Globacom gained the highest number of Internet users in September of 2015 with over a million new Internet users on its network, according to 2015 third quarter statistics featured by the NCC on its website.
The stats showed that Globacom had 21,896,229 Internet users on its network as at the end of September, up from 20,765,379 data users in August. The figure showed an addition of 1,130,850 new Internet subscribers within the period.
Globacom’s figure surpasses the combined total of 716,450 new Internet subscribers who joined the three other major telecom operators in the country – MTN, Airtel and Etisalat – in September.
A break down of that figure showed that MTN recorded 423,448 new Internet users on its network. Airtel recorded 235,941 new data subscribers, while Etisalat recorded 57,061 new data subscribers joining the network.
The growth in the number of data subscribers on the Globacom network has been attributed to the improved data services which followed the network improvement exercise it carried out and the launch of several attractive and user-friendly packages which offer a lot of appeal to data users.
Some of the packages include the Free Tomorrow promo; Campus Booster; Bumper Data Offer, and the Twin Bash promo, which gives subscribers who recharge with N200 up to 200 MB of data worth N800, along with full value of the airtime recharged.
