He expressed delight particularly with the extension of the service to the United States, considering its strategic importance as well as the heavy traffic of Nigerians to the country. â€œIt is an exciting experience as we have very affordable and special prepaid roaming rates in the US for Voice and SMS. Glo Top-Up vouchers are also available in retail outlets across the US, thereby making it easy and convenient for subscribers to recharge while in that countryâ€ the COO added.
