How to Use Glo LTE Network on Your Phone.

Glo deployed their 4G service on FDD band 28 (700mhz), so you must first confirm the new 4G network from Glo is compatible with your phone by sending 4G to 400 as a text message.

Go to the nearest Glo office and swap your Sim for 4G Sim or buy a new 4G sim card and register or activate it.

To use GloNg 4G network on your PC, you need a Glo NG 4G router or any Universal MiFi, because it won’t work on normal modems. You can also connect via hotspot from a smart phone compatible with their 4G network.

As we are patiently waiting for Etisalat and Airtel to launched their own band of 4G, let’s know what you think of Glo 4G LTE.

      No, 4G sim can’t work on a 3G phone.

  3. idowu

    Mr Author, u are wrong. 4g sims can work on a 3g phones. The 3g signal will work on ur 3g phone, but the 4g signal won’t.

    1. Naij Naira

      Have you tried it before? and not just your opinion. I subscribed on my 4G SIM when it was launched and it refuse to work on my 3G phones. So please only say what works for you and not what you think. Thanks for taking your time to comment, really appreciate it.

    I just swapped my 3g sim to 4g,before it was showing H+ or E, after d swapped to 4 g it’s still showing H+ what’s the issue? I use a 4g phone.

  9. Mohammad

    I wanted to change my own to 4G but it refused help.

  10. jay

    I bought glo 4G LTE and my phone is 4G recommended but still it shows H+

    1. blessing

      Same here, how can this be rectified

      1. ADONIS

        What phone do you use? Just cos your phone is a 4G one doesn’t mean it would work on a Glo 4G sim except on this two scenarios:
        1. You have a 4G phone that has the Glo 4G band(band 28 which is very rare)
        2. You have a 4G phone and you are located in a city or town with the latest Glo 4G band of 3 and your 4G phone supports that band too.

        And the easiest option is usually to buy a universal mifi that supports the Glo 4G band 28.

    I have a Glo 3G sim and I don’t want to change the sim, how much would it cost for it to be upgraded to 4G sim?
