How To Use GLO BlackBerry Plan(BIS) On PC

Lately GLO has improved their internet service by allowing its users to use their BlackBerry internet subscription(BIS) on PC computer and this has been what  i have been using for a couple of days without stress and the speed as the good here in my present location.

The Good news is that, same Glo bis can be used on smartphones like ipad and other devices, whether or not the plan can be used on an android device is something i really can’t ascertain because i haven’t tried it out before using an Android Smart Phone but you can try it out yourself and give me a feed back.

Blaze on.

Summary: This is a very good  option to the Airtel BIS been used on PC and a good option for people speeding high amounts on internet subscriptions as you are given 700MB for the weekly plan and 3GB for the monthly plan which  i’d say is very cheap compared to the price.

If you are the type that consume more than 3GB in a month, then i’d recommend getting my unlimited browsing package and surf unlimited for a month.

        • If i understand you clearly, you are still using gloflat as the APN in your configuration settings, if you follow the instructions squarely, i said use ‘blackberry.net’ as the APN, follow the screenshot settings in the post above and if you have an active bb subscription, you should be good to go.

  6. Hi. Pls can you give me instructions on how to connect my glo BIS to pc using USB cable? I’d be very grateful bro. Tnx

    • I’d recommend you use a modem but if you still want to use a mobile phone alongside a usb cable, then you should have the phone’s pc suite, its usb cable and the phone should be 3G enabled but better browsing.

  7. Bro I’v all those. The desktop manager and it’s a bb torch. Pls can you give me the steps to follow, like what and what to set on my phone and pc(control panel, network connections,etc) if applicable. Thank you

    • Hello Ameer, am pretty sure using glo bis on iphone should work although I don’t use an iphone, just go to your internet settings and use APN as blackberry.net and don’t forget leaving the username and password fields empty then connect. Do let us know how it goes.

  18. Hello, i didn’t have any stress using my glo bolt modem to connect with the bb glo plan on my pc, but the problem i encounter is that when watching video online, it is fucking slow and it breaks very well. some times it even loggs off itself. what can you advice pls?
