Airtel, the telecom service provider today announced that they will be expanding their data rollover facility to its broadband customers across India. Under this scheme, the company will be carry forwarding the unused data of its customers during a billing cycle to the next one. However, customers can only accumulate up to 1,000GB of data. The company first introduced the data rollover facility for its postpaid customers back in July as a part of its Project Next initiative where the customers were able to accumulate up to 200GB of data.
Here’s the basic understanding as to how the service works, If an Airtel Broadband user has a plan where he gets 150GB of data per month, however, he is only able to use 50GB of data, the rest of the unused data will rollover to the next month. So as per this example, the user will be getting 250GB of data for use in the next month.
“At Airtel, our constant endeavour is to deliver best in class service experience and great value to our customers. With this innovation, our home broadband users no longer have to worry about their unused data, which will always be available to them. Home broadband continues to drive the massive growth of in-home consumption of online content and the combination of Airtel V-Fiber and ‘data rollover’ will enable a truly world-class experience for today’s digital homes,”
said, George Mathen, CEO – Homes, Bharti Airtel.
Interestingly, this facility isn’t applicable to all the broadband plans that the company has to offer. In the press note that was sent to media, the company states, “Existing customers can check the data rollover eligibility on MyAirtel App.”
