The Nigerian Indigenous mobile telecommunication giant GLO recently introduce what they called Glo Always On plan for all Glo subscribers who wish to stay connected on Glo mobile network. In this post, we are going to find out what Glo always on is all about, how it works and most importantly how it benefits you.
I lost my GLO Sim a few months ago because I left it and travelled, when I returned and tried to use it I was told that my GLO line is disconnected, I used another number to call Glo customer care to know why my Glo line is not going connecting and I was told that for not recharging the line for 3 months that the line is disconnected. The only way to get back to the network was to visit the nearest Glo office to reactive the line.
Glo programmed their network in such a way that it disconnects any Glo subscriber who failed to recharge his or her Glo line with 90 days (3 Months). However, I personally hate Glo for that because other networks don't work that way but their own is different once you fail to recharge your Glo line for 3 days then that line is gone unless you have the strength to visit their nearest office to reconnect it.
GLO Aways On has finally fixed the issue
You wont be disconnected anymore for not recharging your Glo line for 3 months and guess that the main reason for the introduction of GLO Always On tarrif plan, the different is that this plan is not set by default, you will have to make that choice. If you are not using your Glo line regularly or frequently travels out of the country then consider Glo Always On because that's the only way to stay connected on the network.
With the introduction of this tarrif plan you will be able to stay connected for the whole year even if you are not using the SIM for the whole year and you wont be disconnected from the network. If you have been disconnect from the network before then you will know how important the new Glo always on tarrif plan are.
What is Glo Always On?
Glo ALWAYS ON is a prepaid tariff plan which allows customers to retain their phone numbers for one full year (365 days) irrespective of whether they have used their lines or not. With Glo ALWAYS ON, you do not need to worry about your line getting suspended or disconnected even if you have not made calls, used data or SMS.
ALWAYS ON is especially beneficial to customers who travel out of the country for >90 days or customers who do not have ready access to SIM replacement touch-points; they can rest easy knowing that their line will not be disconnected due to inactivity.
