2016 Update : Price of Glo modem is either N4,000 and N6,000 depending on speed. The Glo wifi wiggle modem costs N9,000.
Glo Mobile Nigeria has revamped and rechristened the Glo HSI service to "Glo Bolt", in an effort to make it become the most exciting internet service offering. Following the launch of this revamped Glo High Speed Internet service, new Glo Bolt Modems are to replace the Glo NetPro modems.
The Glo Bolt modem is a 3G modem that comes with a FREE Glo SIM + 500MB of data. Everytime you subscribe to a plan of N1,000 and above monthly, with the new modem, you will get FREE 200MB extra every month for 6 months. Fantastic..huh?

One great feature of Glo Bolt internet service is the Self-Care Portal available at http://hsi.glo.com. At the portal, glo subscribers can view list of all subscription plans as well as view their subscription status, enable/cancel auto renewal of their subscriptions and buy/activate glo data plans.
So, What is New?Glo BOLT comes with sharing, gifting, data bonus and data rollover.
Sharing and Gifting:
Now on Glo BOLT, customers can share subscription plans as well as buy a subscription and send it to friends, family and loved ones as ‘gifts’. A customer with wife and 2 kids can now buy only one plan and share it with his 3 loved ones instead of buying 4 separate subscriptions (sharing). If he doesn't want to share his subscription with them, he can now buy subscriptions and send to them as ‘gifts’ instead of sending them money for subscription(Gifting).

Now, Glo Bolt customers would not loose their unused data from the subscribed plan. Just re-subscribe your data plan before it expires and use the balance data in the next month.
