National Operator, Globacom, has stated that speed, quality and reliability are some ofÂ the unique features which make its new 3G Plus internet modem the best in the market.
Head of Globacomâ€™s 3G and BlackBerry Sales, Wunmi Jewesimi, said the modem which offersÂ fast, efficient, reliable and affordable internet access also gives subscribers a wideÂ range of interesting applications. He said continuous upgrade on the Glo network hasÂ enabled the company to improve its network quality, thus giving subscribers a world classÂ internet service that delivers fast and easy handling of internet applications.
Such applications include video streaming, gaming, chatting, data download and upload asÂ well as instant messaging. â€œThe enhanced speed makes it possible to do video streaming orÂ gaming without distortions. The user is able to enjoy real time internet sound or video,Â without having to wait to download a file to play it,â€ he explained.
â€œThe user can also enjoy world class streaming experience by watching live footballÂ matches or sites such as Youtube, CNN and BBC.
Jewesimi said other significant advantages of the new modem include its high qualityÂ which makes it compatible with most operating systems. The user can plug his modem onÂ almost every computer or laptop with a USB port and be able to enjoy the service. TheÂ modemâ€™s quality also enables easy connection to the 3G/GPRS coverage of the Glo networkÂ which ensures the service can be enjoyed in every part of the country.
â€œAnother superior benefit of the Glo 3G Plus modem is its ease of installation and useÂ made possible by its plug and play feature. Once the modem is plugged into a desktop orÂ laptop, a Glo GUI (Graphic User Interface) appears on the screen allowing the user to setÂ preferences and begin browsing instantly. The modem also allows access to the GloÂ Self-Care Portal which assists the customer to resolve certain issues by himself,â€ heÂ stated.
In addition to the above features, the Glo 3G Plus High Speed Internet service has easyÂ payment options and highly flexible packages for the convenience of customers. TheÂ flexible packages, he said, include the All day Packs, Bundled Hour Packs and FlexiÂ packs. The Globacom official added that a customer does not need to go to a shop toÂ select or pay for a package. â€œNormal recharge cards can be used to pay for the serviceâ€,Â he noted.
Meanwhile, Globacom has introduced a new, specially branded version of the 3G internetÂ modem for sale to the general public. The modem is co-branded in Manchester United FC ofÂ England and Glo logos to commemorate the partnership deal signed last season betweenÂ Globacom and the club. The modems are on sale at Gloworld shops nationwide and they areÂ of the same quality, speed and reliability. The specially branded modems were designed toÂ give football â€“ loving subscribers something unique to add more excitement to their useÂ of the Glo mobile internet modem.
The Glo 3G internet service will receive further boost as more cities pan-Nigeria willÂ soon be covered with 3G technology. Further improvements in terms of bandwidth and,Â consequently, speed and connectivity will be enjoyed by subscribers when the Glo 1Â international submarine cable starts to carry traffic soon.
