Globacom Nigeria has once again raised the bar higher in the telecommunications sector, this time, with the launch of glo jumbo (Sim) prepaid plan. The glo jumbo sim comes packed with #200,000 (Two hundred thousand) worth of airtime. Make no mistakes about it,that’s a whopping sum of #200,000 you just saw right there.
Glo jumbo sim prepaid plan comes as the default prepaid plan which welcomes new customers to the glo network with preloaded 200,000 airtime which can be used to browse,SMS and call glo customers. The airtime comes locked and is unlocked upon the value of each recharge made.
Every Glo jumbo sim comes with 200,000 bonus airtime but cannot be used as it is locked and can only be unlocked for usage when the sim is recharged with airtime. Each airtime recharge value has a proportional value of the bonus airtime it unlocks. When the bonus airtime is unlocked for usage it is being subtracted from the bonus airtime till the bonus airtime gets completely depleted or finally expires after a 6 month period.
The unlocked bonus is valid for 30days.
Below is a table that shows Recharge Amount,Main Account,Bonus Account (For Glo to Glo calls),Bonus data, Value of the bonus data and Total Value of all the bonuses.
Data Bonus (MB) Data Worth Total Value
100 100 500 50 1,600 2,200
200 200 1,000 100 3,200 4,400
500 500 2,500 250 8,000 11,000
1,000 1,000 5,000 500 16,000 22,000
5,000 5,000 25,000 2,500 8,000 110,000
When a recharge is made, the bonus airtime is split into main account, voice bonus accounts and data bonus account. Main account is for any type of usage (local and international calls,SMS and other value added services (VAS)), voice bonus account is for only Glo to Glo calls,data bonus account is for data to browse.
For example, if a customer on the Jumbo prepaid plan makes a recharge of #100, #2,200 bonus airtime is unlocked and subtracted from the FREE #200,000 jumbo bonus airtime. N100 goes to Main account for local and international calls, SMS, subscription based services and other value added services, #500 goes to Bonus account(for glo to glo calls) and 50MB data bonus (valued at #1,600)for browsing.
The total value for a recharge of #100 airtime is #2,200.Once an airtime recharge of #100 is made,the total bonus account of #200,000 goes down by #2,200 leaving a balance of #197,800.
If the same customer makes a 2nd recharge of #1,000, the sum of #16,000 is depleted from the balance of #197,800 left off the FREE Bonus Airtime. Of the #16,000 received, #1,000 goes to Main account, #5,000 goes to the voice Bonus account and 500MB (valued at #16,000) goes to the data bonus account . The customer at this point has #181,800 left in the unlocked Jumbo Bonus account which can be accessed when the next recharge is made.
Unlocked bonuses have a validity of 30days. After 30days any unused bonus left expires and disappears.
The more a recharge is the made the more the #200,000 jumbo bonus account is depleted. It goes on this way till the whole bonus account is depleted or finally expires after 6 months depending on which ever comes first.
The glo jumbo prepaid plan has a validity of 6 months after which all bonuses,both unlocked and locked, expires and the sim is automatically migrated to Glo Gbam plus prepaid plan.
