Vodafone adds 4G data rollover option to its PAYG plans

Vodafone has today launched a new data rollover option for its pay-as-you-go (PAYG) Big Value Bundles, allowing customers to use leftover data from one month in the next.

Other UK providers, such as Sky Mobile, already offer data rollover services, but now Vodafone seems to be catching up to its rivals.

The Big Value Bundles allow users to sign up to a SIM plan for a 30-day period, with the entry-level option offering 500MB of 4G data, 150 minutes of calls, and unlimited texts for £10.

Now, customers who sign up to one of the Big Value Bundles will simply need to top up within the 30-day period to renew their subscription and ensure their unused data rolls over into the next month.

At the top end of the PAYG spectrum, Vodafone offers 12GB of data, unlimited minutes and texts, along with 500MB of roaming data and 100 minutes and texts to use abroad, for £30.

Glafkos Persianis, Vodafone UK Commercial Director said: “We are delighted to be offering yet another industry first to our customers by introducing Data Rollover.

“Through listening to our customers, we’re determined to simplify our products and offer even better value for money, so that they can enjoy the UK’s winning network wherever they are.”

Seeing as several other providers, including Sky, iD, and O2 offer similar services, it’s hardly the “industry first” that Persianis claims it to be, but it is nice to see Vodafone finally adding a rollover option to its PAYG bundles.

Customers will only be able to carry unused data over to a new month once, as rollover data will expire at the end of the renewed 30-day period.

It seems all the Big Value Bundles now come with the rollover service, so it doesn’t matter which option you go for if you’re looking to sign up.
