After the long wait, thousands of Ghanaians have been trooping to the various Glo World shops across the country to activate their reserved lines, port their existing numbers to Glo and purchase new SIM cards.
Glo commenced operations on April 29, half a decade after its first announcement which soon followed with massive sponsorships and advertisements in the country. The company launched its data packages last year but delayed on its voice service.
Three years ago it acquired a telecommunication operation licences in Ghana.
Ahead of the voice service launch, the company embarked on a number reservation campaign, where it recorded over 1.5million special subscriptions of 023-3 and 023-5 numbers.
Subscribers who reserved their numbers received a second confirmation text message on May 1 asking them to pick up their reserved numbers from any Glo World shop or approved channel partner.
When Ghanaian blogger Nii Ogbamey Tetteh visited the Glo World Shop on the Ring Road around 7am on May 2 , enthusiastic subscribers were seen in long queues waiting to be served. The scene was the same at the Madina, East Legon and the head office at Osu among others.
Most of the excited subscribers who were waiting to be served expressed delight about the exciting offers Glo Mobile has to offer like the “good day Ghana package” which will give subscribers free 20Gp worth of credit every day for one hundred days.
