To enjoy lower rate call charges, bonuses, and good data tariffs offered by Glo Yakata, simply dial *230# with your Glo number to migrate to the tariff plan.
Glo Yakata is a prepaid tariff plan that provides various beneficial services. Glo data subscribers have continued to prefer the tariff package throughout the years. This is because the tariff plan offers a very low call rate and numerous call and data bonuses.
It will interest you to note that Glo Yakata was introduced in 2018 by the telecommunications company as a tool for marketing. The plan lasted just a year before they reorganized it to develop the current New Glo Yakata tariff plan.
The former Glo Yakata was aimed at promoting data plans. But the current version promotes both the voice and data services. As we progress, we’ll look at the difference between the two versions, how to migrate to this tariff plan and all the conditions for doing so.
Glo Yakata Code for Migration

Requirements for Migrating to the Glo Yakata Tariff Plan
Customers can easily transition to the plan because it is one of the telecom network’s major offerings. At its most basic, all you need is an active Glo SIM. If you want to take advantage of the plan by reactivating an old SIM, simply recharge the line before migrating.
Customers who purchase a new SIM card will need to complete documentation requirements at the point of sale to become Glo Yakata customers. This will necessitate personal information such as the following:
- Means of Identification (NIN, Voters’ Card, Driver’s License)
- Personal information

Difference Between Old Glo Yakata Plan and Glo New Yakata
Most users fail to understand that there are two different Glo Yakata tariff plans. To show the features of the current Yakata tariff plan, we will outline the significant difference between the two versions. Note that the communication network has scrapped the previous Glo Yakata. Some of the differences are stated below:
SMS Allocated to the Bonus Account
For the old Glo Yakata, the user gets only a 14 SMS bonus, while the Glo New Yakata offers up to a 20 SMS bonus to all local networks.
Call Rate on Glo to Glo
The old Glo Yakata tariff plan had a cheaper call rate on Glo to Glo. The rate was 55k/sec for the old Glo Yakata tariff plan. Currently, the Glo New Yakata charges 70k/sec for all Glo to Glo calls.
Social Data Benefit
The old Glo Yakata tariff plan didn’t provide a data bonus for social data. The new Glo Yakata tariff plan includes provisions for data bonuses that will benefit social media users.
Free 6GB For the First Six Months
The old Glo Yakata didn’t offer new Glo Yakata SIM users a 6GB free data plan for the first six months of using the number. It was introduced by the New Glo Yakata tariff plan.
How to Check Glo Yakata’s Airtime Balance
It is important to check your Glo Yakata airtime balance regularly to keep track of certain information and to keep track how you are using your airtime and bonus. The code for checking your Glo Yakata account balance is the same as the code for accessing your Glo airtime balance.
The code #124*1# allows you to obtain general information about your account balance, including those on the Glo Yakata tariff plan. The following are the steps to check your airtime balance on the Glo Yakata:
- Dial #124*1# using your Glo numbers

How to Check Glo Yakata Data Plan
Checking data plans is one of the important ways of managing your data usage. The Glo Yakata tariff plan data subscription offers subscribers data that is way above the value subscribed. There are three different ways of checking your Glo Yakata data plan, and they include:
- Use of Glo USSD Code
- Glo Self-Care Portal
- A Customer Service Representative
How to Check Glo Data Plan Using the USSD Code
On Glo Yakata data plans, there is no one-of-a-kind means to check the data account balance. Because it is a standard option on the Glo tariff list, you can check it by dialing the same USSD code as you would for other tariff options. The codes *220*1# and *777# can be used to access data plans in Glo Yakata.
*220*1# is more for general balance checks. It displays all of your sim’s balances, including airtime balance, airtime bonus, SMS bonus, and data balance. Simply dial the code to find out the status of your Glo Yakata sim.
*777# is a data-focused shortcode that answers the question in its most specific form. Simply dial the code and then follow these steps:
- Click One to select ‘Buy Data’ from the sub-menu
- Click four to select ‘Manage Plan’ from the option
- Click four to select ‘Data Balance’ from the option
Then you will receive all your balances in Glo Yakata, including the data balance.
