Glo Ghana commences launch activities with ‘Number Reservation Campaign’

Category: ICT 439 175

Glo Mobile Ghana Limited today launched a number reservation campaign to kick-start activities marking the launch of its commercial services in Ghana.

The campaign dubbed ‘Reserve Your Number’ gives one million minus one (999,999) Ghanaians the chance to reserve their special 023-3 numbers on the Glo Mobile Network by texting their preferred number to the Glo SMS code 0230010100.

Chief Operating Officer of Glo Ghana Mobile Ghana, George Andah told journalists in Accra that the ‘Reserve Your Number Campaign’ marks the first of series of launch activities earmarked for the entry of the Glo Network into the Ghanaian telecoms market.

Mr. Andah urged Ghanaians to take advantage of the excitement and benefits of the number reservation exercise, and join the Glo network which promised superior quality and value offerings at competitive rates.

He said the reservation was free, apart from the normal SMS cost and it would be on first-request-first-served basis.

“In accordance with National Communications Authority (NCA) guidelines on Number Registration, no single individual subscriber shall be permitted to reserve more than five (5) Glo Mobile numbers and the numbers will be activated upon the commencement of commercial operation,”

The Glo COO said people will start experiencing the Glo Mobile Ghana network from today because the number reservation campaign is going to run on the Glo mobile sms platform, adding that the full experience of all the bouquet of exciting services on the network will start once the reserve your number campaign reaches the desired threshold.

Mr. Andah pledged that Glo Mobile Ghana would be the champion of values in their products, pricing and service delivery, saying “that is the social contract we wish to sign with you from today”.

Mr. Andah said to date, Glo had invested over $750 million into deploying and installing the latest broadband technology, Next Generation Networks, over 1,600 state-of-the-art Base Transceiver Stations (BTS), four ultra modern Switches with capacity for up to 10 million lines with congestion-free service, 18 Base Switching Centres (BSC), 800 3G Node Bs, an ultra-modern Call Centre and 25 GloWorld outlets.

Glo is the sixth operator to enter Ghana’s dynamic and challenging telecom market, which watchers and players have not made a secret of the opinion that it is ready to receive a sixth operator.

Glo comes at a time when the market is almost saturated at more than 80% penetration; with the five existing operators commanding more than 21 million subscriptions in a population of 24 million.

Some telecom CEO have said Glo does not have many options in the voice market, and could only survive on the back of data services, but George Andah has said the speed with which Ghanaians are reserving their numbers shows Ghanaians are ready for Glo and that presented great opportunities for growth.

I just mention 1% of what Glo networt will give us. I even take upon myself to lure all my friends and their friends my family into the glo family. Glo we are ready for you. Wether there is 21 000 000 subscriptions out of the population of 24 000 000 on the already existing networks or not, we are more than ever ready to switch to Glo. Glo go, Ghana go, the sky is your limit. God bless Ghana and God bless Glo.

    Very great that glo is now to operation right with us in gh. WELCOME! but how can i get my reserve number?

  52. kEKELI

    Each SMS COST 40 PESEWAS THATS CRAZY AND THE MOST ANNOYING PART IS THAT YOU SEND IT AND THE NUMBER IS ALREADY RESERVED.. I JUST WASTED 3 CEDIS THATS ABOUT 50MINUTES TALKTIME……CRAZY THE SMS COST FOR RESERVING A NUMBER IS TOO MUCH IF THATS WHAT THEY ARE COMING TO DO THEN WE STICK TO OUR OLD NETWORKS..

  53. Win

    @Kekeli point of correction its actually varies from network to network so i guess ur network sms charges is awefully high. by the way which network is that?

    Always remember that the TELCOS play together at the backend but customers keep thinking that they are different entities. I hope GLO doesn’t feel complacent over the years to come.

  62. Tetteh Mcjoy S.

    Wel how soon are u guys going to fully operate? U need a very great marketing tatics to really outwit other network. Can we know when exactly to start buy’g de sim card? I mean de exact date?

    GREAT WORLAS

  64. OWUSU WILLIAM -KOOOOOO.....

    now that glo is about operating in ghana. we expect lower call rates. 5p or less to other networks and 3p or less to glo networks. any thing more
    than this will put glo off.

  65. Collins

    @Kekeli, it’s your network that is charging you that and not glo. moreover, if you want to reserve a very special number, then be prepared to waste that. also dont forget that somebody went ahead of you to reserve those numbers. you were late

  66. MICHAEL

    hmmm how can l do this reservation thing.l have been trying but still l get get anything.the only thing that l will have on my phone is failure.am l not doing it well?well this is how l do it. 0233 plus the number l want then send it to.02330010100.lol l guess that is the right way.by the way can it be done on the internet.thanxz
