Getting close to paying off my phone (interest free plan) and am still disappointed in Sparks offerings compared to almost all their competitors and even compared to prepaid on Spark.

 

Anyone reckon we'll see rollover data etc on Spark anytime soon or a new round of plans? Everyone else in the game has it now, and I can get a bit more data on a competitor but loyalty (10 years) wants to make me stay but loyalty only goes so far :/

I get the feeling that they want to keep the roll over data/minutes/etc. for their Skinny brand where as the Spark offers interest free, Spotify and other perks which offset the roll over date/minutes/etc. So I guess there is always Skinny as an alternative which would allow you to still benefit from Spark's coverage. I'm on the $46 deal and it has been going ok.

It wouldn't surprise me if they didn't offer rollover because of the interest free as said. I've been enquiring about my plan at the moment as well, which is nearly at the end of the term. Some months I go through quite a lot of data, other months I don't. I don't see why I should lose data that I've paid for but haven't used. Unless the offerings improve, I'll be looking elsewhere soon.

Just get a bit annoyed that I don't get spotify on my pay monthly plan while mate on $19 prepaid does... :/

 

But yeah I've thought the same. May be just time to go
