How to Activate Your Glo Sim Card For 4G LTE Network
Yesterday we published an article on Glo 4G LTE service going live in Nigeria. Today I would love to throw some light on how to activate your Glo sim card so you can enjoy all the services of the new Glo 4G LTE.
It is necessary at this point to quickly mention that Glo data bundles even with 4g are still the most affordable in Nigeria. You can find the up to date full list of Glo data bundles here. Globacom is still but quickly expanding the availability of its 4G services all around Nigeria so be patient if it is not yet in your state (it will soon be available).
So let’s get to down to the main topic in today’s article. Now I will show a step by step process of how to activate your Glo sim card for 4G LTE lets begin.
First of all, make sure you have a 4G LTE enabled device. Glo has made it very easy for us to determine if our mobiles devices or phones are 4G compatible with their network. All you have to do is send a text message with the following information. Simply text ‘4G’ to 400 and you’ll receive a message telling you if its compatible or not.
Then, go to the nearby Glo office and buy a new 4G LTE SIM, get it registered or simply swap your normal Glo sim for a 4G LTE sim.
Once it has been successfully swapped, dial *777# to get any of the 4G available plans.
HOW DOES GLO 4G LTE SERVICE WORK WITH ALREADY EXISTING MODEMS, ROUTERS, MIFI
The Glo 4G LTE sim cards or rather service will continue work without any issues on a Glo 4G router or any Universal MiFi available to you. However, it will not work on a normal 3G Modem. Nonetheless, you may overcome this challenge/limitation by connecting your 4G enabled smartphone via hotspot to your MAC or PC.
