Based on NCC’s directive: a new rule is now applicable on data bundle to allow rollover their un-used main data bundle when they renew their bundles after expiry or buy another bundle of the same category within the specified rollover period below. MTN has taken the lead to implement the NCC new policy.
As we know that MTN data rollover feature is only applicable to monthly plans, but due to NCC new rules, MTN has added rollover features to their daily and weekly plan. Also, introduced grace/rollover period on their monthly data plan for you to get more value on your Mobile Internet plans.
|Data Category||Validity||Roll Over Period|
|Daily bundles||1 Day||1Day|
|Weekly bundles||3 Days||3 Days|
|Monthly bundles||7 Days||7 Days|
How It WorK? Daily Bundle: If you have subscribed to a daily plan on June 26, the expiry day is June 27 but you will still have another 24 hours to subscribe – June 28 – as Grace Period. Weekly Bundle: For weekly bundle, you have an extra 3 days to subscribe a new bundle before your data balance is wiped out. Monthly Bundle: For monthly bundle, you have an extra 7 days to subscribe a new bundle before your data balance is wiped out. Note: Your data balance is expected to still be working during this Grace Period. NCC said that all telecoms operators must henceforth give a 14-day window to subscribers, after the expiration of their monthly data subscriptions, to exhaust their unused data bundle before rolling over. Now, MTN shows up with just 7 days grace period. What do you have to say about this?
