How to use MTN Night Plan During the day


MTN night plan is one of the cheapest data plan suitable for bloggers in Nigeria due to high cost of that plan it cost N 2,500 for 3GB (9pm to 6am) and a bonus of 1.5GB which you can use during the day and in the night, and after you have exhausted the bonus data you have to wait till 9pm before you start using your initial data (the one you paid for) or you can keep your data on before 6am and you are not going to turn it off  if you want to continue using it.

What if you have some important stuff you want to tidy? Well for me if I have money with me I just top it up so I will get another bonus to use during the day for like 2 days or so. That is why my tablet measures up to 10GB+ of data used monthly 😀 but just few days ago I discovered how one can use the night plan anytime he or she wants, Thanks to my Facebook friend.

Note: A wifi hotspot enabled device and a Windows laptop with wireless connectivity is need for this tutorial.
