On our How To Use MTN BIS on PC page, some of this blog readers contacted me online via this blog Contact Form, requesting for how they can also use Glo BIS on PC. So today, I want to share a simple tutorial on how I was able to use my Glo BIS on my BlackBerry and at the same time use it on my PC.
Nigerian ISP data plans specially made for PC’s are just too expensive to use, but in the case of BlackBerry Internet Service plan, they are relatively cheaper than the normal data plans. So Nigerians have been devising various means to use BIS meant for BlackBerry devices on PC, since BlackBerry is commonly used among Nigerians and the subscription price is relatively cheaper than normal data plans.
In the past, MTN and Airtel BIS are the only one working on PC, but now, Glo BIS too is now working, though Glo BIS data bundle is limited unlike MTN BIS that has unlimited data bundle, but it is better than Airtel BIS. Glo weekly data plan bundle gives you 700MB while Glo monthly data plan bundle gives you 3GB.
Steps to Start Using Glo BIS on PC
Insert the Glo sim with BIS into your Modem. But in case you are using another service provider modem and you are yet to unlock it, go to Modem Unlocker Software page to get the unlocking software to unlock it yourself.
