There's one thing that I just don't get about pre-paid. You pay someone money for something - either an amount of time to talk on a phone or an amount of data - and it's yours to do with as you see fit. Until that stuff that you paid money for expires after 30 days. Well, David Flynn over at APC tells us that Telstra is making its iPad plans a little bit better value by allowing customers to roll over excess data for an extra 30 days if you top up before your credit expires.
In typical Telstra fashion though, it's not a simple process. There are two different rates for data depending on how much data you recharge with and the amount of data rolled over is based on a dollar value not a data value.
If you're as confused as we are, check out the APC story - there's a fairly solid breakdown of the rollover policy over there.
