Following the outrage that greeted the discovery that MTN was passing off its 4.5GB Night Plan as a new smartphone plan, the Y’hello network has modified the SMS sales pitch it sends out to subscribers.

The plan has not been changed in any way, it seems. Just the message. At least, subscribers now know exactly what they are signing up for.
