Call it a prayer answered or anything else but it seems Glo is about to improve their data services and if this works out, I believe a lot of us would stop complaining about their internet speed.Globacom Set To Improve Internet Speed With 12 Terabytes Submarine Cable 1
 On a stable 3G connection, presently the fastest speed I’ve ever gotten on my Glo SIM is 400kb/s. Imagine having to download a 2GB file on that speed.

I bet you can relate to that feeling Glo has unveiled a a multi-billion naira optic fiber submarine cable project. Tagged Glo 2, the roadmap for this project was unveiled at a contract-signing ceremony between Globacom, and Huawei at Eko Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos, on Tuesday.Globacom Set To Improve Internet Speed With 12 Terabytes Submarine Cable 3
According to Globacom’s Regional Director, Technical, Mr. Sanjib Roy:

“The new submarine cable will be approximately 850 kilometres long and will be integrated to Globacom’s existing terrestrial Backbone Network to provide additional service redundancy, especially in Abuja and other parts of the country.

It will have the capacity of transferring data at 12 Terabytes per second and will provide ultra-high speed connection to every community to improve data coverage and support the Enterprise market growth in this part of Nigeria.Globacom Set To Improve Internet Speed With 12 Terabytes Submarine Cable 4
According to the Managing Director of Huawei Nigeria, Mr Li Beifang :

“Huawei is proud to partner with Globacom to build a revolutionary submarine cable using innovative and leading technology. We believe the cable would bring a new era of digitalization to Nigerian economy”.

Glo 2 will complement the Glo 1 international submarine cable built by Globacom in 2010. It is currently the only international submarine cable in Nigeria managed end to end, from Lagos to London, by one Company and provides enough bandwidth for the West African sub-region.

2 Best Ways to Extend your Data Plan 16

If there’s anything you need more aside from food, then it’s probably data.

Civilization has gotten more digital than ever, tech has rapidly evolved – so as apps. And regardless of what uses these apps provide, most of them need our mobile data to run efficiently.

2 Best Ways to Extend your Data Plan 17

Mobile networks are aware of these, and the cost data is obviously getting less expensive than it was. Thankfully, no matter what part of the world you’re in, there’s always a data plan for everyone.

But still, there is still a way to get the most out of your data plan without unnecessary usage that you might not even be aware of.

Now forget what similar articles you might have seen before, if you follow these two simple tips, you’ll definitely notice change in your data exhaustion rate.

1 • Turn off Apps Background Data

As simple as this may seem, a lot of individuals don’t even know this. Turning off background data for some certain apps can save you a lot of money not just data only.

Reason is, some apps use your data even if you don’t have them open. It all happens in the background.

Here’s how to turn off apps background data.

2 Best Ways to Extend your Data Plan 18
First, go to Settings, then to Apps

Click whichever app you don’t need background data

Below the app details, click data usage

Click on the toggle beside the background data

And Voila!

You can do these for as many apps you wish not to use your data unnecessarily in the background.

2 • Install Datally

Datally is another app from Google with the initiative of conserving more data for its Android users. The app is lightweight, its latest version is just little above 5MB.

Adding to this, it comes with a bunch of useful features like data saver that allows you to block data background usage or unwanted notifications from apps with ease, and also a detailed statistics of your data usage.

My favorite feature is the Bubble that gives real-time data usage of the app you’re using at that moment

One tip though (more like an advice), if you’re at any point managing data stay far from YouTube. But if you still have the itch to watch youtube video, go for the lite version of the app, YouTube Go. Because I heard some people only get their senses back with the “your data is remaining 100MB” message. 🙄

Okay that will be all for now. If you have any questions, I will be more than happy to assist.

Thanks for reading, hopefully I’ll see you in the next post.

But the question is this –

Is the 9mobile free whatsapp offer totally free?

Well the answer to that is No, it’s not. You would need to have another active data bundle before you can use the free whatsapp which means your data would be subtracted for every other thing you do apart from whatsapp usage.
