Other than Airtel which tend to offer different data plans which can be considered very affordable, Glo still rocks my boat.
For those who don’t know, glo offers weekend and night data plans. The night plan cost just N200 and offers 1GB of data space while the weekend plan cost N500 and offers 3GB data space.
The night plan can be used from 12:00am to 5:00am (weekdays) while the weekend plan is valid during Saturdays and Sundays. While glo says the plan is valid for 24 hours, that’s not entirely true (I stand to be corrected though).
Here’s How The Glo Night and Weekend Data Plan
The night plan offers 1GB data plan for N200 and if that’s not exhausted within the valid time frame on the first night, it can be used the following night. If not exhausted the following night, it can be used the other following night. I guess that’s what makes the plan exceptional.
Although I haven’t experimented much with the weekend plan, based on my usage so far, it can be used for 2 weekends. That’s if the user does not exhaust the data allocated the first weekend of course.
Extra Tip: If using a blackberry 10 phone, remember to change the APN to gloflat or glosecure during the night or weekend period so you don’t keep getting charged from your normal bis plan.
So, if you’ve got large files to download using the glo network, the night plan or weekend plan could be the best bet.
