Globacom Nigeria customers with bank accounts can now recharge airtime on their mobile phones.
The Second National Operator (SNO) says that the new service will let its mobile phone subscriber buy airtime using the unified USSD short code *805#.
Subscribers who have accounts with any of the partnering banks will have the opportunity to top up their airtime with money from their bank accounts at any time of the day, whether locally or while roaming, Globacom says.
“The unified short code is designed to make life easier for our esteemed subscribers as it is simple and easy to remember”, the phone company says of the service offered by partnering banks that include First Bank, Ecobank, Zenith Bank, Access Bank, UBA, Union Bank, Stanbic IBTC Bank, Sterling Bank and IBTC Bank.

Globacom says that its subscribers can register their Glo lines with any of the partnering banks to get free facility.
The process of registering Glo lines with the banks is easy, Globacom says explaining that subscribers intending to use the service need to have their phone provisioned by the bank for airtime quick recharge service.
This can be done by dialling *805# and thereafter following the prompt by selecting preferred bank and the amount of airtime for immediate processing, according to Globacom.
