Data Banking

What is data banking?

Nobody likes wasting so why should your data be any different? Lebara plans now come with up to 200GB mobile data banking so you can keep your unused data each month.

How does data banking work?

If for example you get 36GB on your first month and at the end of the month you’ve only used 30GB. Instead of losing the remaining 6GB of mobile data, it will rollover to your bank where you can store it for as long as you continue your Lebara service. At expiry of a subscriber’s plan, and if they have a data bank, they have a 48-hour grace period to purchase another eligible plan, otherwise they lose their data bank balance.

End of Month 1

Customer has 6GB remaining on their plan. 6GB will be banked when recharged before expiry.

End of Month 2

Customer has 3GB remaining on their plan. 3GB will be banked when recharged before expiry.

End of Month 3

Customer has exhausted their data and begun to use banked data

What plans are eligible?

Data Banking is available on all 30 Day, Long Term (180 and 360 Day Plans) and Mobile Broadband Plans.
