Glo 3GB for N1400 is quite displeasing in recent times, now should be the perfect time to abandon your Glo sim card. After all, it’s N1400 while this is only N1000 with the same data size and no data zapping case experienced from my side.

What do you think about this latest development from Airtel, does it overtakes Glo in terms of the cheapest subscription? Have a great day as this info is coming right on our Anniversary day!
