The feat, Globacom said, underscored its status as the network with the widest LTE coverage in the country as no other operator has such an extensive coverage of the service.
The 700MHz band gives Glo 4G better coverage and penetration, Globacom explained. “The radio propagation property of the 700MHz band enables Globacom 4G signal to travel the farthest, giving the largest coverage for any site. In effect, any city where Glo LTE is present, it covers the widest area than any other network,” the company said in a statement.
“It also gives a better indoor penetration than other networks which are not on the band. Indeed, it offers seamless 4G coverage within the major cities without the requirement of handing over to 3G or 2G while using data, whether the subscriber is indoor or outdoor. This ensures a better user experience for 4G subscribers on the Glo network”, it further said.
