    • Noticed it last night at Gbagada axes. Thought it was a network glitch, till I saw this news. But can’t surf the internet with it. Everytime I connect it changes to H+
      I’d given up on using glo 4G already. This is good.

  1. How can we check the status from our phone
    Prof do you mean I can have access to the 4g lte facilities on my 3g phone

  2. I live in Ilorin and I’ve been using Glo Internet since 2014. I’ve been patient with them.
    But when I bought my Nokia 2.1 in October 2018 I was told it didn’t have band 28 to support Glo 4G network. In June this year I upgraded to Nokia 7 Plus with manufacturer specifications stating band 28 among the 4G bands. Yet when I sent 4G to 400 it replied that I have to change my Phone to a 4G enabled. I told Glo and replied that my Phone didn’t have their 4G band. But sometime I do see LTE on my Phone. And when I told them, they said it didn’t mean the Phone compatible with their band.
    So as I read your info, I sent 4G to 400 here in Ilorin and still replied I didn’t have a 4G enabled Phone.
    How long will it take them to install this facility? Anyway, I’ve concluded that once my current data subscription finishes, I’ll switch to Airtel. Airtel has the wildest coverage of 4G.
