How To Buy MB From Glo

If you want to access the internet with your PC or mobile device via the Glo network, then you will have to subscribe to a glo data plan. The data volume (MB) you will get depends on the plan you subscribe to.  There are different ways you can buy MB from Glo and that's what I'm sharing with you in this post.

1. Buy Glo Data Plan via Glo HSI Portal

You can buy glo MB at Glo HSI Portal at hsi.glo.com.

I use this portal alot especially whenever I want to subscribe to glo data plan on my iPad. If you've recharged your glo line, you can access the Glo HSI page on your device to buy your desired plan. Just click on the "BUY" icon next to the plan you want to purchase and you are good to go.

The Glo HSI portal works on other mobile devices and also on computer if you connect with a modem with a Glo line in it. You can also gift and share glo data plans at the HSI Portal.

2. Buy Glo Data Plan Via SMS

Each glo data plan has a string you can text to 127 with your glo line, for you to be subscribed to the plan. For example, to subscribe to Glo Always Micro Plan (N1000 for 30days) via SMS, you will have to text 53 to 127 with your glo line.

3. Buy Glo Data Plan via USSD

Instead of sending text messages to 127 to buy a glo data plan, you can as well dial a string to get hooked up to the glo data bundle of your choice. For example, to subscribe to Glo Always Micro Plan (N1000 for 30days) via USSD, you will have to dial *127*53#.

That's all.

Kindly note that you must have enough airtime in your Glo line main account balance, if not you won't be able to buy MB from Glo.

Have fun!
