Nigerians have voted for Globacom Nigeria Limited, a telecommunications company owned by billionaire Mike Adenuga, as the worst network provider of the decade
The management of the company, despite rolling out numerous creative adverts has failed to meet the basic expectations of millions of Nigerians as they keep failing the people both in making phone calls and browsing the Internet.
Nigerians had continued to back and purchase the network as they are still full of hopes that being an indigenous company, the telecommunication would do better.
According to lagosdaily, a poll carried out on social media (Facebook and Twitter) had Glo top the chart as Nigerians expressed their disgusts and dislike for the network provider.
The twitter poll conducted by Pope Piano @Yeankhar saw Globacom polled 69 per cent to win the infamous award as MTN came a distant second with 12.5 per cent, with 9mobile and Airtel polling 9.3 per cent and 9.1 per cent respectively out of the 2895 total votes.
Twitter users commenting on the poll corroborated why Nigerians voted for Glo as the worst network provider of the decade.
Some of the comments saw users of the network provider lamented what using the service has cost them.
Also, a visit to the various social media platforms of the network provider in the past week shows that Nigerians daily complain about the quality of its porous network.
Nigerians who subscribed to other network providers questioned the reason people continue to use the service of Glo despite their ‘not so good services as some insinuated that even Mike Adenuga doesn’t use the service.
Laide Of Jos @JosLaide said, “Undisputed Globacom with the worst network…even with there mast in front of my house I can’t still enjoy good network!”
Omogbolahan @Zeem_Miles said, “I’m 100 per cent sure Glo will win this.”
Good Fellow @Friskyrobson replied “Yesterday morning, I paid my transport, went to @GloWorld office to report that their network mast has been off for more than a week now. Up till now, nothing has been done. Worst of all, I met with the oga abi branch manager”
Ebullient Emekah @Megxo_official tweeted: “It has to be Glo… Their 4G still chooses 4g- enabled device to work on, might work for mine but won’t work for yours. Talking about bandwidth and shii.”
Another Twitter user, @1RndomAfrican in his reply to Emekah said, “I dey tell u, I got a Glo sim on the 29th of last month, only thing I regret doing last year, soon as d idiot data finish, I’ll call customer care, ask them why they don’t talk sense to their boss and break d sim. How 4g sim no go update status for 34mins Until I changed it to 3g”.
Still responding to the poll, @1RndomAfrican said further “Adenuga failed all of us, I’m sure mans (Adenuga) doesn’t use his stupid network.”
@AamirSidibe was forced to ask a very salient question – “Is there any Glo subscriber that doesn’t have an MTN line. Why is Globacom always a second option?”
@Clesteve tweeted, “Globacom is a fraud. Your data is a fraud. And your company is a fraud. How can I buy data and it won’t download any damn thing.”
@MrOdanz asked, “If Glo spends just half their advertisement budget on building infrastructure for better network services, a whole lot of MTN users would have moved to Glo since.”
Nigerian Critic @ngcritic on Jan 3 advised, “Rather than improve their services, especially mobile data quality, the “Grandmaster of Data” is busy acting Nollywood season film.”
On Facebook, Ngwu Lemzy Sage, reacting to a post by Globacom on the preference between plantain chips and potato chips, said, “Neither of the two. Just give me good network, Mbok. Your network (data) sucks big time, do something about it. Am in Enugu.
He is just one of the millions of Nigerians who have made the handles of the network provider a place for venting their annoyance at the poor services they receive.
Mary Favour, a regular visitor to the handle, posted, “Your network is not going at all, please do the needful.”
For Acheneje D’ philosopher, “the question on food was a misplaced priority,” while Oyewola Emmanuel Adewale urged the service provider to find a lasting solution to its bad service.
Adewale wrote, “Instead of finding solution to this bad service, you come here posting rubbish.
A visit to the office of Globacom at 95 Allen Ave, Allen, Ikeja is the same as most of the complains are about the lousy network.-lagosdaily
