Globacom’s increase in internet subscriber base has, therefore, reconfirmed its position as the number one company in Nigeria’s data market, thus living up to the payoff, “Grand masters of Data.”
It will be recalled that Globacom became the first network to launch a nationwide rollout of the 4G LTE advanced network in October through which subscribers on the Glo network have been enjoying instant efficient broadband internet connectivity across the country.
The NCC report further showed that the total number of internet users on the networks of the four major operators dropped from 93.5m in September to 93.1m in October, a reduction of 378,015.
During the period, MTN lost 306,480, moving from 32,771,259 million internet subscribers on its network in September to 32,464,779 in October.
