Airtel is now offering its data rollover option for broadband users in the country. The second largest wired internet provider is looking to build its armoury before Reliance Jio hits the country in full force with its JioFiber service.

With the data rollover feature, all existing Airtel broadband users can utilise their unused data from last month, without letting it go to waste. According to Airtel, every user can accumulate up to 1,000 GB of data under this facility.

While Airtel might not end the fair usage policy (FUP)s on its plans, the carry-forward option may help keep consumers from switching to providers like ACT and Excitel, among others.

The data rollover option was first made available to Airtel mobile users in August this year. Airtel postpaid customers also had the option of sharing data across all connections with members of their family.

The company has also been on a free data spree, offering up to 30GB data over three months to new and existing users, thereby making them as an appealing alternative to Jio.

The ‘Data Rollover’ facility will ensure that Airtel home broadband customers never waste any data that they pay for and continue enjoying a great online experience. Customers can accumulate up to 1000 GB data* and easily track their usage and balance data available on MyAirtel App.

They’ve also opened the gates for VoLTE network, available in limited regions right now, with a widespread availability mooted for early next year.

Airtel might have complained about the issues posed by telcos ever since Reliance Jio made its entry, but recent figures reported by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) indicate that Airtel has added the most number of mobile users over the past 4-5 months.

But when it comes to the wired internet segment, Airtel still has a long way to go before matching or surpassing BSNL’s base of 9.8 million users.
