Mike Adenuga, chairman, Globalcom


GLOBACOM has expanded its 4G LTE network to more locations in the country. The new locations include the Lagos State University and Babcock University in Ogun State. Others are Ikeja, Oregun, Opebi and Isolo in Lagos; Redemption Camp in Ogun State; Redeemer’s University, Ede, Osun State, as well as Rukpokwu, Rumuibekwe, Eleme Junction, Woji, Eliozu, and Rumuigbo in Port Harcourt, Rivers State. Mpape and Utako in Abuja, are the remaining new locations now covered by Glo 4G LTE service.

The new towns join the eight cities that were connected to the network recently and the nine that were hooked up at the formal launch of the service earlier in October. This gives fillip to Globacom’s stated resolve to avail millions of Nigerians the benefits of the highly advanced technology.

With the connections, Glo subscribers in the areas can now enjoy instant and efficient mobile broadband internet services at speeds which are several times faster than the 3G network. They will also be able to download ultra high definition videos in seconds.

Globacom had recently announced the rollout of 4G LTE services in Bonny, Escravos, Forcados, Abraka (Delta State University), Ekpoma (Ambrose Alli University), Okada (Igbinedion University), Agbor (College of Education), and Sapele (Western Delta University).

The nine cities the operator launched 4G LTE in early October were Lagos- Lekki, Ikoyi, Victoria Island, Ajah and Akoka (South West), Port Harcourt- Aba Road, Trans Amadi, Diobu, Old GRA and UNIPort, Warri, Eket and Benin (South South), Abuja- Maitama, Wuse, Asokoro, Garki/Central Business District and Airport Road and Jos (North Central), Yola – ABTI (North East) and Zaria-ABU (North West).

Glo 4G LTE comes with such benefits as free access to millions of music, video and movie on demand, among others.
