The various mobile networks in Nigeria(MTN,Glo,Airtel and 9mobile) have different night data bundle plans which are quite relatively cheap compared with the regular data bundle plans from the various mobile networks.
The night bundle plans are so cheap you can get up to 500MB for #25. That sounds good right? But then, staying awake at night to browse, of course, have to be when you sacrifice sleep. You sure get and enjoy cheap data to make up for lost sleep hours.
The good thing about night bundle plans is when you subscribe to any of it and have an existing data bundle plan,it puts the active day data bundle plan on pause for the valid night hours or till you exhaust the night bundle plan. Keep those huge files,music and video streaming till night hours when you can have enough data bundle plan at a fair price to download and stream.
