Glo Data Plan – Glo, Nigeria’s very own telecommunications firm, has recently been on a freebie binge, providing unmatched offers to internet users. Glo, on the other hand, released new terms and conditions in April 2017 for consumers who want to continue taking advantage of her incredible offers. Despite this, Glo’s data plan remains the most affordable in the world, beating out major competitors such as MTN, Etisalat, and “the smartphone network,” Airtel.
This article discusses the latest Glo data plans, including subscription codes and rates for smartphones running Android, iOS, Windows, and Blackberry. Additionally, you’ll discover helpful instructions for sharing your data with friends and borrowing data from Glo.
Glo Data Plan For Android, iOS, Windows, Modem
Regardless of how tempting an offer from a network service provider is, it is made in an effort to maximize company profitability. Glo attracted a sizable number of customers with a new data plan, only to halve the data volume and add a new clause months later.
Prior to the new clause’s implementation in April 2017, all Glo customers will get 1.6 GB of data for as little as 500. The cheapest plan was the regular plan for 50 cents, while the most costly was the monthly plan for 18,000 cents for 45 GB. These are also possible, however, if the consumer meets the following REQUIREMENTS:
All NEW Glo network customers will receive the previous data volume, now referred to as “double data volume.”
Existing/OLD customers who renew their subscriptions will receive double data amount.
However, consumers who do not renew their subscriptions within three days of their data plan expiration will forfeit the double data volume but will receive HALF the data volume for the SAME PRICE.
Below are the outlines, daily, weekly, and monthly Glo Data Plans for Android, iOS, Windows, and Modem Devices.

Campus Data cannot be “shared,” but they can be “gifted.”
The unused portion of a campus data booster subscription CANNOT be carried on to the subsequent subscription.
Within the Campus booster zone, the campus booster plan operates normally.
Glo Data Plan For Blackberry 10
Glo discontinued support to Blackberry phones running BB OS 7 and lower on December 17, 2016. They did, however, stick to Blackberry 10 and higher devices.
Customers with data remaining on their BlackBerry OS 7 devices were urged to upgrade to a BlackBerry 10 or higher device in order to continue using their data. All Glo data packs, including the BB Total, Absolute, and BIS plans, have been discontinued.
As with Android, iOS, and Windows users, Glo has developed a single data plan for BlackBerry 10 devices, which means that the same data plan covers 2G, 3G, and 4G LTE.
However, there are a few EXCEPTIONS to the BB 10 scheme, including the fact that BB 10 plans are NOT transferable or giftable.
The three-day grace period listed previously also applies to the BB 10 plans. Customers who buy or upgrade their BlackBerry 10 data plan within three days of expiration or exhaustion will obtain twice the data volume (100 percent); otherwise, their next data value will be split in half.
