Glo Data Plan For Android, iOS, Windows, Modem


Glo Data Plan For Android – Glo, Nigeria’s very own telecommunications company, has recently been on a freebie binge, offering unbeatable deals to internet users. Glo, on the other hand, issued new terms and conditions to customers who wanted to continue taking advantage of her incredible deals in April 2017. Despite this, Glo’s data plan is still the most affordable in the country, beating out big players like MTN, Etisalat, and Airtel’s “smartphone network.”

This article details the current Glo data plans, including subscription codes and prices, for Android, iOS, Windows, and Blackberry devices. You’ll also find instructions on how to share your data with others and borrow data from Glo.

Glo Data Plan For Android, iOS, Windows, Modem

Whatever attractive a deal from a network service provider appears to be, it is made in the hopes of increasing business profitability. Glo was able to attract a large number of subscribers with a new data plan, only to halve the data volume months later and issue a new clause.

Prior to the April 2017 implementation of the new clause, all Glo customers could get 1.6 GB of data for as little as ₦500. The cheapest plan was a daily 30 MB plan for ₦50, and the most expensive was a monthly 45 GB plan for ₦18,000. However, if the user meets the following REQUIREMENTS, these are still possible:

  • The previous data volume, now referred to as “double data volume,” would be available to all new Glo customers.
  • Existing/OLD customers who renew their subscription will receive double data volume.
  • Customers who fail to renew their subscription within three days of their data plan’s expiration will lose the double data volume, but will receive half the data volume for the same price.


DATA BOOST: If you run out of data before your expiration date or simply want to boost your current data plan, dial *777# and select “Buy Extra Data.” There are two options: 300 MB for ₦200 or 1 GB for ₦1,000. The latter is only available to customers who have a 1 GB plan or higher.

Both 3G and 4G LTE devices are covered by the data plan table above. Customers with 4G LTE phones used to have their own separate data plan bundles, but Glo recently merged the two into one.

Glo Flexi Plans

The Flexi plan, as the name implies is suitable for customers who require a specific flexibility.

GLO Campus Data Booster

The Glo Campus Data Booster is a student favorite because it provides excellent value for money. Customers get 10 times the value of their data subscription whenever they are on campus at NO EXTRA COST with this service.

Non-students can take advantage of the deal as well; all they have to do is be on campus. Customers will also receive free “on-net” talk time with other Glo customers, as well as free data to share with friends.

All campuses across the country, including Customs, Immigration, and Police training institutes, offer the service.

POINTS TO NOTE – Campus Data Booster

A standard data plan will not double on campus; instead, a campus data booster plan is required.

The data on campus cannot be “shared,” but it can be “gifted.”

There is no way to carry over unused campus data booster to the next subscription.

The campus booster plan will function normally outside of the Campus booster zone.

Glo Data Plan For Blackberry 10

Glo’s service for Blackberry phones running BB OS 7 and lower was discontinued on December 17, 2016. They did, however, stick to Blackberry 10 and higher devices.

Customers with data on their BB OS 7 devices were advised to upgrade to a BB 10 or higher device in order to keep their data. All Glo data bundles for BlackBerry OS 7 are no longer available, including the BB Complete, Absolute, and BIS plans.

Glo created a unified data plan for BB 10 devices, similar to what they did for Android, iOS, and Windows. This means that the same data plan can be used for 2G, 3G, and 4G LTE.

There are some EXCEPTIONS to the BB 10 plan, such as the fact that it is not giftable or shareable.

The BB 10 plans are also subject to the 3-Day Grace Period mentioned above. Customers who purchase or renew their BB 10 data plan within three days of its expiration or exhaustion will receive double data volume (100%); otherwise, their next data value will be divided in half.

How Do I Check My Glo Data Balance?
