How do I Check, Borrow, Gift and Share Data to Friends and Family


Whatever attractive a deal from a network service provider appears to be, it is made in the hopes of increasing business profitability. Glo was able to attract many subscribers with a new data plan, only to halve the data volume months later and issue a new clause.

Before the April 2017 implementation of the new clause, all Glo customers could get 1.6 GB of data for as little as ₦500. The cheapest plan was a daily 30 MB plan for ₦50, and the most expensive was a monthly 45 GB plan for ₦18,000. However, if the user meets the following REQUIREMENTS, these are still possible:

  • The former data number, which has now been referred to as “double amount,” is now accessible to any of all new Glo customers.
  • Existing/OLD customers who renew their subscriptions will receive double data volume.
  • After three days, consumers who have not extended their subscription will be given half the data amount at the same sum.
