Globacom, a leading Nigerian telecommunications company, has officially launched its nationwide Fourth Generation Long Term Evolution Advanced network, known as 4G-LTE Advanced.
The company believes that the simultaneous rollout of this service in various cities across the country will accelerate economic and commercial activities and have a positive impact on productivity.
Globacom emphasizes that the implementation of 4G LTE Advanced technology is a crucial step towards empowering Nigerians for a better internet experience and a more productive life.
They describe it as a combination of three LTE data networks into one, offering faster, stronger, and better connectivity. The company explains the process for connecting new and existing users to the network, which involves upgrading SIM cards to 4G SIMs (USIM) through a simple SIM swap process.
Users also need a 4G-enabled device to access seamless and high-speed mobile internet services on the Glo network.
Globacom invites customers to visit their nearest Gloworld outlet to connect to Glo 4G LTE Advanced and take advantage of the limitless opportunities provided by this cutting-edge technology.
The growing number of subscribers in Nigeria who share, download, and upload videos, music, and documents, and use bandwidth-intensive mobile applications will benefit from affordable access to 4G LTE Advanced technology. To improve capacity and quality, Glo has acquired additional 4G spectrum on the 2.6GHz band.
The company believes that 4G LTE Advanced will be transformational, particularly for data-intensive users and government and corporate organizations such as banks, oil and gas companies, academic and medical institutions, and other businesses that rely on reliable data connections.
The network promises subscribers an enhanced experience, including clearer video and voice quality in applications like Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, and Viber, with faster transmission and crisper picture quality.
Globacom envisions that Glo 4G LTE Advanced will also deliver optimal performance in areas such as telemedicine, e-agriculture, 3D games, and other application cases. In 2023, the company plans to roll out over 4,000 LTE Advanced stations throughout the country
