Xl, currently has a special offer on behalf of internet package (is it that?) just like the others offer lately. Xl named it package Xtra Online, that which the package itself is available in three options, Sahur/Midnight Harian, Sahur/Midnight Bulanan, and Nunggu Buka, where each of them hold their own rules. I don't know if this offer is preferable than the previous one, HotRod, which is no longer available today. HotRod package has been stopped last week 15 july, 2012. I heard some customers cried for that discontinuation for the package was considered as the preferable one than the other packages available, and maybe even preferable than the Xtra Online package that we're now talking about.
Well, let's find out how many money each of the package will charge you.
This package will charge you Rp 2.000 for 20MB and will be active for a day and can be used only from 00.00 to 06.00 o'clock.

Rp. 10.000 a month, Rp. 35.000 six months, Rp. 50.000 a year. Isn't it a good enough reason to break with your current girlfriend?
