Glo Celebrates 20th Anniversary, Pledges Investment In Techn

To meet the needs of its customers, Globacom has stated that it will keep making investments in cutting-edge technology.

This was said at the same time that it declared that today (Tuesday) would be its 20th anniversary.

The telco claimed that since it started operating in 2003, it has been dedicated to giving its customers access to communications and digital services by continuously deploying the newest technologies, in keeping with its corporate promise to develop a reliable, fully integrated ICT network infrastructure that would consistently provide value to its esteemed customers.

The organisation said in a statement, “We will remain a catalyst for socio-economic empowerment, not only in Nigeria but also in Africa. We will continue to invest massively in new technologies to exceed customer expectations.”

Glo stated that one of its accomplishments in the telecom industry was to bring down the price of SIM cards from roughly N25,000 to about N200.

“The network also disappointed bookmakers as it launched operations on a per second billing platform, a feat others had described as impossible to achieve until another five years.

“Prominent among the innovations Glo pioneered in Nigeria are Blackberry, Multimedia Messaging Service, Magic Plus, Glo Direct, Glo Fonepals, Africhat, Glo Mobile Internet, GloFleetmanager, M-Banking and Glo Mobile Office. Glo was also the first to launch 2.5G, 3G, and 4G LTE networks.

“It also single handedly built an international submarine cable, Glo 1 to connect West Africa directly to the United Kingdom and the rest of the world. It also connects 12 nations in the West African sub region, including some of them that are landlocked.”

The company went on to say that the backing of millions of Nigerians was responsible for its success over the years. More than 61 million people are now subscribers, it noted.
