It has already been 26 days since I subscribed to N4,000 MTN Hynet bundle plan and I just checked my balance and noticed that I still had up to 1GB of unused data available for my use. I only have about 5 days to use up this data before it expires on Sunday 17th November. It seems that this month is the best month ever when it comes to saving costs on my internet service.

Personally, I use MTN's Hynet service and normally subscribe twice and monthly to the prepaid bundled data plan that goes for N4000 with 3GB and a validity period of 30 days. So, I normally used to spend about N8000 per month or more if the data gets used up and since the N4000 plan doesn't even do it for me.

Initially, when I started using MTN's hynet service, it came with an unlimited data plan for under N10,000 in a month and I enjoyed that while it lasted but since they increased the price for their unlimited data plan to over 30k per month, I decided to stick with their prepaid data plan which came with the lowest cost.

If you use the internet a lot, I'm sure that they'd be times you would just want to reduce your internet costs and rather use the extra money saved on other more important things rather than just the internet. So, I decided this November to just try to reduce my internet usage on MTN HYNET and was marveled that I could actually use only N4000 for the month If I just customized my Chrome browser settings.

What I basically did to ensure that the MTN hynet data plan lasted for up to a month was to disable images, javascript and plug-ins on my Google Chrome browser which I regularly use and since then, it happened that I've only spend about 66% of my internet data for the month even though the month is almost finished by 80%.

You too can do the same. If you are on a prepaid data plan that normally ends in a month, you can reduce your internet data usage and hence costs by simply disabling images, javascript and plug-ins in your browser menu whether it's for your phone or personal computer. I did it to my browser and have already saved N4000 this month on MTN hynet.

Your presentation is quite useful. I commend you for your brilliant discovery. I need an information from you or any person about Hynet outdoor device. The questions are:

1. The reception coverage (meter radius) from the point of installation.(Outdoor device)
2. With an average user of 8-10 people, and average down load or application updates over the net, what would be the likely consumption in Gigabyte per month.(just estimate)
3. Is it possible to extend the network coverage slightly by using a Bridge device or network regenerator for WiMax device like Hynet?

Thank you. I expect your response.

1. The range covers about 10 meters
2. 10 people can use up to 50GB a month if all they do is basic stuff(checking emails, social networking, reading news and blogging) and not heavy downloads. It would go higher if using heavy sites or watching movies.
3. I've heard about Wifi signal and detection boosters so I think it can work.
