GLO Yakata vs GLO Berekete: Which is better?

This is a question frequently asked by Glo users who want to migrate either from Glo Yakata to Glo Berekete or vice versa, and those who want to switch from other Glo tariff plans to any of Yakata or Berekete tariff plans.


Well, that’s not surprising because switching from one tariff plan to another is something that happens regularly due to the benefits of the new one you want to migrate to. 

Therefore, You’ll want to know the best one for you. However, the availability of lots of tariff plans on the Glo network might get you confused on the one to go for.

Glo YAKATA Tariff Plan is a prepaid plan from Glo to reward its customers with amazing data and voice benefits every time they recharge their Glo lines. The plan allows customers to satisfy their browsing and talking needs from the same recharge.

Glo BEREKETE is the service provider’s newest package added to its tariff plan catalog, and as against generally held sentiments of Glo call packages, this one is of immersive value.


GLO BEREKETE replaces Glo YAKATA as the default tariff plan for new customers. This means that all newly activated SIMs as well as new customers on the current YAKATA plan will be provisioned/migrated on BEREKETE.


Each Tariff has benefits that differentiate it or make it similar to the other.



Old & New customers are eligible to enjoy both tariffs, which means there are no restrictions to migrate to the plans.
