For instance, once you exhaust your airtel night subscription plan 1.5GB for N50, you can resubscribe to get another 1.5GB as many times as possible. That’s equal to 3GB for N100 or 6GB for N200 and so on in just one night. We can therefore confidently call this Airtel unlimited night plan.
Unlimited airtel night data plan was one of the best things we have enjoyed from Airtel Nigeria over the years, the bad news is that it has been discontinued or rather replaced by another night data plan which is still very cheap and cool compared to the night plans from other networks like that of 500Mb for 25 naira from MTN.
The former Airtel hourly based Night plan used to be one of the best data plans enjoyed by many especially for unlimited download
Many people abandoned the Airtel high-priced night data bundle and switched over to MTN cheap Night package since MTN introduced the night plan of 500MB for just N25.
Night Plan Validity Period
- You can only use the data bundle from 12am to 5am. So you have to burn the night to browse with it.
- You can re-subscribe many time in the same night if you exhaust your data bundle
- The data plan will expire after one day.
In my consideration, Airtel 1.5GB for N50 is better than MTN 500MB for N25 because of your ability to re-subscribe after it’s exhausted. For this reason, you can use upto 3GB data for N100 if you subscribe twice. Some people can compare this to the previous Airtel Night Unlimited browsing.
Airtel night plan works for nights only, and you cannot use it in the daytime. Even that, the midnight plan works from 12:00 AM (Midnight) to 5:00 AM (Morning), and that is about 5 hours.
Please note: unlike other regular Airtel data plans, the Aitel night data plan cannot be rolled over if you cannot exhaust the data bundle before 5.00 AM.
