I think Airtel is the best network today when it comes to data prices , with free Facebook, sika kookoo promo and this very promo have set the pace of data prices in Ghana. i personally would recommended them for this initiative, we also know they have improve internet speed and also doing some major upgrades of their system.

Judging according to WhIPL4$h submission, i also think their fast and efficient handling of problems have also improves. I think Ghanian will give them the benefit of doubt considering how responsible and immediate Airtel are looking to solve this issues and also keeping their customers informed They are certainly the network to watch in 2015, KUDOS AIRTEL. bravo.
i have not used it for a while because it was sometimes too disappointing. But i will try it out once again tonight. I just want to understand how it works, then stops, then works again after some time.

its criminal on their part to not inform us of this decision. Sometimes i fail to understand these Networks. What shows that this is not a deliberate attempt to steal peoples airtime. I bundled yesterday without knowing that it is no more working, and the only response i could get after calling them was that they "are sorry " for not communicating to us. Up to now that mistake has not been corrected and i know more people will fall in my shoes today. This is uncalled for .

This comes at a time when we were showering praises on them for taking that bold decision. Another side is that a lot of people spend the night sleeping and not browsing. So they get less revenue during the night time. Hence charging 1 cedi for unlimited browsing for the whole night would not be bad at all for them.
Then comes bandwidth and the issues of congestion. A lot more people than normal would be using the available bandwith at the time. This is simply because of the price factor: 1 cedi only for the whole night. They have to implement proper load balancing and bandwith management schemes in order to avoid "collapsing" the network.
I think that's what they left out. So the service was was only available for some people. They would have to go back to the drawing board and figure things out properly.
For me, am not surprised that they have suspended this promo abruptly judging from the fact that is very cheap and affordable.... I was even wondering how long they were willing to go with this promo... When i first saw it, it sounded like it was too good to be true since they already had another promo, sika Kokoo, going on which with just 1 cedi, you could get 750 mb of data when in actual fact 750 mb costs around 15 cedis....
Maybe, they thought people will reluctantly browse the net between the hours of 12 - 6 am.. BUt they were wrong ... I guess after a few trial weeks, they've realized that they were loosing and could close down... They forgot that here in Ghana we hardly get access to browsing the internet at that cheap rate and thought they could get the better of us... But finally they've realized it and they have to restrategize... Hope they don't do same to the sika kokoo.....
Hahaha....who in Ghana wouldn't take advantage of such an opportunity. Data is still VERY expensive so this one came as a big relief for many people. But it looks like Airtel came with a knife to a gun fight. And they left like a dog with their tail between the legs We're patiently waiting for them.
They assume the hunters will go to sleep and forget bout the unlimited browsing during that midnight to dawn period , but they soon got to find out that the hunters did not care about the 60mb data they subscribe to during the the day and the only time we were using was during the midnight to dawn. Ghanians are hungry for unlimited data. They lost a gun fight to the hunters, but the hunters will still be wild awake to pounce again... [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Hahaha....But I have news. Airtel have just revised the amount to 5 Cedis. Simply dial *125# to see. I wonder how many people will still be willing to pay 5 cedis for night browsing. This is now "Survival of the fittest". Eliminate any financially weak elements from the equation. Let few people enjoy
yes oo just saw on their facebook page. And according to them it's only for this nyte, 22-5-2015. I am really shock why such a leap jump from 1 to 5 that's very disappointing, it's too much for an average ghnaaina. shame u, airtel.
@evans, if you subscribe the 1ghc you only get 30mb and nothing else. You will need to buy the 5ghc before you can enjoy free browsing during that night you subscribed. here is the new message you get when you dial *125#.
Send:*125# Receive: Free Nite - 12am to 6am from GHC 5
Select Option: 1. Check balance 2. 30MB @ 1GHC 5 days 3. 10MB @ 50p 1 day 4. 200MB @ 5GH 20days 5. Other Bundles
Send: 4 Receive: Your balance will be sent to you via sms.
Looks like there's another twist to this. Airtel intentionally added that this was only valid on some particular days only and not all days. I think that in order to enjoy this offer you have to receive the feedback of "FREE NITE - 12-6AM FROM 5GHC" before proceeding.

It seems airtel is just playing around with us. I called customer care and was told you can subscribe to a 1 cedi bundle and browse at dawn but the same airtel company tells us to buy the 5 cedis bundle. hmmm
