Globacom Nigeria has just shot down the price of BlackBerry Internet Service in Nigeria by releasing a new package which reduces the monthly BIS access fee to an affordable N1,400 ONLY.
Yep! You heard it right. Glo BlackBerry Internet Service is
now N1,400 and for this price you get the following :
1. BlackBerry Messenger
2. BlackBerry Mail example
3. BB-Built Social Networking & IM Apps: Twitter,
Facebook, MySpace, Windows Messenger, GTalk,
Yahoo Messenger etc.
4. 24/7 Internet Browsing
5. BlackBerry App World Access
6. 1 integrated personal email address of your choice like
Yahoo, Gmail, AOL etc.
7. 3GB of monthly data allowance.
As you may have noticed, unlike the previous Glo
BlackBerry Internet Service plan, you can only have access
to ONE personal email account so for those of you, who
own businesses and manage different email accounts, you
are better off sticking with the old BISMONTH plans which
by the way have also been increased to 3GB .

GLO BLACKBERRY INTERNET PLAN SUBSCRIPTION CODES
To subscribe to any of the Glo Complete BlackBerry Plans
below, simply text the Keyword of your choice to 777.
Example if you want to subscribe to the Glo BlackBerry
Complete Month, you text CoMonth To 777.
CAUTION: If you were previously on BISMONTH and
would like to migrate to COMONTH, you are highly
advised to send CANCEL to 777 first. You should get a
confirmation message that reads ” Your automatic
renewal has been cancelled“. Now you can send
COMONTH to 777 to subscribe for Glo BlackBerry
Failure to do the above might lead to your credit being
automatically deducted and converted to BISMONTH.

As at the time of going to press CoMonth offers 3GB,
CoWeek offers 700MB and CoDay offers 100MB.
After subscribing to COMONTH, you are advised to re-
configure your email addresses again as if you have more
than two, none of them will work until you delete one and
reset the other.
For those of you who don’t need access to your personal
email on your BlackBerry Device, you can get the new Glo
BlackBerry Social Plans which offer access to everything
except Personal Email.
NOTE: Previously Internet Browsing was NOT included
in Social plans but seems like it has been added now.

These drastic price reductions leaves me wondering if the
GLO network is strong enough to handle the tons of people
that will possibly migrate from other network to theirs. 3GB
a month for just N1,200/N1,400 is a lot but I’m guessing
that they are banking on the fact that most BlackBerry users
don’t really download large files on their blackberry
RIM might just have found a potential market in Nigeria for
their BlackBerry smartphones .
If you want to make good use of your 3GB of monthly
allowance like I do, I highly recommended you get a
BlackBerry device with OS 6 or upgrade your BlackBerry 5
to BlackBerry OS 6 and then install UC Browser and
Download Manager For BlackBerry Phones.
If you find it difficult to upgrade to OS 6, you can also
check out these functional download managers for
BlackBerry Smartphones as well as PodTrapper Podcast
