SAD: GLO Reduced Their 3G and 4G LTE Data Bundles

Glo the grand master of data has put some frowns on the face of his customers. Sad to say that Glo has reduced their data bundle, both the 3G data bundle and the 4G LTE data bundle. But the prices still remains the same.

Though, Glo has once offered us cheap data bundles at a fair price, but with a slow network speed. I still don't know what came over them overnight that made them to revisit their data plans. Is it recession or what? I still can't say!

Even at that, Etisalat reduced their weekly data bundle from 200MB to 150MB for N200 and now Glo NG have decided to show us their other side of them. Be that as it may, let's have a look at Glo's new data plans, prices and comparison with the old data plans.

Former Glo data Plans
N500 = 1.6GB 7days
N1000 = 3.2GB 30days
N2000 = 7.5GB 30 days
N2500 = 10GB 30days
N3000 = 12GB 30days

Current Data Plans

  1. N500 = 800MB
  2. N1000 = 1.6GB
  3. N2000 = 3.7GB
  4. N2500 = 5GB
  5. N3000 = 6GB


This is really a sad news to Glo customers in Nigeria, if you asked me. Does it mean that GLO purposely increased the data plans earlier on to get new customers to them or what? If you check the old and new data plans very closely, you will noticed that GLO drastically slashed the data into two which is really a sad one. Anyway, let's hear what you have to say about this change from Glo.

Instagram Announced Hitting 700 Million Users

Facebook owned social network -Instagram- has happily announced hitting 700 million users. This figure was reached after 4 months of hitting 600 million users. That is, Instagram added 100 million users in just 4 months, which is amazingly impressive.

Instagram now has 700 million users, 100 million more than it did last December. So those last 100 million users were added in just four months. That number is amazingly almost equivalent to Snapchat's entire 161 million user base. The recent growth is the fastest in Instagram's history. Going from 500 million to 600 million took five months in 2016.

Of course Instagram is nowhere near Facebook's numbers, but its niche focus explains that. The big blue social network boasts more than 1.8 billion users. Facebook-owned WhatsApp and Messenger both hit 1.2 billion recently, and it really looks like Facebook the company has officially won at the social thing - in part simply because it has so many different offerings in this space.

Infinix S2 Pro Starts Receiving Android 7 Nougat update

If you could recall, i said earlier that Infinix Mobility will surely release Nougat update for the Infinix s2 Pro; and now, it's here. Infinix S2 Pro that came running on Android 6 Marshmallow has started receiving Android 7 Nougat update.

If you are an S2 Pro user, you should get the update notification via OTA. The new software update is available via OTA (over the air), and it weighs in at around 1.8GB in size. You probably need to connect to a fast Wi-Fi network and also charge your battery to at least 80% before proceeding with the software update.

Besides the benefits of Nougat, this software update brings other optimisations to the Infinix S2 Pro as well as fixes for minor bugs.

Now that Nougat OS is available for the Infinix S2 Pro, i guess you should go get your own S2 Pro now, if Nougat was the reason you didn't bother buying the phone when it was newly launched.

If you feel impatient, or can't wait for the update to arrive on your S2 Pro via OTA notification, then you should check for the update manually by heading over to your Handset's Settings menu > About Phone > System update.

Infinix S2 - Phone Specifications and Price

After releasing Infinix S2 Pro weeks ago, Infinix Mobility has yet launched the smaller variant called Infinix S2. They shared almost the same specifications and features. They are just the successors of the Infinix Hot S.

Infinix Hot S2 is a 4G LTE enabled smartphone with a 5.2-inch display. A key selling point are the dual selfie cameras. This setup won’t produce Bokeh effects though, but rather wide angle selfies. I still don't know why Infinix Mobility preloaded this phone with Android 6 Marshmallow out of the box. They should have preloaded it with Android Nougat instead.

Hopefully, Infinix Mobility will provide a Nougat update soon. Do not forget that the S2 has a more capable sibling – the Infinix S2 Pro. Have a look at the full Infinix S2 specifications below.

ZTE to Build Airtel Nigeria's 4G LTE Network

Airtel has officially announced a plan to partner with Chinese firm, ZTE, to build their own 4G LTE network in Nigeria. If you have been waiting patiently for Airtel to launch their own 4G LTE network, then wait a bit, as Airtel is partnering with ZTE company to launch their 4G LTE service.

Airtel became the first telecoms operator in the country to complete a successful 4G trial in Lagos, yet is the last to deploy. Last year, 2016, other big competitors like MTN, Glo and Etisalat launched their own 4G LTE network, leaving people wondering what Airtel is waiting for to launch their own 4G LTE service.

Before now, we have existing 4G LTE providers in Nigeria which includes but not limited to Ntel, MTN, GLO, Etisalat, InterC, Smile, Spectranet and Swift. As we all know, 4G LTE is a global mobile standard that delivers broadband internet to supported smartphones, tablets, USB modems and MiFi devices.

For now, there's no official date of how long the building of their 4G LTE network will take. Atleast, we should have it in mind that Airtel 4G LTE is on the way coming, even if it's not coming soon.
