At Globacom we esteem our vision. It is our vision which keeps us moving forward.
Our vision which pushes us to be the best we can. And our vision which propels us
into the future, ahead of our competitors.
We at Globacom aspire to build Africa’s biggest and best telecommunications network.
A vision so grand, it could easily intimidate. And yet, in the last six years we
have taken that vision and we have soared.
And with millions of subscribers in Nigeria and the Republic of Benin, and the recent
acquisition of operating licences in Ghana and Cote d’voire (Ivory Coast), our vision
is fast becoming our reality.
Join Globacom, if you haven’t already, and share in our vision. You won’t be disappointed,
we are committed to providing you with successful communication solutions to suit
your individual needs.
When we launched in Nigeria in 2003, we had the vision to be the market leading
service provider in Nigeria and we also aspire to build Africa’s biggest and best
telecommunications network. With over 25 million subscribers, we have realized the
dream of being Nigeria’s leading service provider. And through extending our coverage
into other African countries like the Republic of Benin, Ghana and the Ivory Coast,
we are well on track to achieving our goal of being the biggest and best telecommunications
network in Africa.
As a company, we at Globacom recently made history as the first single company to
build an $800 million high-capacity fibre-optic cable, known as Glo-1. It is the
first successful submarine cable from the United Kingdom to Nigeria; and it will
decrease telecom process and provide excess bandwidth to all the cities connected
to the cable. This historical initiative will also improve teleconferencing, distance
learning, disaster recovery and telemedicine among several other benefits. As part
of giving back to the communities in which we operate, Globacom Limited sponsors
the national football teams and the Premier Leagues in Nigeria and Ghana. In 2010,
Globacom sponsored the African Handball tournament in Benin Republic as well as
the biggest cultural festival (FITHEB) held in the Benin Republic. Globacom has
also sponsored the annual Confederation of African Football (CAF) Awards since 2005.
We are also the sponsor of the Glo Lagos International Half Marathon.
