Spread the love


How does 10GB of Glo Internet data for just ₦2,500 sound to you?
Wait, don’t answer that, ₦2,500 na big money.
How about 3GB for just ₦500?
“Glo data plans are the cheapest in Nigeria”.
I’m sure you must have heard that statement somewhere, from someone.
You haven’t?
Ok. I am telling you now that Glo internet bundles are the cheapest in Nigeria at the moment.
Even after MTN data plans (as well as other mobile network providers’ bundles) saw a dramatic increase in data allocation over the past few weeks, Glo mobile’s internet subscription still remains the most pocket-friendly in Nigeria (so far).
Cheap. Cheap. Cheap. How cheap?
LOL. We talking up to 6GB of data for just ₦2k. There’s also the mad option of getting 18GB for ₦4k.
It’s not a joke, and so far there’s been no catch.
No catch in the sense that data consumption rates are normal, and the plans (yes all the plans in this article) can be used on any internet enabled device of your choice.
Be it an IPad, an Android smartphone, an IPhone, your internet modem, a PSP console, even a calculator ? just so long as it can access the internet.
Ok, I’m tired of talking let’s just have the subscription codes and go.

Best GLO Data Plans in Nigeria at the Moment
Just like I did for other plans, the plans in this article will be categorized by validity periods, so here we go.
GLO Daily Internet Bundles
Plans in this category are the best in Nigeria at the moment. Think I’m wrong? Just see for yourself;
30MB for ₦50
Ok, Globacom is high!
Not too long ago, I was jubilating that “almighty MTN” bumped up the data allocated to their ₦100 day plan and GLO just made it seem like peanuts!
For just ₦50, you get 30MB allocated to you to surf the internet for 24hours.
This plan is just perfect for those times when you are out of airtime (and data) and really need to get something done ASAP.
To opt-in,
Dial 12714#
Text “14” to 127
100MB for ₦100
Who remembers the time when one used to get this same amount of data for a thousand naira?
Chai! Those times were really horrible.
For ₦100, Glo gives you 100MB to browse the internet for a whole day.
To subscribe,
Dial 12751#
Text “51” to 127
200MB for ₦200
More like an extension of the two previous plans, you can now get 200MB internet data allocated to you for just ₦200. Unlike plan 1 and 2, this one is valid for 3 good days.
To get this plan,
Dial 12756#
Text “56” to 127
GLO Weekly Internet Bundles
There are two plans highlighted on Glo’s official website, but only one of them is actually worth being on this article.
1GB for ₦500
Airtel and MTN offer 750MB for this same amount, but GLO thinks you deserve more than that.
Valid for over a week (10 days actually), you get 1GB Internet surfing data when you pay GLO ₦500 for their big week plan.
To subscribe,
Dial 12757#

GLO Monthly Internet Bundles
Ok, this is where the ice breaks.
Data plans here are no joke. I’m dead sure data resellers in Nigeria would be looking for another business model at the moment or they could offer unlimited data for pennies (that would be the only reasonable option).
I talk too much. Just see the bundles;
2GB for ₦1,000
This is not a joke, it actually works. On Glo, you get 2GB data allocated to you for ₦1,000 (0.5GB higher than what you’ll get elsewhere).
This plan would be convenient for most “regular” internet users (I’m thinking about my Mom right now) as the pricing is almost perfect.
Valid for 30 days, this bundle is one you should be using if you are on GLO and you’re a light internet user.
To opt-in;
Dial 12753#

6GB for ₦2,000
laughing hysterically
GLO just killed their Blackberry comonth plan with this – if not for you, at least for me (there’s no way I’m subscribing to that piece of sh*t any longer).
At ₦2,000 GLO offers you an enormous 6GB of internet goodness which is valid for 30 good days!
If GLO Mobile’s internet service is solid in your locality, then this is the plan to subscribe for on your smartphone.
But wait:
Before you start recharging, have a look at the next plan. I’m promising you, just reading about it will make your day.
To get 6GB @ ₦2k,
Dial 12755#
Text “55” to 127
10GB for ₦2,500
Just adding ₦500 to the amount you pay for plan 6 gives you an additional 4GB!
Shey I told you this would make your day?
This plan like the other is only valid for 30 days, so if you are a heavy internet user (on a smartphone), this should by all means be your sub.
To get this plan,
Dial 12758#
Text “58” to 127
12GB for ₦3,000
This one’s gonna be my honey, or no, I think the next plan will be.
Power internet users with good GLO coverage in your area, this is yours.
For ₦3,000 you could be 12GB internet data richer for 30 days.
To opt-in,
Dial 12754#
Text “54” to 127
18GB for ₦4,000
I don’t know who is in charge of the “data allocation department” in GLO, but that folk deserves a candy.
Small scale internet business owners/Bloggers, what more could you ask for?
Except connectivity is bad in your area, I see no other logical reason why this should not be the plan to go for.
Also valid for 30 days, you are allocated 18 wonderful Gigabytes of internet awesomeness for just ₦4k
To get this,
Dial 12759#
Text “59” to 127.
I’m tired of ranting.
There are still more awesome Glo monthly data plans (like 90GB for ₦18k), but to be honest, I don’t know what to type around them so please pardon me and consume the summary below;Plan Validity Opt-in Code
24GB @ ₦5,000 30 days 1272#
48GB @ ₦8,000 30 days 1271#
60GB @ ₦15,000 30 days 12712#
90GB @ ₦18,000 30 days 12713#
GLO Night and Weekend Plans
1GB for ₦200 (One night stand)
This is by far, one of the cheapest among its peers, but with such a mouthwatering price, there are perks.
This plan works only at night (from 12am – 5am) for just one night!
This plan is for nocturnal folks (I’m proudly one) who want to GTD and move on.
To subscribe,
Dial 12760#
SMS “60” to “127”
3GB for ₦500 (7 nights + full weekend)
Of all the sub-₦500 plans, this is the one I use and recommend. I’ve jumped ship!
Here’s the deal:
For ₦500, you get allocated 3GB of data for an entire week, but there are restrictions.
On weekdays (Mon – Fri), the plan only works at night (12am – 5am), but for Saturdays and Sundays, the plan works 24hours.
Remember, The plan is only valid for a week!

One last thing;
How to use these Glo Data Plans on your BB10 device
Ok, the emails have been rolling in on whether or not the bundles highlighted in this article work on Blackberry 10 devices.
Simple answer:
Yes, they do. In fact, flawlessly. But there’s a twist.
To be able to use these plans on your BB 10 device, you would have to change the APN (Access point Name) of your device from “” or whatever that was there to “glosecure”.
Wait, let me make it more comprehensive:
To use these plans on your BB10, change your APN from whatever it is to “gloflat”
