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.
