The unprecedented speed of the newly launched Globacom's 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) nationwide service has delighted subscribers who marveled at how Globacom has taken broadband to mobile services.
Corroborating Globacom’s claim that it's 4G LTE is the new speed of life, some of the subscribers who spoke to the press said the service has truly given life a new meaning.
The company launched the service last week and said everyone from governments to academic institutions, students, corporate institutions and small scale enterprises will benefit from the paradigm shift.
The service is already working in Lagos- Lekki, Ikoyi, V.I, Ajah and Akoka, Port Harcourt- Aba Road, Trans Amadi, Diobu, Old GRA and UNIPort, Warri, Eket and Benin, Abuja- Maitama, Wuse, Asokoro, Garki/Central Business District and Airport Road and Jos, Yola – ABTI and Zaria- ABU.
An elated information technology specialist, Njideka Okafor who lives in Abuja said: “I tell you, 4G is a lovely experience. The speed is phenomenal. And the indoor penetration is excellent. I have 4G signal in every part of my house. I was also among the first to upgrade my other line to 4G on another network. But the indoor penetration was poor and the phone only worked best near the front windows,” she said.
For Atitebi Ajijedidun, this is the time to put his 4G phone to work. “I have had a 4G phone for a while now. I was using it with 3G services. I simply purchased a 4G SIM to enable me optimize the capacity of the phone, so to speak. The difference is clear, I tell you. My videos download without any delay. Glo has done very well with this one", he said.
A lawyer based in Port Harcourt, Titus Ojemba described the speed of the service as ‘incredible’. He said he was “wowed by the speed .”
While giving his comment, Mohammed Aliyu, a secondary school teacher said he was impressed by the flexibility of the offerings.
