“Besides its affordability, the data bundle can be purchased while in Nigeria and its validity starts when the subscriber lands in the Holy land”, Glo added.

According to the grandmasters of data, “Subscribers are also in control of their usage and there are no fears of additional billing as they only use from the bundle they purchase.
