Glo offers affordable data roaming services to Nigerian pilgrims to Mecca

Telecommunications giant, Globacom, has announced special data roaming packages for Nigerian pilgrims going to Mecca and Medina for the 2023 pilgrimage.

The company expressed delight that this will avail the pilgrims opportunity to stay connected with family and friends back home during the religious exercise, which is one of the pillars of the Islamic faith.

Globacom said in a press release that the special Glo Data roaming package is in partnership with Zain Saudi Arabia, which will make the religious obligation enjoyable to prospective pilgrims. The data roaming service in the Holy land is available for as low as N5/MB.

The pilgrims will get 3GB for N15,000 with 30 days' validity, 1.25GB for N6,500 with 15 days' validity, 600MB for N3,500 with 7 days' validity, and 300MB for just N2,000 with 3 days' validity. 

Said Glo, "Besides its affordability, the data bundle can be purchased while in Nigeria and its validity starts when the subscriber lands in the Holy land".

The company further noted that, "subscribers are also in control of their usage and there are no fears of additional billing as they only use from the bundle they purchase. Glo also ensures that customers receive consumption messages several times to enable them monitor their depletion of the data purchased".

The telecommunications giant enjoined prepaid subscribers to be sure to have sufficient balance on their account since roaming services are activated by default on prepaid lines. It also urged postpaid customers to activate roaming service before they choose any of the available bundles.
