Why Is Glo 4g A Dire Need When Considering Buying A Phone by mikeycharles(m): 4:40pm On Jan 12
Why do people insist on buying devices that support the Glo 4g band, it's becoming annoying and almost sounding like a gimmick. Immediately a device is mentioned, you will hear people asking "does it support GLO 4G", some of these people don't even use a GLO network but have this constant obsession with GLO's 4G band.
What are Tecno and Infinix users complaining about speed when y'all make use of mediatek processors clocked at 1.3GHz, for the love of God shut up and stop making silly banters about GLO 4G speeds when your devices can't even open Snapchat. y'all better stick to facebook lite and surfing nairaland and other mobile friendly sites.
I really love GLO but geez they're not the benchmark for network selection in Nigeria.

Cheap data bundle is the clue. With 3k you can get data up to 17gb

Nigerians and awuff, if you love the 4g speed why not get a wifi dongle or a device that support hotspot creation and use it to connect your phone and don't compromise your choice of enjoying a wonderful phone just because of GLO 4G.
Re: Why Is Glo 4g A Dire Need When Considering Buying A Phone by bigtt76(f): 5:05pm On Jan 12
The thoughts of carrying multiple phones about sends chill down your spine talkless of carrying a mifi or dongle. How do you power or charge a dongle/mifi to serve data to your phone? Even if it is laptop sef... How do you keep it running when you're on the move?

My Mifi lasts a whole day on moderate usage.

Op, i get your point. Glo is already bringing in another band.

I just can't imagine the feeling of people who left a better phone to choose another phone simply because of "Glo 4G" when Glo launches their band 3. grin

They need to add another band because their strong-headed decision to stay solely on band 28 is now affecting there subscriber base.

Glo 4G was more a factor when Airtel never introduce near Nation-wide 4G service.

They are the one feeling the hit
Re: Why Is Glo 4g A Dire Need When Considering Buying A Phone by lekjons(m): 9:08pm On Jan 12
That's because Glo 4g is kn band 28 which only a handful of phones supported in Nigeria.

And it feels kinda good to have a phone that supports as many 4g bands as possible..
