Glo Data Plan for Android, iOS and Windows Device


Glo, Nigeria’s own telecommunications provider, has recently gone on a freebie spree, providing internet consumers with unbeatable offers. Glo, on the other side, updated her terms and conditions in April 2017 for buyers who wished to keep taking advantage of her amazing offers. Despite this, Glo’s data plan remains the cheapest in the world, beating out major players such as MTN, Etisalat, and Airtel’s “smartphone network.” This article covers the latest Glo data plans for Android, iOS, Windows, and Blackberry smartphones, as well as account codes and costs.

Whatever appealing a network service provider’s offer seems to be, it is made with the aim of growing market profitability. With a revamped data package, Glo was able to gain a substantial amount of customers, only to halve the data volume months later and issue a new provision.

Prior to the new provision taking effect in April 2017, all Glo consumers will get 1.6 GB of data for as low as 500 pesos. A regular 30 MB plan for $50 was the lowest, and an annual 45 GB plan for $18,000 was the most costly. These are still possible if the customer satisfies the following requirement:

  • Both new Glo consumers will have access to the previous data amount, now referred to as “double data volume.”
  • Customers who upgrade their subscriptions would get twice the data amount.
  • Customers who may not upgrade their subscription within three days of the end of their data plan may forfeit the double data amount but will get half the data volume at the same amount.


DATA BOOST: If you run out of data before your expiration date or simply want to boost your current data plan, dial *777# and select “Buy Extra Data.” There are two options: 300 MB for ₦200 or 1 GB for ₦1,000. The latter is only available to customers who have a 1 GB plan or higher.

Both 3G and 4G LTE devices are covered by the data plan table above. Customers with 4G LTE phones used to have their own separate data plan bundles, but Glo recently merged the two into one.

GLO Campus Data Booster

The Glo Campus Data Booster is a popular choice among students because it offers great value for money. Customers who use this app get 10 times the worth of their data subscription at NO EXTRA COST while they are on campus.

Non-students will still profit from the offer; all they have to do is be present on campus. Customers can also get additional “on-net” chat time with other Glo users, as well as free data to exchange with their families. The service is available at all campuses around the world, including Customs, Immigration, and Police training institutes.

POINTS TO NOTE – Campus Data Booster

  • A standard data plan will not double on campus; instead, a campus data booster plan is required.
  • The data on campus cannot be “shared,” but it can be “gifted.”
  • There is no way to carry over unused campus data booster to the next subscription.
  • The campus booster plan will function normally outside of the Campus booster zone.

  • SMS 4G to 400 to see if the new gadget supports Glo 4G LTE.
  • Be sure that your current location has the LTE coverage.
  • Glo 4G LTE is currently available in Lagos, Ogun, Rivers State, Delta, Edo, Eket, Kaduna, Adamawa (ABTI University) and more. Glo is working on making the coverage nationwide.
