Globacom celebrates Nigeria decade milestone

29 August 2013, 12:29

Lagos - Globacom, the indigenous telecommunication firm, marked its tenth anniversary on Thursday with its subscribers commending it for its innovations and contribution to Nigeria’s economic growth.

Founded by billionaire businessman, Mike Adenuga, Globacom launched its operations on August 29 2003, two years after digital mobile telecommunication services were introduced into the country.

The company, which currently has about 25 million subscribers in Nigeria, has since expanded its operations to other neighboring Africa countries such as Ghana and Togo.

The telecom company has also won operating licenses in Senegal, Ivory Coast and Gambia.

The company's submarine cable, Glo 1, has also helped the company revolutionalize telecommunication services in the country.

As Globacom celebrated its milestone on Thursday, subscribers commended it.

One of the subscribers, Nkem Nnorom said: “It is amazing how time flies. I have been using this network since they came on board and I must say it has been a worthwhile experience. Their services are wonderful and I commend them for making life easy for us."

Another subscriber, Kemi Akinyele said Glo management deserved praise.

"Mike Adenuga deserves praise. I commend him for making real impact in the life of Nigerians with his company,” Akinyele said.

“The company has done well in terms of quality of services and products. I congratulate the management team and wish them all the best,” she added.

Daniel Okere, a student of the University of Lagos urged the company to reward subscribers who have remained loyal to Globacom.

“I have been loyal to them for 10 years. I think everyone on this network deserve a huge reward. The promotion to mark this anniversary should reward everyone and not just a five subscribers,” he said.
