    HEY MISS TECHY, it’s John
    GLOBALCOM ARE REALLY DOING THEIR BEST, BASE ON COMMUNICATION AND TECH ADVANCEMENT.
    BUT LATELY WE’VE FOUND OUT THAT THERE HAS BEEN I BREAK IN TRANSMISSION IN THE SENSE THAT, COMMUNICATION HAS BEEN POOR BOTH FOR BROWSING AND CALLS.
    SO THIS WILL REALLY BE A GREAT STEP UP IF THEIR TECH FACILITIES ARE UPGRADED, I HOPE IT GETS BETTER.

    Finally, I suspect that heavyweight boxing champion, Anthony Joshua signifies strength, because that is what their network needs.

  2. Eagerly waiting for it

    Glo in my area is now faster than Airtel

    Question 15, for £1 million.

    How true is this statement: “Globacom, … personifies… tenacity, unequaled reach, and speed.”?
    Remember, you still all your lifelines available to use.

    Glo…. I still like the network mostly for their data plans, coverage can be a bit messy but they are trying

  5. Kehinde Adeleke says:

    I use Glo everytime now. Their network coverage isn’t exactly the best but the data plans are affordable compared to Mtn overpriced data bundles. If they improve on their service quality, they’d be a major contender and maybe even take the top spot as No1 teleco in the country.

    … WELL, I HOPE ALL OF THESE WILL TRANSLATE TO BETTER DATA CONNECTION QUALITY BECAUSE, MY GLO SIM IS THE MOST DORMANT THING I HAVE. THEIR NETWORK IS JUST TOO BAD FOR ME…
