LAGOS—THE grandmasters of data, Globacom, has announced that it has carried out a massive and comprehensive upgrade of its facilities across Nigeria to optimize its efficiency and radically improve the experience of subscribers on the network.
In a statement in Lagos, the company said it had built hundreds of new transmitting sites across Nigeria to complement existing ones and massively improve the telco’s signals to give more Nigerians access to relish Globacom’s reliable 2G, 3G and inimitable 4G services.
The statement noted that it had swapped obsolete parts with state-of-the-art brand new components, provided new power supply equipment in all transmitting sites, while fibre relocation had been completed resulting in higher fibre route and network availability.
The statement reads: “Transmission capacity has been increased with pure IP (Internet Protocol) backhaul in several states across Nigeria. The data core network interface ports have been upgraded from 40 GB to 100GB doubling the network handling capacity.”

It is revealed that Glo’s core data network interface ports have been upgraded from 40GB to 100GB, meaning the traffic handling capacity is more than doubled.
