Fixed Lines

Our SNO license entitles us to provide a fixed line network in Nigeria. Operating under the name Glo Broad Access, we plan to revolutionize the country’s underdeveloped fixed telephony.

From integrated telephone services for corporate organisations and small business enterprises to user friendly plans for homes, Broad Access brings innovative, cost-effective solutions to cater to our customers’ needs. In the initial launch phase, fixed line services would be available in 13 major cities in Nigeria with a capacity of 300,000 lines. Towards achieving this and the larger project of networking Nigeria, state of the art equipment and a 10,000 km long distance optical fibre backbone and city network are being deployed. The OFC Network of Glo broad access has a distinction of being the largest OFC Network, not just in Nigeria, but in Africa. In keeping with the international trend as indeed in Nigeria, which is the changing complexities of Telecoms traffic and requiring enormous bandwidth; Glo has deployed the most current Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) technology to build its OFC Network. DWDM is both Data and Voice Centric technology. DWDM equips the OFC Network of Glo with the competitive advantages of:

  • Capacity— for enormous volumes of voice, Data and video.
  • Congestion-free traffic with each channel having dedicated bandwidth.
  • Fast and flexible provisioning of protocol transparent services.
  • Scalability with potentially unlimited transmission capacities. It offers optimization potential by a factor of 64kbps.
  • Economy and affordability leading to overall economic development of the nation.
