28 Feb 2006

Nigeria’s second national operator (SNO) Globacom has connected an additional 35 towns and cities to its mobile network Glo Mobile since January according to a report in local broadsheet Vanguard. The telco added five towns – Oju, Anywuogbu, Ochimodi, Ega and Ogengen – to the network last week alone and this week connected one of the county’s largest tourist resorts Obudu and its surrounding communities. The telco said its network has capacity for twelve million subscribers, and claimed around four million users at the end of 2005. Glo competes with MTN Nigeria, Vee Networks and M-Tel in the mobile market.
