Over 1.8 million people reserve numbers on Glo Ghana network

George Andah - Glo Ghana COO

More than 1.8 million people have so far reserved their preffered or personal numbers on the Glo Network since the company launched the ongoing ‘Reserve Your Number’ campaign.

Chief Operating Officer, George Andah said in Accra on Thursday that over 1.8 million requests had been made by the public since January 19 when the Reserve Your Number campaign was launched.

“Requests for reservations have continued to stream in at the same rate during the past six weeks and as at mid-day on Thursday, we had recorded a total of 1, 890,000 requests.”

“As high as five per cent of the total requests made were in the premium category, which gives us an indication as to the level of excitement generated by the prospect of owning a special Glo number which may be unique to the potential subscriber,’ Mr Andah said.

Barely two weeks after the launch of its 0233 number series as part of activities to usher in Glo’s much anticipated commercial operations, the company opened up a second block of one million numbers comprising the 0235 number series.

Mr Andah said all potential subscribers who made successful requests for reservations and received confirmation codes had their numbers reserved for them by the system and that all numbers so reserved might be retrieved and activated upon successful registration once commercial operations began.

Telecom market observers believe that the surge in requests for number reservation could be traced to signals that Glo, easily the most anticipated network in the country, is preparing to commence commercial operations anytime soon.
