Slingshot Keeps the Data Rolling

Slingshot has once again paved the way as one of the first telco providers in New Zealand to offer Data ROLLOVER on all its new Broadband plans.

Not only does Slingshot already offers its customers some of the best value homeline and biggest broadband data plans in the country, now unused data from one month rolls into the next.

Slingshot’s Chief Executive, Mark Callander, believes Data ROLLOVER is yet another way that Slingshot is leading innovation in the market and ensuring Kiwis get the best service out of their ISP.

“We strive to provide the best broadband experience to our customers, and part of that is making sure loyal Slingshot customers don’t lose their unused data at the end of the month.” says Callander.

“Our goal is to make sure that our customers not only get great value plans compared to our competitors, but that they also get the full value of the services they’ve paid for,” he says

Because all of Slingshots new broadband plans now come with Data ROLLOVER, this means regardless of the plan customers are on or how much data they use, each month the unused data is rolled into the next and does not expire for an entire year.

Callander feels Data ROLLOVER is another step in the right direction for both Slingshot and its customers.

“We want our customers to enjoy the benefits of high speed and cheap broadband without worrying about losing data and services they’ve paid for at the end of every month. We’re proud to be the largest Telco in New Zealand to offer data Rollover to its customers – it’s definitely the next step in customer service and value for money.”

“Part of Slingshots strategy is to compete heavily on product value and price and give New Zealanders a welcome alternative to the overpriced monopolies they’re used to,” concludes Callander.

Slingshot’s innovation is not only applauded here in New Zealand. Slingshot has recently been named one of five finalists at the World Forum Broadband Awards in Amsterdam, for its highly innovative UNLIMITED broadband plan. The winner will be announced later this month.

I think this is great, I've singed up for a data rollover plan and I'm sure sometime In the future it might come in handy.
While most of the time I come under my data cap from time to time I go over my data cap with data now rolling over I not need to worry.

we've been on the 100GB plan for a few months now, does it count for us or do we have to enable it?

My understanding is that you need to "upgrade" to a new plan to qualify for the data rollover.

I just upgraded my plan earlier this week. Have shifted from an old grandfathered plan to one of their new ones. I now get 10GB more data than before and also am paying $10 less. Normally only use about 60-70% of my data allowance anyway, but the $$$ and the rollover finaly got me motivated.

hmm, i see under the change plan menu there's the 100gb with rollover option for $1 more than we're paying now... why not.

Yep!

Give Slingshot a ring and they can change your plan to which ever suits the best with the added roll over option. Its best to call before your billing date is up (3 to 5 days before) so your plan switches over on that date.





Sometimes what you don't get is a blessing in disguise!

Yes you need to "Upgrade" in some cases it may be cheaper when I upgraded my 250gb plan it got cheaper.

I did the same on dads account he was on the 10gb plan without rollover i upgraded to the 20gb plan with rollover and its only $1 extra.... Great Value for money :)
Next time my little brother goes home from school dad should have loads of data saved up and wont go over the limit :)
