 Globacom has announced the launch of ALWAYS ON, a new pre-paid tariff that allows subscribers keep their phone numbers for one full year even if they do not use the lines during the period.

According to the company’s announcement through a press statement released on Thurs­day in Lagos, with a token pay­ment of just N500, “our custom­ers can now enjoy 365 days of uninterrupted service, even if the customer does not make or receive calls, text or browse.

“Glo customers no longer need to worry about their lines getting suspended or disconnected even if they have not made calls, used data or SMS. ALWAYS ON is available to all existing and new prepaid subscribers and is especially beneficial to cus­tomers who travel out of the country for long durations without access to the network or customers whose handsets get stolen or damaged but do not have immediate means of replacement. They can now be rest assured that their lines will not be disconnected due to inactivity,” the statement further said.

It said customers can sub­scribe to the plan by simply dialing *777# and selecting ALWAYS ON from the menu, adding that a one-time fee of N500 would subsequently be deducted from the customer’s main account upon which the 365 days uninterrupted access would be placed on the line.
