In what is likely a direct response to T-Mobile’s Data Stash announcement in December, AT&T has announced that starting January 25th their customers will have Rollover Data on their data plans. It is a big win for AT&T customers as now they will be able to keep their unused data each month and roll it over to the next. Even better, you will be able to track your Rollover data through the myAT&T app.In a nutshell, here is how the AT&T Rollover Data will work:
You have a 15GB data account each month and at the end of the first month you only use 10GB. That means the remaining 5GB roll to the second month. So in month two you now have 20GB of data to use. If you consume more than 15GB of data in month two then you start consuming these rollover data gigabytes before any overage charges kick in.
The rollover concept is not new to AT&T as they use to have this on their voice minutes back when plans were more restrictive on their voice minutes. Now in the connected smartphone and tablet world, data is the more important element over voice so having this is a big win for customers.
Here is the full Press Release from AT&T
DALLAS, Jan. 7, 2015 – Today AT&T1 announced it’s bringing back its popular “Rollover” concept – but this time for data. Beginning January 25, all new and current AT&T Mobile Share Value customers will automatically receive the Rollover Data feature at no additional cost.2 Now, all Mobile Share Value customers will have their unused, shareable plan data in a given month roll over to be used within the next month. The best part is that it is simple and easy to track, and Rollover Data benefits the whole family or business – across all smartphones and devices on the same Mobile Share Value plan.
AT&T is making it easier for customers to do more with their data on their terms — all on the nation’s most reliable LTE network with the nation’s strongest LTE signal3. AT&T Mobile Share Value customers will be able to share the data that rolls over from the previous month, a big advantage for families and businesses.
“Rollover Data is an added benefit of being an AT&T Mobile Share Value customer and it’s just another way that we’re saying thanks to our more than 50 million plus Mobile Share Value subscribers,” said Glenn Lurie, President and CEO, AT&T Mobility. “We’re providing even more value and flexibility, and the best part is it’s simple, shareable and easy to track for our customers. All Mobile Share Value customers get this automatically.”
With shareable data rolled from the previous month, AT&T Mobile Share Value customers enjoy more freedom and ability to use their data on their terms across devices.
HERE’S HOW IT WORKS:
- All levels of AT&T Mobile Share Value plan customers automatically receive the Rollover Data feature – no signing up, no additional cost.
- Rollover Data can be shared with everyone on the same Mobile Share Value plan.
- If you do not use your full allotment of plan data in a given month, the extra amount automatically rolls over and is available to be used within the next month.
- Within a given month, you will use your plan allotment first, before you begin using your Rollover Data. Unused Rollover Data does not carry over.
As an example:
If you have four lines and have a 15GB AT&T Mobile Share Value Plan and only use 10GB in a given month, you’ll roll over 5GB and have a total of 20GB available to use within the next month. If you were to only use 10GB in the second month, you’ll again roll over 5GB and have a total of 20GB available the next month. Bottom line: if you have unused plan data this month, it automatically rolls over to be used within the next month in case you need more than your plan’s allotment. This gives you that extra data to do the things you love across all your devices, like surfing the web, watching videos, listening to your favorite music or sending email.
AT&T Mobile Share Value customers will be able to view their Rollover Data balance on the myAT&T app or online at att.com.
