8ta announced today (2 April 2012) that its midnight surfer data offering, which provides internet surfing at a discounted rate, will be extended by one hour. The name will also be changed to ‘night surfer’.

“The data option will now be known as night surfer, rather than midnight surfer as it has previously been known. Users will now be able to enjoy surfing on 8ta’s high speed network from 11pm, rather than midnight, until 5am,” 8ta said in a press statement.

“We analysed our network load curves during the course of the day and have decided that we do have capacity at 23h00 to cater for increased network utilisation, without compromising the user experience. This is a case of passing the benefit back to the customer,” said Amith Maharaj, senior managing executive at Telkom Mobile.

8ta’s night surfer is available on the company’s 3GB Go Big service (2GB + 1GB), its 60GB + 60GB promotion offer and the 10GB Internet 5 promo’s midnight surfer bundle option.
