Glo subscribers to make calls on credit

18 March 2014, 14:08Henry Ifeanyi

Lagos - One of the country’s mobile network operators, Globacom has introduced a product that would allow subscribers make calls on credit.

Globacom said the new offer, called ‘Borrow Me Credit', was part of its continuous efforts to deliver more value to its subscribers.

Officials said the product would enable prepaid subscribers to receive airtime on an advance basis when they run out of airtime during emergency periods or when Airtime vendors are not easily accessible.

Adeniyi Olukoya, Globacom’s Marketing Co-ordinator of Borrow Me Credit, said the new product allowed prepaid subscribers on the Glo network to send a request to a specified USSD code under emergency situations and receive airtime of different denominations, depending on their profile on the network.

The initial denominations, according to Olukoya, available are N50, N100, N200, N500 and N1 000.

He said that the package was testimony to the trust that Glo had placed in its loyal subscribers as well as an evidence of Glo’s commitment to ensuring that its customers are totally unlimited as they pursue their dreams.

“Within minutes of requesting for the service, subscribers will receive the airtime requested and get confirmation through a text message. The credited money is taken back from the Glo prepaid subscriber when they recharge their account next time,” he said. 

Olukoya further explained that the credit could be used like a normal recharge for making outgoing calls, sending SMS as well as uploading and downloading data on the internet.

“Globacom recognizes that, sometimes, there are situations when customers run out of account balance, either late at night or while travelling and they have to look for where to buy recharge cards to top up their accounts. This product will save them from unnecessary stress and make it easy to get airtime for such emergencies,” he said.
