10 June 2015, 07:54Okoro Chinedu

Lagos - Globacom, the mobile network operator, reported a positive response to its services from government and corporate organisations following its network upgrade.

The company embarked on a massive network upgrade in 2014 to enhance service delivery.

Head of Corporate Sales of Globacom, Kamaldeen Shonibare, said the exercise had given it the edge over other operators.

Among sectors that have “pitched their tent” with Glo for their voice and data needs include oil and gas, manufacturing, banking, food and beverage, insurance and religion, among others.

Some of the organizations include the United Nations, Dangote, Chevron, Seplat, Halliburton Energy, Addax, NIPCO, Sterling Oil, Septa, Sterling Bank, Stanbic IBTC and FCMB.

Shonibare disclosed that Glo was also popular in the public sector, with the Presidency, Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS), Ministries of Internal Affairs and Aviation, the Nigerian Police Force (NPF), the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC), the Nigerian Army and the Nigerian Navy.

“We have a very dynamic team as well as a huge capital base, and we are able to design very flexible packages to suit the specific needs of our customers. These stand us out in the market,” said Shonibare.

Globacom is in the cut-throat mobile network industry alongside other firms as MTN, Etisalat and Airtel.
