According to Globacom’s General Manager, Marketing, Mr. Ashutosh Tiwary, Glo Bolt thrives on “speed and performance and, with the service, the subscriber is always a winner because we recognise that speed is a driver of value. The service offers users world-class internet service never before experienced in Nigeria and facilitates easy handling of internet applications on modems, tablets, smart phones and other devices. Our customers are assured of the best browsing experience and best value for money”.

Speaking on the subscription plans, he explained that the Sharing feature would offer the subscriber convenience and affordability by enabling him to share internet subscription with friends, family and loved ones instead of buying multiple subscriptions for each and every one of them.
