy days on glo. A couple of months ago, I posted about there 15% discount and bonuses on Glo Airtime you buy from (between, you can get to read the article here). If any seer, has told me that I would stay connected to the internet on Glo network for a period up to or longer than 2 hours at a go, and without disconnecting, I would call him fake. But today, I am delighted to tell you that I have been on glo since 10: AM and up until the time of post this article, the connection is still very stable. At least in three major towns in the southwestern part of Nigeria. Glo internet connection now faster in Osun, Ekiti and Oyo state. The purpose of this article is to report the event to you so that you can check your end as well.
Glo internet connection now faster: my discovery
The sudden network outage of 9mobile network in my area actually led me int this. I hardly ever go offline so I always have a plan B for my internet needs. My mega 9mobile data had its network cut off suddenly and it is a general problem. I switched to my MTN but it was moving at a snail’s speed. I loaded glo data out of frustration. The first impression was that It connected. I wasn’t too surprised that it connects fast because it often does that. However, i waited for it to fluctuate all to no avail. In a nutshell, I am still using it and the speed is appreciable. It is currently faster than MTN.
Glo internet connection now faster, I think Glo has now passed the slowness in internet speed on to MTN. If you are not on TN 4g network, you may not have the best of speed. Glo 4G network band has few phones that support it. A reason why the frustration is much on their 3G subscribers when they had to live with unstable and snail-like glo internet speed. I think this is about to change. It was rumoured that they have acquired some underwater cables to strengthen their signal. Whatever it is that they have done, the results are beginning to show up.
Could it be that they are feeling the criticism? Or, maybe we should say, more people are dumping their sim card and switching over to other networks for value for their money as far as the internet is concerned. Whatever the case may be, let the intensify their efforts.
Glo internet connection now faster: How you can test the speed before subscribing
I wouldn’t want anyone to jump into any huge subscription without first testing the speed. I would advise you to test and see if their service has improved in your area before you subscribe. You can test their service by doing any of the followings:
- Set your mobile network mode to 3G only then try to browse the web. All other things being equal, your data signal should come up and when you try to open any w=page from your web browser, you would receive a page asking you to subscribe to glo data plan. NOw, if this page opens fast, it is a good sign. However, this is not a foolproof test. In some cases, this free homp=epage will open fast and your actual subscription will be slow.
- This is the best way to test the improvement in speed and stability wise and once you are satisfied, subscribe to any of their plans.
- Furthermore, you can load a #100 recharge card and dial *777# to subscribe to their #100 plan. Immediately you observe the improvement, subscribe to your usual/favourite plan. Otherwise, wait for your time.
- On the other hand, our 15% glo airtime discount sales are still very much working. No better time to get it other than when you need to subscribe to a data plan. Contact me if you need to buy
I was told that glo has now gone the way of airtel. I mean, they now wipe/deduct your data anyhow they like. Some of my contacts confirmed the improvement in speed which they claim is at the expense of their data. Those who usually spend 2 weeks are now complaining that they can only squeeze out between 10 to 12 days. I have not verified the authenticity of this claim because so far, my subscription is having a normal billing. I am monitoring the situation and I will keep in touch immediately I notice anything.
Important notice on Glo mobile internet speed
We all cherish cheap and fast data. Please let us be our brother’s keeper by reporting back to the house if you notice any improvemnet the in speed of glo in your area. I am practically referring to those locations where glo internet connection used to be extremely bad. I am happy to tell you that It is better in Osun, Ekiti and most parts of Oyo state. There hasn’t been any major complaint in Lagos(oter than occasional instabiity). Please flood the comment box with your discovery. Cheer.
