Glo Introduces “New Infinito” No Conditions Tariff Plan

Glo has introduced what they consider “the best value offer in the country’s telecom industry”. Under the new tariff, called New Infinito, Glo subscribers now pay only 25 kobo per second for calls made to any network in Nigeria.

This 25kobo, unlike other similar packages in the market does not have any rental, hidden charges, or conditions attached to it.

The 25 kobo per second charge is a flat rate which applies for all local calls irrespective of which network is being called or time of day or which part of the country the call is originating from.

New Infinito also allows subscribers to call one Special Number at only 2 kobo per second. Interestingly, no daily or monthly rental is charged to enjoy the very cheap rate. The subscriber, however, has an option of registering 5 Glo numbers which he can call at 18 kobo per second. Again, registration is free and there is no rental charge.

In addition to the amazing tariffs, Glo is also offering up to 20% bonus on recharges made by subscribers. N500 recharge attracts a 10% bonus credit, while N1000 recharge will give the customer 15% bonus air time. On the other hand, N5,000 recharge gives a 20% bonus credit to the customer.

Again, Glo New Infinito offers free night calls from 12 midnight to 5 a.m. Subscribers are expected to have used up to N200 air time in the previous week to qualify to make free night calls for the next 7 days.

Globacom’s Group Chief Operating Officer, Mohamed Jameel, said the new tariff package was designed to offer subscribers real value for their money and shows Glo is best value provider in the market.

We are offering a new tariff plan that gives the customer MAXIMUM VALUE. You are charged 25 kobo right from the first second to the last second. Competing tariffs either charge monthly daily rentals or charge higher for the first 60 seconds and drop the rates for subsequent seconds. When you do the calculations properly and add the rental payment or consider the charge for the first 60 seconds, you will realize such tariffs are indeed not as attractive as they are made to look.

“But with the new Glo offer, the subscriber gets a truthful and easy-to-understand payment plan. For instance, while the Glo subscriber pays N15 for first minute of call made within and outside the network, other networks charge between N24 and N30 for calls within the network and between N30 and N36 for calls going outside the network,” Jameel noted.

The Glo GCOO explained that even where other networks drop their tariff from the second minute, the rental or first minute high charge robs off any savings the customer may have made. “This can be illustrated with a 3-minute or 5-minute call on the Glo network for which the subscriber will pay N45 or N75 respectively. The same durations of call on other networks will be charged at between N60 and N104 and between N90 and N174 respectively depending on the operator. Glo is, therefore, by far the most affordable network.” Jameel affirmed.

    That’s good

  • NNENNE April 18, 2011 at 1:38 am

    Good to know.

  • tbn April 18, 2011 at 3:46 pm

    Good stuff, this would give other networks a run for their money, especially mtn. Its a shame that mtn does not consider ways of making their subscribers pay less for their services, until they see their competitors like glo, do so. This is in spite of the fact that they were the first in the market and have made immense profit on this business. I still remember when mtn recharge card cost about 10-20k to buy in those days.

  • vee April 18, 2011 at 8:23 pm

    The question we should ask on these new osho free services is how the networks plan to increase ‘bandwidth’ in order to support all the new traffic these sorta promos bring. MTN’s network has been super crappy since they introduced the ‘magic number’ promo.

  • oladipo olawale April 21, 2011 at 4:13 pm

  • Juba Olusegun April 26, 2011 at 12:10 pm

    I apopreciate the fact that GLO has rolled-out another customer friendly plans but what good is it if willing customers can’t, in actual sense, register the so-called f & f numbers? GLO, make good your laudable plans and give MTN another challenge. Thanks.

    God bless GLO. You have continued the good work you started as far back as 2003. You actually saved Nigerians and even foreigners from tariff and communication slavery.
    The case MTN feels they have with you does not count, but what counts is that our good Lord is reciprocating the good smiles you have put in peoples faces in terms of cheap and considerable call rates to all networks. You will not be shaken. Keep GLOING with good tariffs.

  • CHIMEZIE T. CHIBUZOR July 29, 2011 at 10:21 am

  • Newton Eze May 7, 2012 at 9:28 am

    Of what use are all these tariff plans if customers can’t migrate to them?
    Abt half or more comments here are basically ‘customer complaints’.
    These migration codes are just not working for many people.
    Perhaps, this is a ploy used to ensure glo does not lose too much money from this tariff. If nt, hw can u fathom the fact that the code works for some, and does not work for the others.
    I just need to be sure that the code would work for me before i buy a glo sim.

  • bob v May 22, 2012 at 6:35 pm
