H2O Wireless To Offer Rollover Data On Plans Starting at $30

AT&T MVNO H2O Wireless notified their dealers today that beginning Tuesday November 3, unused high-speed data on all monthly plans will roll over.

This is obviously a good thing as there's nothing worse than losing the data you paid for. However, there are a few limitations to roll over that you need to watch out for:
  • No more than 10 GB of unused rollover data can be accumulated in an account at any time.
  • Rollover is lost if the user changes plans or the account expires and isn't renewed within 30 days.
  • Only unused data from the plan's high speed 4G or LTE data allotment can be rolled over.
H2O, which at 17 years old, is one of the oldest AT&T MVNOs. It's part of Locus Telecommunications, which is owned by KDDI, one of Japan's largest mobile operators.

H2O offers five monthly plans (listed below), all of which are eligible for rollover data:

Name Price Voice Domestic Text/MMS International Data
$30 Unlimited $30/mo unlimited unlimited unlimited calls to 50+ countries, $10 Int'l Credit, unlimited texts 500 MB
$35 Unlimited $35/mo unlimited unlimited unlimited calls to 50+ countries, $10 Int'l Credit, unlimited texts Unlimited, 500 MB high speed 1
$40 Unlimited $40/30 days unlimited unlimited unlimited calls to 50+ countries, $20 Int'l Credit, unlimited texts Unlimited, 1 GB high speed 1
$50 Unlimited $50/30 days unlimited unlimited unlimited calls to 50+ countries, $20 Int'l Credit, unlimited texts unlimited, 2 GB high speed 1
$60 Unlimited $60/30 days unlimited unlimited unlimited calls to 50+ countries, $20 Int'l Credit, unlimited texts Unlimited, 4 GB high speed 1
1 Data speeds throttled to about 128 Kps for the rest of the plan month after the high speed allotment is used.

H20 offers a 10% discount for customers paying by auto-pay. High speed data on H2O includes LTE. Coverage is on the AT&T native network only.

  1. Tempting, but no. Without the courtesy 100 MB tethering and 5 GB of LTE data + unlimited text and 100 minutes that comes with T-Mobile's secret plan each month for $30, I'm staying put where I am.

    1. Your "secret" plan isn't that big of a deal anymore. I'm with Smartel a T-Mobile business line reseller and pay $35 for Unlimited Talk n Text with 10 GB with all of T-Mobile features and benefits included as well.

    2. The $30 tmobile plan isn't that exciting anymore. Many beat it and on a better network to boot.

    3. How much can you do on 100mb tethering? Not a snarky question, but a practical one.

  2. If only they allowed mobile hotspot...

  3. So this data rollover doesn't expire?

    1. Not according to the blurb. They cap it at 10GB instead, so if you get to 10GB, you will not get any more data until you use some of it. But then, if you're at 10GB and you're paying more than $30/month, you're should probably be on a cheaper plan anyway. (Note: you will lose your rolled over data if you change plans.)

  4. What is the deal with all the T-Mobile fanboys out there? AT&T Go phone has been allowing tethering (Without hacks) for a while now at no extra charge. Plus Verizon also allows it on their prepaid network. I have a LG G2 at $60 Mo I get 2.5 GB of full speed data rather I tether or not. For an Internet Radio station operator it has came in quite handy when my Internet acts up. I know since I switched to CenturyLink it is far less, but its nice to have a back up plan. Plus when I'm away from home I could do a mobile broadcast as well with my mobile hotspot. Something fur any Internet Radio Station operator to consider if they want to do a remote broadcast. Put that together with a part 15 transmitter and you really have a great deal.

    1. Verizon is much better than T-Mobile if you can afford it. The AT&T options are much better than T-mobile, and sometimes cost the same or even less.

    2. "What is the deal with all the T-Mobile fanboys out there?" It's the same deal that the Sprint "shills," Verizon "bots," AT&T "pimps" and Cricket "chirpies" are pushing. If someone doesn't agree with your choice of carriers, your knee jerks and you call them names. Schoolyard insults. Insecurity.

  5. Nice timing, for me. Just signed onto the $30/month plan a few weeks ago, for the free international calls. Not a heavy data user, since almost everywhere I visit in my hometown has wifi already, but building up a reserve of a couple of gig over the next few months could come in useful, and the price of the upgraded is right...

  6. Watch out if you are already on H2O--it may be difficult to get the rollover data based on my experience of being unable to get the 10% autopay discount despite three calls to cs and three promises I would get it. I gave up after three renewals did not include the discount advertised and promised. I would wait to make sure others are reporting all is working as advertised.

    1. Apparently, that won't be much of an issue. I'm on day one of my new month for the 500MB plan, and the H2O Wireless website tells me I have 910MB left for the month!

      Nice!

    2. I've been using h2O for 1 1\2 yrs., it's the best service at this price I've had. I just paid & noticed my data rolled over so no problem for those who are already on the $30 plan. Verizon is not the best but hands down the most expensive provider. I'm sold on MVNO's.

  7. Will the data rollover for just one month, like with AT&T and GoPhone, or for longer? If longer, then I would strongly consider moving my accounts over from Cricket family plan. We're paying $30/line for 2.5GB throttled to 8 Mbps, no rollover, no int'l calls/texts other than Mex/Can. H2O $45/month (after autopay) plan for 2GB w/rollover, no throttle, int'l calls/texts is getting pretty close. Just don't know if I can tolerate H2O's horrible customer service again...

  8. Do they still have the feature cards for data? I can't seem to find the link on their website.

  9. I have an old SIM card, so only get HPSA+ not LTE. Does that mean my data won't rollover?

    1. Only H2O knows for sure but I think your data should rollover.

  10. Thanks Dennis.

    I wish they would give 1G data at the $30 monthly plan - like Pageplus does.

    1. But PagePlus doesn't provide free international calls to dozens of countries. That's the great thing about the MVNO market -- there's a wide variety of services to choose from, depending upon your needs. For my needs, H2O was already the best fit, and just got a little better with the rollover feature.
