Airtel Night Plan Limit
The Airtel night plan is a promotional offer that allows users to enjoy discounted data rates during the night hours. While the specifics of the night plan may vary over time, it typically offers unlimited data usage during the specified night hours. This means that you can subscribe more than once during this time.
However, it’s important to note that the term “unlimited” may have some restrictions or fair usage policies. You can subscribe to the Airtel night plan only 5 times in one night. This is done to ensure that network resources are distributed fairly among all users. The duration for this plan is for one night, 12 am to 5 am, or otherwise stated.
Differences Between Airtel Night Plan and Night Sub
Airtel Night Plan and Night Sub are both plans offered by Airtel Nigeria that provide discounted data rates for usage during the night. However, there are some differences between the two:
- Data allowance: The Airtel Night Plan typically offers a set amount of data for usage during the night, usually ranging from 250MB to 1.5GB, depending on the plan you choose. On the other hand, the Night Sub allows you to use your regular data plan at a reduced rate during the night.
- Timing: The Airtel Night Plan usually has a specific time window during which the discounted data rate is applicable, typically between 12 a.m. and 5 a.m. The Night Sub, on the other hand, allows you to use your regular data plan at the discounted rate from 12 a.m. to 5 a.m. or 1 a.m. to 7 a.m., depending on the plan you have subscribed to.
- Price: The Airtel Night Plan has specific subscription prices for each plan, which can range from N25 to N200, depending on the data allowance. The Night Sub, however, does not require a separate subscription and only requires you to have an active data plan that can be used at a discounted rate during the night.
- Validity: The Airtel Night Plan typically has a shorter validity period compared to the regular data plans, usually ranging from 1 day to 5 days, depending on the plan you choose. The Night Sub retains the validity period of your regular data plan.
- Usage: The Airtel Night Plan is specifically designed for heavy data users who want to download or stream content during the night at a cheaper rate. The Night Sub allows all Airtel subscribers with an active data plan to enjoy discounted data rates during the night without additional charges.
In summary, the Airtel Night Plan offers a set amount of data at a discounted rate during specific hours of the night, while the Night Sub allows all Airtel subscribers with an active data plan to enjoy discounted data rates during the night using their regular data plan.
