  1. Why the exploitation i pay for my bis that’s blackberry suscription.bt when i don’t have credit on my Line i can’t make use of d bis .the minute i recharge then i will now be able to browse.my number is 08076896841

  2. Nawa 4 glo nwk despite alot of customer are complaining still de ar getin worse everyday by day. I plead 2 dem 2 somtin abt the netwk b4 all there customers wil turn back at dem. becos i personally can use my glo 2 make call 4 d past 3weeks now.

  3. I wish 2 tanks my glo network team 4 their good coverage of their network.
    But i also blame them 4 failing their customers,i have been using glonetwork 4 long time now since 2003 and up till date i never benefit any thing from them,when i hard that they re doing promo i was happy nd i say let me try my luck and 4 God seck as it is their first time they fall my hand by saying NCC stop all the promo.If i may ask why they do not contact ncc b4 going ahead with the promo and is it that MTN are not working with NCC direct or how?, they gave up their promo 2 its customers.For we that invested much in the text and win promo what re they going to do?.I west all my time and money cracking my brain 4 the promo at last noting tangible comes from it.Am pls pleading to my good glo team to pls do something on it so that i wil not regret of using their network

  4. I use to recomend glo network to other people before but now I’ve dislike dem because they are not faithful to their customers interm of promo, high tariff, MB for internet browsing n they av bad network n also poor customer care. I av called customer care several time all they av to say is NCC av suspended all promo but other network are still giving free MB n airtime when u recharge wit certain amount. I do imagine if gloacom make research as MTN do. Instead of waste money on unprofitable things while not spend such money on reseach in order to know your SWOT analysis, inshort am disappointed in using GLO network

  5. We all curse Mtn bt so far there are d cheapest,I have 2 mtn sims.d first is zone wehere I call for as low as 4k/sec.and d other is my f n f where I call for 10k/sec.MTN now gives free 5MB wen u recharge 100buks.Glo does notin other than Pay Nollywood actors n actresses millions of naira to show their dirty teeths on billboards.Glo BYE BYE…..ur call rates shud only be used by our Abuja politicians

  6. With airtel 2good clasic, all calls is being charge 18kb per sec. Pls glo customers kindly dump your glo line for aitel because is 2 cheap

  7. Glo ntwork is fine but since they want to use customer loyalty to exploit, i simply stop recharging on Glo. Etisalat will soon replace them. Glo have a rethink, we like glo.

  8. I advice glo to go back to infineto, even it is 18 naira per minute to every network we wouldn’t mind. I was attracted to infineto but now, without infineto, i am running away from glo.

  9. Dear Glo, i somuch love ur ntwork. but, with introduction of dis plan, i thing guys ar not smilling at all. pls do something b4 sometin do ur lines. Rule ur world

  10. I don’t know what is wrong with glo why would they have to bring this glo gista of a thing ?? Its does not worth it at all if care is not being taking I will join etisalat soon and leave Glo they need to improve this package oooooo. B4 person die for here .. GlO BBM SERVICE DEY SUCK FoR MY AREA AT AGURA IKORODU .make u na kon do something b4 MTN and other network take u na customer finish. Shooooooooo

  12. Well, it is good to leave those pple already in infinitobecase not every us are coming from the same sliver spoon. Please, consider d lesser pple

  13. this package is so unstable and costs so much to make calls now.now people are joining the glo network,glo comes up with a plan to make things a bit difficult for their subscribers.glo,gista doesn’t make sense,infinito will make ua company grow more…good evening people

  14. This gistar, is not visible.i join it now and i call for 2mins ur. Network deducted 40naira 60kobo. This is unfair. Pls return my money ooooo. GLO: Rule Your WOrld..
