Glo Mobile Ghana finally launched yesterday and today was their first big day.
I got a data modem from Glo this afternoon. It took about an hour to get the modem as I had to wait in line and everybody was buying at least two SIM cards or modem. Glo NetPro a ZTE MF110 USB modem which sells at GH¢60 with 6GB
Setup was easy and fast. Setting up on my MacBook Pro took just a few clicks and a little over a minute.
The first thing I did after the installation was to dive right in with a speed test. With so much talk about the Glo-1 cable, I was curious to find out how fast the NetPro is. The speedtest result was quite impressive with the download but upload disappointed. Only the average, I clocked 3Mbps for download speed and 0.5Mbps for upload speed. It compares to what one can get on MTN and Airtel. I will have to test this over a wide area to come to a better conclusion.
Very little information is out there now on the available data bundle for Glo NetPro. Naa from Glo Customer care was helpful with some of the available packages. The packages have apart from having data limits also have time limits;
