  1. I am not sure What’s going wrong with 9mobile, i guess their data isn’t cheap enough but for glo they duly deserve the down turn of subscribers. As far as I’m concerned i believe everything is wrong with glo. I’m even surprised we still have over 25 Million subscribers on glo network. Mtn still the King of the park.

  2. Glo own is understandable but what is 9mobile excuse for losing subscribers. Perhaps they should consider reducing their data costs while glo improves their network service

  3. Its not surprising at all. Infact, its either they improve on their service or watch as they lost more subscribers

  4. To me all these subscriber loss are just token and they cant feel or noticed any changes in lost of subscriber because the Million digit are not changing its just some hundred, if the loss is about 2-5 millions, they will sit right

  5. Glo is paying for cutting down 👇 in the size of their data bundle plans and for snail 🐌 speed 3G internet service

  6. Very soon glo will be nothing to write home about.
    9mobile i think there data bundle is on the high side thats why

  7. Mtn is expensive but their network is normal. As long u have the money to subscribe it. I can’t count how many times I dumped my glo sim including the data inside.

  8. I see glo Internet subscribers dropping below 10 million may be that will send sense to them and do something about their useless network

  9. for glo i am not suprised but for 9moblie i guess many have not discovered this cheap 9mobile bundle 1gb for #200 gotten by dialing *929*10# that is what i have been using, serves me well on my phone
