Night Data Plans are indeed a life saver. I still am yet to get the rationale behind these night data plans. I've asked a couple of people what they think about the Night Data plans these network providers have, and the answers I've gotten were different.
Some said these networks providers know that people won't be waking up every night to use it and that is why they make it cheaper. Some others said these networks providers usually have fewer people browsing during the night. Thus giving them the opportunity to sell data plans far cheaper than they would during the day.
I also got so many other answers but the latter kinda seems more realistic and the fact that browsing and downloading is always faster at night. Whichever might be the case, I for one am Grateful for these plan as it has helped me keep up with my numerous Series, movies and games Downloads.
Some people might say they can't sacrifice their sleep for browsing. But if you are like me that still stay up late at night regardless of if you subscribe to the night data plans or not. Then you would really find these night data plans very useful, especially when it comes it downloading.

I've used and still using MTN's and GLO's night data and I comfortably say that they are both very good.
