Telecommunications company, Globacom, has stated that its Fourth Generation Long Term Evolution Advanced network (Glo 4G-LTE Advanced) will boost productivity among professionals, businessmen and students.
Globacom assured in a press statement that the simultaneous rollout of the service in major cities in the country is to speed up economic and commercial activities.
“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 a reliable data connection for their operations,” the company explained.
Enumerating the power of the LTE Advanced network, Glo said it offers subscribers a significantly improved internet 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, and 3D Games. While describing the new network as the power of three LTE data networks in one, Globacom said its 4G LTE ” is faster, stronger and better”.
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.
In addition to these, Globacom promised that over 4,000 LTE Advanced sites will be rolled out 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.
“Connecting to the technology is a simple process. Those who already have 4G SIMs, will be able to enjoy the Glo LTE Advanced service. But those who do not have the 4G SIMs, 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 added.
Globacom advised 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 also 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.
