Glo Mobile has announced its readiness to launch the latest telecommunication technology, the 3G network, following the successful test-run of the platform on the Glo network by Alcatel.
Globacoms Chief Operating Officer (COO), Mohamed Jameel, announced at a press conference held at the companys Head Office in Lagos that 3G has been successfully tested on our network by Alcatel. We are now ready for the commercial launch once we get the clearance from NCC (Nigerian Communication Commission).

    Hello,
    I am Mohammed Ahmed Khan, Electronic Engineer, from Pakistan, with the technical work experience of 15years. Recently I was working as Project Manager and System Design Engineer in a company “Data Communication & Control Pvt. (Ltd.)” in Karachi Pakistan.

    I am here in Kano Nigeria to visit my family. while I am on visit I am also looking for a better job opportunity. The nature of work I am doing there with the company is very much diversified and project oriented. Projects are use to be indigenous development of customized system.

    The nature of every project I do is use to be totally different from the last project, I have to do research and study to have the domain knowledge before I can start any new project and successfully deliver it as project manager or team leader. I believe I can apply this approach if I have been given a chance to enter into industry especially in Telecom.

    I am here justifying about my technical background because you might find lake of focus in my experience mentioned in my formal CV. which you can find in attachment
    You can find pictures and reports I wrote about some of my projects on the following URL to have good idea of my work and expertise.

    my people dont believe everything they say.in other countries,uk,S.Africa etc.can u believe that u can watch live uefa cup matches,cnn,movie channels on their 3G phones,but in nigeria,its always stories.we have to see to believe.we are tired of stories.any network that releases it will gain 80% of lagosians.they will prefer to watch championship soccer on a 3G phone.
