Second National Operator, Globacom, Monday announced a reduction in the price of its 3G Internet modem from N8,500 to N5,000.

The company also announced a 25 percent reduction on the monthly rental fee for its Always Max plan bringing it to N7,500 instead of the usual N10,000, even as it increased the data volume for the package.

In addition to the reduced tariff, the data volume for the package which gives all-day internet access for 30 days has been increased from 5GB to 6GB.

Glo also announced that data volume on the G300 pack with 90 days validity has been increased by over 100% from 4GB to 9GB. This enables subscribers to the package to download much more than they did before now at no additional cost.

The revised packages, according to the Head of Globacom’s 3G and Blackberry sales, Wunmi Jewesimi, give more value to the customer and could now pass as the best 3G internet packages in the industry in terms of value and pricing.

She said that “the Always Max subscriber makes a savings of N2,500 every month and is able to do more with the increased data volume. The G300 customer has also been empowered to do much more with the additional 5 gigabytes,” Jewesimi added.

Other packages on the Glo 3G Plus High Speed Internet offer include the Always Min package which gives the user a month all-day access to the internet for N5,000.

Also, she revealed that the Always Day pack now has a fee of N500 for all day access for 24 hours just as the G100 now has a monthly fee of N6,000 with 100 hours, all day access.
