Lol - Glo free Data Day Promo Halted by NCC


The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has put an halt to Globacom Nigeria’s plans to offer free data to all its subscribers on Friday, August 11, 2017.

In a letter signed by Sunday Dare, NCC commissioner for stakeholder management, for Umar Danbatta, the executive vice chairman, the commission said the promotion is a clear departure from what was approved by the regulator.

Earlier, Glo had annouced that eligible subscribers will enjoy as much as 200 megabytes of data for free to enjoy what it called the “free data day”.

The regulator also summoned Gladys Talabi, the chief executive officer (CEO) of Globacom Nigeria, to a meeting at the commission’s headquarters in Abuja for August 17, 2017.

“Please refer to the commission’s letter dated 14th March, 2017 conveying approval for your Glo overload promotion. It has however come to our notice that Globacom Nigeria Ltd has been implementing the above regulatory approval in breach especially given your recent media campaign on the ‘Glo free data offer’, a clear departurre from terms and condition of the approval given for the Glo overload promotion,” the letter seen by The Gistpluz read.

“Consequent upon the above, you are hereby directed to suspend implementation of the Glo overload promotion from your network with immediate effect.”
