Total telecommunications solutions company, Globacom, is offering Nigerian pilgrims performing their Islamic religious obligation in Mecca the opportunity to share their Hajj experiences with loved ones back home.
In this regard, the company has unveiled a special Glo Data roaming package in partnership with Zain Saudi Arabia which enables subscribers to enjoy its data services in the Holy land for as low as N5/MB.
A statement from Glo disclosed that pilgrims will get 3GB for N15, 000 with 30 days validity, 1.25GB for N6,500 with 15 days validity, 600MB for N3,500 with 7 days validity, and 300MB for just N2,000 with 3 days validity.
To subscribe to any of these roaming packages, all a subscriber needs to do is to dial *777# and choose option 6 (data roaming).
Globacom explained that, besides its affordability, the data bundle can be purchased while in Nigeria and its validity starts when the subscriber lands in the Holy land.
“Subscribers are also in control of their usage and there are no fears of additional billing as they only use from the bundle they purchase. Glo also ensures that customers receive consumption messages several times to enable them monitor their depletion of the data purchased”, Globacom noted.
Since roaming services are activated by default on prepaid lines, the company urged subscribers to ensure they have sufficient balance on their account. Postpaid subscribers, however, need to activate roaming service before they purchase any of these bundles.
In addition to the special offer for the Hajj period, Globacom has a roaming partnership in Saudi Arabia and several other countries where its subscribers can enjoy seamless roaming services anytime they travel to any of these countries.
The countries include United Kingdom, United States, United Arab Emirates, Canada, Netherlands, France, Cameroon, Ghana, Germany, Kenya, Italy, South Africa, South Africa, Cote D’Ivoire, Switzerland, Niger, Croatia, Greece, Sweden, Senegal, Belgium, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Ireland, Malta, Sri Lanka, Qatar, Turkey, Benin, Luxembourg, Morocco, Hong Kong, Iceland, Poland, Vatican, San Marino, Liechtenstein, Monaco and Andorra.
