Rollover Data, recommendation for PM team

Would be very useful to have, so customers would not waste any of their unused data.

Public Mobile is prepaid, basic no-frills mobile operator.

 

The main competitors are Lucky and Chatr. As none of these companies offer rollover data, I do not expect PM to offer it anytime soon.

True that they don't offer rollover data, but they both do offer throttled unlimited data once your package data is used up. People who are worried about burning though their data typically are the ones who ended up with excess data at the end and would benefit from rollover data, if we had the same unlimited data people may use their package data more freely.

Good point. Personally I consider these to be 2 distinct options:
1. Rollover data
2. Unlimited data at up to 500 Kbps.

So, does that mean that even though your data is used up, you still have it albeit with a much reduced speed? Thanks.

Yes.

 

Here is what is posted to Lucky Mobile website.

You can also continue to use data at reduced speeds of up to 128 Kbps for email, light browsing and messaging at no additional charge once you have exceeded your allotted 3G data.

On the other providers it does.  I still find this unlimited data just a gimic.  It is ok for people who are just checking email or maybe posting on Social Media but those that are going through 8-10GB of data (the amounts on the upper tiers before unlimited) will not survive with the speed throttled back as they are a heavy consumer of the data.  They will then feel the need to up there plan to 12-15GB of data before it gets throttled.

If like me, you are never over your plan limit, there's no reason to sign-up for heavily throttled unlimited data. Btw Lucky has this option available only on their $25+ plans. It's not available with their $15 plan.

Thanks. I misread the post, thought that it implied that PM had the throttled data usage.
