AT&T announced Wednesday that it will follow the lead of T-Mobile and C Spire and begin rolling over its customer’s unused data.
According to a press release, beginning January 25, all new and current AT&T Mobile Share Value customers will automatically receive the Rollover Data feature at no additional cost.
The new feature will allow AT&T customers to rollover unused data to the next month’s billing cycle, however that extra data can’t accumulate and must be used within the following month.
AT&T gives the following 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.
