The company said from now on it would pay its subscribers rents for using their phones to provide shelter for their Glo SIMs just like tenants pay rents to landlords.
Launching the product in Lagos on Wednesday, July 10, Globacom’s Coordinator Marketing, Mr. Adeniyi Olukoya, said the company was the first telecoms network in Nigeria to reward subscribers for accommodating its SIM in their handsets. Continue...
He explained that the rental fee would be credited to the subscriber’s phone daily once it was confirmed that a subscriber used at least N50 worth of talk time the previous day. “Cumulatively, a loyal subscriber could get up to N1,500 in a month as rental bonus from Glo,” he added.
According to him, the N50 rental bonus must be utilised for calls or SMS within the Glo network from 12 midnight until 9 a.m., adding that the benefit was opened to all existing and new prepaid Glo customers as well as subscribers on other networks interested in becoming "phonelords".
He encouraged subscribers who were yet to join the Glo happy family to do so without further delay, "so as to enjoy Globacom’s array of innovative and pocket-friendly products and services".
“This is another way Globacom gives back to its customers who have remained loyal to it in the last 10 years,” Olukoya stated.
He said that subscribers wishing to enjoy the benefit should dial *170*7# and press the send key.
