Nigerian multinational telecommunications company, Globacom has introduced a new data offer, which guarantees its data subscribers a free access to the Internet for a whole day.
The telecommunications company said that the new offer, ‘Free Data Day’, had been programmed to give subscribers on the network that met the threshold of voice or data usage, 200 megabytes, usable throughout the day for all data-related activities.
“The offer is open to all Glo subscribers,” a statement from the telecoms company said.
The Globacom’s Zonal Business Coordinator, Lagos, Adebola Omoboya, said that the offer would allow subscribers on the Glo network to browse the Internet free of charge for a whole day.
According to him, subscribers who want to enjoy the Free Data Day are expected to spend a certain amount or more on calls in the preceding seven days to a free data day or spend at least N150 on voice calls.
“They are also expected to use a minimum of 100MB of data in the preceding seven days to the free data day from any or a combination of methods such as ‘Pay as you use’, purchase of data plan’ and usage from existing data plan,” Omoboya said.
He said that the offer “is easy to access as the qualified customers will be notified when they have met the threshold for the Free Data Day.”
He said that they would not be required to dial any code to opt in or subscribe to any platform before enjoying the benefits.
“When a customer qualifies for the offering, the customer will be able to enjoy free data usage throughout that day,” he said.
Similarly, the company announced the launch of ‘Glo Welcome Back’, an offer that will give customers who have not utilised the Glo network in 30 days, with free credit when they recharge their lines.
“The credit can be used to browse, send text messages and make calls,” the telco said.
