Glo boosts data usage on Nigerian campuses with Campus Booster

Students of institutions of higher learning in the country can now have unhindered access to internet browsing and downloading within their campuses as next generation telecoms network, Globacom, has launched a first-of-its-kind product tagged Glo Campus Booster.

Designed to aid academic activities and social networking among students and staff of tertiary institutions across Nigeria, the Glo Campus Booster will, among other benefits, support and improve education standards, create intellectual wealth for students, and provide access to information on research topics and thesis writing.

At the official launch of the product at Globacom’s headquarters in Lagos on Wednesday, the company’s Senior Manager, Events and Sponsorship, Mr. Sola Mogaji, said that the Glo Campus Booster is a special data plan that allows students and others on campus to get up to eight times more data value whenever they use their Glo lines on campuses.

For instance under the Glo Campus Booster, a N200 data recharge will guarantee a subscriber 400MB of data which is eight times more than the 50MB of data a subscriber would normally get with a N200 recharge.

In the same vein, a recharge of N500 will give 1 gigabyte of data on campus. The service is available on all Nigerian campuses nationwide, including Military, Police, Customs and Immigration training institutions, Mr. Mogaji explained.

According to him, “Students as well as staff on campuses can enjoy this offer when they subscribe to a Glo Campus Data Plan of N200 and above. They will subsequently enjoy enhanced data offered while used in the campuses”. He further explained that another juicy feature of the package is that theGlo Campus Data Plans can be gifted to another subscriber on any other campus within the country.

He said as soon as any subscriber on the Campus Data Plan enters a school campus anywhere in Nigeria, “You will be notified via a flash message that you have entered a Glo Campus Zone”, he disclosed

Mogaji urged Nigerians wishing to register to enjoy the huge benefits of Glo Campus Booster to dial *777# to chose a preferred plan from N200 and above.

He said Globacom decided to offer the Campus Booster, having realized the dearth of internet facilities on Nigerian campuses, and the need to enhance education and social integration through the provision of adequate data plan for students.

“Globacom is a world class brand, re-engineered to provide voice and data services bundled with great devices. We are more committed than ever before to provide best value for money and making our products and services more accessible to our customers,” he added.

The launch was attended by student union leaders from the University of Lagos, the Lagos State University and the University of Ibadan. Speaking on behalf of the students, Suleiman Adeyemi Wasiu, President, Lagos State University Students’ Union Government, said “it is a welcome idea. First, it will make researches easier and cheaper and secondly it is a form of economic advantage as it will drive traffic into the school which would boost economic activities on campus. We plead that Glo should not stop the product”.

The Social Secretary, University of Lagos, Mr. Roland Onyeka, who led his school’s delegation, said, “The Campus Booster is a good product which will make life easier and cheaper on campus. It will facilitate our research and assignments which we have to put on PDF files. It will also keep us more on the campus as we can now download our favourite movies without going.”
