Announcing the new product in its corporate headquarters in Lagos, Globacom’s Head, Usage and Retention, Mr. Sola Mr. Arowogbadamu, listed the three reloaded products to be Double Free Tomorrow, 11k/s for All and IDD Packs.
According to Arowogbadamu, Glo Borrow Me Data allows subscribers, who have been on the network for a period of time, and have used a certain average monthly data, to borrow Data credit of up to 2GB whenever their data bundles are exhausted and they have no airtime balance to recharge their data plan or in cases of unsuccessful subscription bundle activation due to low balance.
Customers, he added, can subscribe to Borrow Me Data by dialling *321# and following the menu options. The service will then push real time Data credit to all eligible subscribers in line with the stated eligibility criterion. The customer will repay the Data credit whenever he recharges.
On Double Free Tomorrow, he said it gives back to the subscriber 200% of whatever is spent on calls, SMS or data today to use for free the next day.
