So you have a huge Glo data and you probably don’t know what to do with it, because of the ridiculously large amount of data allocated by Glo for cheap prices. How about this? Why don’t you try sharing the data with your friends, family or that really special someone in your life. We could have suggested that you should try reselling the data, but because of how cheap Glo data is, people prefer buying it directly than buying from resellers, so that’s out of the question.
