Glo blazes trail, launches nationwide 4G LTE network
Globacom has set the pace in the telecommunications industry by becoming the first operator in the country to launch a nationwide mobile 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) network.
The company disclosed that the simultaneous rollout of the service in several major cities in the country followed a successful multi-dimensional test-run of the advanced network.
The Glo 4G LTE is offering instant efficient broadband internet to millions of Nigerians at speeds that are several times faster than the 3G network.
This will enable subscribers on the network to download ultra- high definition videos in seconds.
Globacom said that telecom subscribers in several parts of key cities in Lagos, Port Harcourt in Rivers State, Abuja in the Federal Capital City, Jos in Plateau State, Warri in Delta State, Eket in Akwa Ibom State, Benin City in Edo State, Yola in Adamawa State and Zaria in Kaduna State can immediately connect to Glo 4G LTE network, adding that roll-out to other major cities of the country will happen in quick succession in the coming days.
The trailblazing initiative from Globacom is a major development in the telecoms sector as it will offer its subscribers data intensive applications.
It will also be of significant implication for individuals who use large volumes of data as well as government and corporate organisations like banks, oil and gas companies, academic and health institutions which rely heavily on reliable data connection for their operations.
