  1. Mtn team
    I have got a couple of accounts that I connected as data share beneficiaries and I told them only to use the night express data not the anytime data, but to my surprise they tell me they are unable to connect at night during the ie during the stipulated duration of 00:00 to 05:00.Is it possible that the night express data is not applicable to data share, or I need to do certain settings to make it possible. Reply to my email and thanks in advance

    1. Hi. We reached out to MTN and the following is what they told us; “Hi there Network Busy, thank you for reaching out to us. Please note that when you have a number enabled for data share, all types of data will be available to the number including night data. All that needs to be done is to add the recipients’ numbers on their datashare profile in order to enable the recipients to have access to the data share. This can be done on the MTN app under more options on the below tabs to access the datashare profile.”
