T-Mobile offers data rollover for unused data

T-Mobile offers data rollover for unused data

T-Mobile customers will enjoy rollover of unused data to the next billing cycle, the move termed by many technology experts as a game-changer in the telecom market. T-Mobile will be the first carrier in the country to allow rollover of unused data. Telecom majors have been offering bigger data usage plans, but no company has so far offered data rollover to customers.

T-Mobile customers will be able to stash their unused data limits for up to a year. This move will reduce the bills for customers as users not completely using their data each month, can opt for smaller data plan. The piled up data limits can be used for up to 12 months. T-Mobile will be offering the new plan from next month.

T-Mobile has offered this option only to customers with Simple Choice plans with at least 3 GB per month data for smartphones and 1 GB for tablets. Customers eligible for the new system will be automatically shifted. At the start of the program, T-Mobile will also offer 10GB data limit to every customer.

T-Mobile has been successful in capturing more consumers compared to other major telecom providers, Verizon and AT&T. T-Mobile network is not as robust outside the metropolitan areas compared to Verizon and AT&T.

With the current move, T-Mobile, the fourth largest telecom provider in the country, will increase the headache for management of Verizon and AT&T if they decide to match T-Mobile's offering.
