Globacom Glo

gloSubscribers on the Glo network will enjoy 50 percent discount on calls made to popular international destinations as the company has launched a new International Direct Dialling (IDD) promo.

Under this promo, calls made to all lines in the United States, Canada, India and China as well as calls to fixed lines in the United Kingdom will be charged at half the cost.

Globacom’s Head of Glo Gateway, Steve Stretch, explained in a press statement in Lagos, that 50 percent discount is available on the IDD pack which attracts a rental charge of N500 with N500 bundled airtime for 30 days’ validity period.  Rather than paying 20 kobo per second for international calls to these destinations, the subscriber only pays 10 kobo per second.

Mr Stretch urged subscribers on the network to take advantage of the IDD Promotion to connect and talk at a cost-effective rate with their friends and relations in the countries covered by the promo during this festive season.

The IDD promo complements the Glo Unlimited Roaming promo which allows Glo subscribers who travel outside the country to receive calls on their lines free for 15 days.

Stretch said the offer comes with a subscription fee of N2,500 for a validity period of 15 days.

Roaming subscribers will also enjoy up to 60 minutes of outgoing calls at a competitive rate of N100 per minute. The offer includes 15 free SMS and ability to browse the internet at 15 kobo per kilobyte.

He explained that the roaming plan is currently available in 27 countries including the United States, United Kingdom, Italy, Netherland, South Africa, Norway, Sweden, India, Spain, Switzerland, Canada, Brazil and Cameroon, adding that “there are plans to extend it to more destinations.”
