Telecommunications company, Globacom, has said that almost 30 million subscribers across Nigeria are now on its network. National Sales Coordinator of Globacom for North West Operations, Samuel Edoho disclosed last weekend in Abuja at an award ceremony where the company was recognized as the network provider of the year 2014 by the Independent Newspaper Limited.
He said the company achieved the feat due to the company’s consistent investment and deployment of innovative and customer oriented services for its teaming subscribers. Edoho said the company, with close to 30 million subscribers in its network, plans to soar towards its aspiration of building Africa’s biggest and best telecommunications network in the continent.
With this latest record, Globacom still retains its number two spot, with MTN Nigeria at number one. As at the last review, MTN Nigeria stood at 59,893,093 subscriber base, Globacom – 28,219,089; Airtel Nigeria – 27,556,544; Etisalat Nigeria stood at 21,103,745 while Mtel came last with 258,520 subscriber base.
“We are still very aggressive, we will keep the spirit high and assure Nigerians who have no confidence in the market of our determination to offer them best experience ever across all network.
“For us, this is a testimony to the innovation the company has brought and we will want to dedicate this award to our teaming subscribers because it is because of that we can be recognized and we will like to let our subscribers know that the network that brought per second billing is still in the fore front of bringing new things.
“As we speak now, we have got 200 per cent incentives for all subscribers in our network. Our capacity is immense. With Glo 1, we have the potential to deliver fast internet service,” said Edoho.
On poor quality of service, Edoho said, “we are doing our best to meet the needs of our teaming subscribers. If we are not doing well, we will not have customers, our customers have stood by us and what Daily Independence are doing today is a testimony to the fact that Globacom is delivering quality service on day to day basis. “We hope to bring more innovations on board, give better services and make everything better. There are a lot of challenges but we are coping.”
