Glo launches 4G LTE in Lagos and 8 other cities in Nigeria

Although, the announcement on Glo's official twitter account claims that the Glo 4G LTE network has been launched nationwide but the 4G LTE coverage option on the *777# menu for Glo data says otherwise. According to reply tweets from followers and from my quick findings via my glo line, the 4G LTE network is only available in the following cities;
  • Lagos
  • Abuja
  • Portharcourt
  • Jos
  • Yola
  • Zaria
  • Benin
  • Warri 
  • Eket
While other cities in the country are advised to wait on it!

What are the available data plans on the Glo 4G LTE network?

The available data plans on the Glo 4G LTE network are indeed very similar to what you have on the Glo 3G network where N500 gives you 1.6GB, N2000 gives you 7.5GB. To subscribe, dial *777# > Select 1 to access the 4G LTE menu and make your subscriptions

Mind you, before you make plans to purchase it, make sure your phone is 4G capable, if not, get a 4G device before subscribing.   

Some Glo customers have already given it a shot and there's been positive result so far.
