In line with the increasing demand for bandwidth and high speed internet capabilities, Globacom on Friday announced the simultaneous rollout of its Fourth Generation Long Term Evolution Advanced network, popularly known as 4G-LTE Advanced, in major cities in the country.
The company stated that over 4,000 LTE Advanced sites are planned for rollout in major cities across the country in 2023. This is projected to help speed-up economic and commercial activities as well as boost productivity of professionals, students and traders across the country.
The Glo LTE Advanced is described as the power of three LTE data networks in one. “It is faster, stronger and better”, Globacom said, and went on to outline 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 disclosed. It urged 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.
Globacom explained that delivering a 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. Access to affordable 4G LTE Advanced technology will enhance the experience of these subscribers. To enhance capacity and quality, Glo has acquired additional 4G spectrum on 2.6GHZ band.
The company described 4G LTE Advanced as ‘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.
The announcement concluded with the network stating, “Glo LTE Advanced is described as the power of three LTE data networks in one. It is faster, stronger and better. We urge new and existing 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 including optimum performance for use cases in telemedicine, e-agriculture, 3D Games, etc.”
