Glo Mobile Ghana has introduced new products aimed at giving telecommunication subscribers in Ghana, additional value to significantly improve their communication experience.

The products are for voice and data subscribers.

They are the ‘Double Double’, which doubles the subscriber's call credit on all recharges with free data, and the ‘Data Offer’ which delivers benefits to subscribers that auto-renew their data subscriptions.

The company also launched the Ghana-Nigeria packs, which enable Glo Mobile subscribers to call or roam in Nigeria and also get huge benefits on their lines in Ghana.

The press statement from the company said the packs would also provide an opportunity for those who exhausted their airtime or data at odd hours or at difficult locations to top-up airtime or data by simply borrowing.

Details of offers

It said with the Glo Double Double, subscribers on the network could recharge GH¢1 and get another GH¢1 instantly for on-net calls.

They will also get a free 50MB data to browse, the statement said, explaining that a GH¢5 would give another GH¢5 in the bonus account and a 250MB free data.

“Similarly, a GH¢20 recharge gives the subscriber a bonus credit of GHc20 and 1GB data valid for 20 days . While this is the default plan for new subscribers, existing subscribers can dial *2019# to migrate to the offer,” it said.

Data offer

Glo Mobile Ghana’s Chief Operating Officer, Mr Isa Omagu, said: “We have got the best opportunity to get Ghana talking with the Glo Double Double.

If you want to talk to your family, pals or colleagues without being afraid of the call rate, go for the Glo Double Double.

“It is the best way to save money and still get to talk as much as you want,” he said.

The statement said the Glo Data offer, which is available for those who auto-renew their data subscriptions, gave a subscriber 150MB for just GHc1 instead of 100MB.

For GHc2, the subscriber would get as much as 320MB of data instead of 200MB in the base plan, while a GHc10 subscription would give a whopping 2.25GB data instead of 1.75GB.

“To enjoy this service, all a subscriber needs to do is have auto-renewal on for data subscription and ensure sufficient airtime on the Glo line and then dial *555# to subscribe,” it said.

Mr Omagu said, “this is made possible with Glo Mobile’s reliance on its unmatched and superior data infrastructure, and our subscribers are rest assured that this is the best data deal in town today”.

Roaming service

The statement said Ghana-Nigeria packs enabled Glo Mobile subscribers to call or roam in Nigeria with ease.

“It is a new arrangement by Glo to ensure subscribers do not have to worry about roaming charges.

“This is the first time an operator is introducing such a product in Ghana,” it said.

It said the voice pack, for example, delivered to a subscriber 50 minutes for GHc25 to call Nigeria from Ghana or when a subscriber roamed in Nigeria.

The subscriber also enjoys 150 minutes on Glo-to-Glo calls in Ghana.
Anyone who opts for the data pack gets 1GB data for GH¢25 to browse, chat or download in Ghana or when a subscriber roams in Nigeria.

“Any subscriber who wants a combination of voice and data can also enjoy the exciting offer. For GHc25, the subscriber gets 500MB data plus 25 minutes to call or roam in Nigeria. The subscriber also enjoys 150 minutes on Glo-to-Glo calls in Ghana,” it said.


It said with the Glo Borrow Credit or Data, subscribers no longer needed to worry whenever they ran out of credit or data at odd hours or at locations where getting credit or data to buy was difficult because Glo had a solution tailored for them.

The company said customers could borrow airtime or data to enable them to remain in constant touch with friends, family and associates over such period.
