Night owl is also great for movie and music lovers. Perhaps you are looking to stream your favorite shows. If that’s the case, it may be better to make the downloads in the dead of the night, when data rates are at their lowest. So, this is great. It’s a way of saving money.
We do have to note that these night bundles need to be handled carefully. You don’t want to end up stressing yourself by staying up many days in the middle of the night. You could end up having more issues than you bargained for. If you can afford it’s better to look for cheaper alternatives to mobile data. Get Telkom of something.
