New data rollover in my PAYG tariff.

From Aug 23rd I was informed that my PAYG tariff would be changed to double up on my texts and minutes. I was also told that any data left at the end of the current month would rollover to the next month to a maximum of 4GB. Does this actually mean that if I have, say 1GB left at the end of September, my new data allowance for October will be 3GB?

Regards

Re: New data rollover in my PAYG tariff.

What it means is that it adds any data not used to your allowances for next month, so if you have 2gb and used 1gb, next month you would have 3gb. If you did the same the following month you would have 4gb and that's the max you can roll over too, so you could never save more that 4gb.

Thanks but isn't that what I intimated? I know that the maximum I could ever rollover to would be 4GB (I am/was allowed 2GB each month so this new tariff will give me upto twice that amount providing I have unused data at the end of the current month.

I didn't know how much you had to start with as you didn't say, so I just used those figures as an example.

Sorry. Yes, I had 2GB data and 250 minutes and 2000 texts? Forgotten that already. 

Thanks anyway.
