Glo doesn't want to improve their data reliability and coverage, instead they spend huge sums of money getting celebrities to do adverts for them, I'm not surprised undecided
Funny enough they behave as if they don't know how bad their network is, let them wait for me to come and tell them cheesycheesy

The money Glo waste on Celebrities alone is enough to make their network the best in Nigeria. Anytime rain is falling their network disappear like spirit. I think nepotism is part of the problem of that company.

They started the 4G craze but it seems they have lost focus. Even in Ghana they no longer function as before.

You can count the number of people using Glo in Nigeria.

It is only Mtn and Airtel that are still the real operators of mobile telecommunication in Nigeria

Piss poor service is beginning to catch up with Globacom all their freebies cannot cover. My 9mobile flagship network remains exclusive for both calls and data. Hope they keep it trim. We don't want a crowd here.

Personally I pot to any network data that is reliable in my area. If all networks have good service, then I would have considered price. But for now I pot based on reliability.

For now Glo is reliable

They are zapping data and that makes it worse
Airtel is cheaper with a very good network
