Our 4G LTE advanced offers boundless opportunities – Glo

Mobile network operator, Globacom, has unveiled its Fourth Generation Long Term Evolution Advanced network, popularly known as 4G-LTE Advanced.

The telecommunications giant said in a press statement that the simultaneous rollout of the service in several major cities in the country is geared towards speeding up economic and commercial activities while boosting the productivity of professionals, students and traders across the country.

The launch of the superior 4G LTE Advanced technology was a major step in actualizing its objective of empowering Nigerians for a better internet experience and more productive life, the company added. Described as the power of three LTE data networks in one, Glo 4G LTE "is faster, stronger and better", Globacom noted as it further outlined the process of how its new and existing customers can connect to the network.

"It is a simple process. For those who already have 4G SIMs, they will be able to enjoy the Glo LTE Advanced service. But for those who do not have the 4G SIMs, they first need to upgrade their SIM cards to USIM (4G SIM). The upgrade process is also simple, as all you require is a SIM Swap, which takes two minutes. The customer also needs a device that is 4G-enabled. Then, you will experience seamless and super-fast mobile Internet services on the Glo network," the network further enumerated. 

While enjoining subscribers to visit the nearest Gloworld shop to connect to the Glo 4G LTE Advanced and enjoy the boundless opportunities offered by the advanced and superior technology, the company posited that with the consistent growth of smart devices in Nigeria, the demand for bandwidth and high speed capabilities is also increasing as subscribers exchange, download and upload more videos, music and documents and use mobile applications that are bandwidth intensive.

According to the network provider, access to affordable 4G LTE Advanced technology will enhance the experience of these subscribers as well as enhance capacity and quality. All these culminated in Glo acquiring additional 4G spectrum on 2.6GHZ band.

"Glo 4G LTE Advanced is 'transformational' as it will be of significant implication for individuals who use large volumes of data as well as government and corporate organisations such as banks, oil and gas companies, academic and health institutions which rely heavily on reliable data connection for their operations," it added.

Throwing more light on the benefits of LTE Advanced network, Glo said it offers subscribers a significantly improved experience, adding "The video and voice quality in video calls on different applications like Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Viber etc is a lot clearer while the picture quality is crispier, and the transmission is faster".

Glo 4G LTE Advanced will also enable optimum performance in telemedicine, e-agriculture, 3D Games.

Over 4,000 LTE Advanced sites are projected for rollout in major cities across the country in 2023 to ensure nationwide coverage of the network, making Glo stand out in the 4G broadband space in Nigeria.
