This post is therefore meant for all existing & prospective subscribers of Globacom network that will/may be interested in the glo internet data plans for browsing the internet
Activating the G/E/3G Network on your phone
Firstly, if your phone is not showing the G/E/3G sign on your glo line inserted phone, you would need to do some internet activation by simply sending ACTIVATE as a message to 127.

How to Get Free Internet data plans on Glo
To get free internet data plans, simply recharge your glo line with:
#200 to get 5MB Free data
#500 to get 25MB Free data
#1000 to get 50MB Free data
#2000 to get 100MB Free data
#5000 to get 500MB free data….. All for free on recharge.
A message will be sent to you to confirm the free browsing bonus upon loading any of the fore-mentioned recharge denominations but kindly ensure you load the exact amount to qualify. For example; To get 5MB FREE data, you should buy and load the single #200 glo recharge card. Buying two #100 recharge card will not work so ensure you get the exact amount on a single card for recharge.
