AT&T will start offering to roll over any unused monthly data from January 25

In a January 7 announcement made at the Consumers Electronics Show in Las Vegas, US wireless carrier AT&T has revealed that it will start offering 'Rollover data' advantage to the subscribers of its Mobile Share Value plans later this month.

According to the AT&T announcement, the more than 50 million subscribers of the carrier's Mobile Share Value plans will be able to roll over any unused monthly data which resides in any of their plans to the next month, with effect from January 25, 2015.

Asserting that the new 'Rollover data' offer will enable Mobile Share Value subscribers to hold on to any unused data bandwidth from one month to another, AT&T said that subscribers of the mentioned plans will be able to share the extra data across all the devices on all of their accounts. The carrier also added that the 'Rollover data' feature will be offered to both consumer and business accounts automatically on January 25.

The 'Rollover data' offering by AT&T comes within weeks of an announcement by smaller rival T-Mobile, which introduced a new 'Data Stash' feature pertaining to its own unused high speed data.

In response to a question as to whether AT&T was following in T-Mobile's footsteps, Ralph de la Vega - President and CEO of AT&T Mobility and Business Solutions - said that AT&T was the pioneer of the 'rollover' concept as it had introduced the 'rollover voice minutes' feature years back.
