Glo Free MB & Dubious Configurations by worldgee: 2:29pm On May 19, 2012
Hi ALL,

Has anyone really thought much on why Glo network has 3 diff. configurations (if not more than that) for internet browsing: atleast, I know of Glosecure, Glodirect, Glogwap, Gloflat, etc all with diff APNs, user name & password? While MTN, Airtel & Etisalat have only one each irrespective of customers subcriptions.

Now I noticed a FRAUD lately with Glo free MB. From experience, dis only works with Gloflat data configuration being:
APN: gloflat
User name: flat
Password: flat
Authentication: normal
No proxy settings.

But check it out now, if u try connect with dis configuration, it loads til eternity & never connects. Meanwhile, just make a little switch from Gloflat configuration to any other Glo setting on ur phone, u'll discover it connects within a split of seconds BUT guess what? Ur credit balance is depleting fast.

I saw dis as a fraud & contacted their customer service via e-mail. They replied by asking me 2 send INFO to 127 to obtain auto configuration: thinking it wil be diff frm d one I already have, but just no difference. Contacting them again, their contact person recommended Glogwap & at subsequent response, they said try Glosecure, Glodirect, etc. None of these work on free MB but on my credit balance. So disaappointing.

Does anyone in d house have similar experience? What do we do? Is Glo free MB becoming a fraud indeed? If yes, couldn't it have been better for Glo 2 b silent on d issue of free MB & just leave customers to be prepared to spend their money while browsing than 2 b lure into loading unnecessary credit anticipating free MB only 2 still end up spendin d credit they wouldn't loaded if not for d free MB.

Pls reasosnable comments here on this for d way forward 2 d browsing public.

Thanks all. One love
