Circles.Life, the fastest growing mobile operator in Singapore, is marking another milestone as Asia’s first truly digital telco with the launch of a number of unlimited services.
Unlimited Data on Demand – Circles.Life customers can now get unlimited mobile data for only $3 a day – on demand .This will not lock customers to any contract and is available every day of the year at 4G+ speeds. Like all unlimited data plans in the market, there is a fair use policy. For Unlimited Data on Demand, speeds will be managed after 100GB of usage per month. Further, Circles.Life customers are eligible to use Unlimited Data on Demand without subscribing to the 20GB for $20 data upgrade – giving consumers the power to choose what works best for them instead of having to pay over $100 per month to get unlimited data or be locked into annual contracts. Unlimited Data on Demand can be activated anytime by simply turning it on the CirclesCare mobile dashboard.
WhatsApp Passport– Circles.Life continues to leverage its official partnership with US – based WhatsApp by launching an add – on that allows unlimited roaming for WhatsApp. Starting from just $1 per day, customers will get unlimited data usage for WhatsApp messaging while roaming with partner networks in over 18 countries, including Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Australia, USA, India and the UK.
Unlimited Outgoing Calls – All Circles.Life basic plans currently come with 100 free minutes of talktime. Now, they have a new option of getting unlimited local outgoing calls by adding $16 per month. Added to the base plan of $28 and the $2 per month free incoming calls value added service, this creates an option to get 6 GB of data and unlimited incoming and outgoing calls for only $46 per month.
Circles.Life believes that the current unlimited plans in the market are limiting the customers instead of empowering them. Unlimited plans should not be limited to weekend usage, be throttled after hitting a small data cap or be tied to annual contracts. They also should not be available only to consumers with deep pockets.
Try before you buy
In addition, Circles.Life now allows new subscribers try out the first month of subscription for free. All new customers will not be charged for the first month of their basic subscription. This is for a limited time only.
International Expansion in Indonesia
Lastly, having established the asset light digital telco as the model for the future of the telco industry, Circles.Life is seeing an emergence of players both existing and new trying a similar approach. Home-grown Circles.Life has received interest from telco players from multiple geographies looking to bring the same innovation to their respective markets.
As Circles.Life has always believed in this vision for the industry and is looking to expand to Indonesia as the first market outside of Singapore. This will make them the first fully digital platform for mobile services in Indonesia.
Circles.Life will launch in Indonesia by the 2nd half of the year. This rapid expansion is only made possible with Circles-X, Circles.Life’s innovative and proprietary cloud-based infrastructure which allows new country launches in weeks instead of years and at
5% of the cost. In the same wayas how other asset light digital players in entertainment, transportation and hospitality has re-imagined their respective industries, Circles.Life believes Circles-X will re-imagine the future of the telco industry.
This is a great idea especially since I’m that guy who busts his 8GB data almost every month, but the expansion into Indonesia is questionable as it does put a risk factor for the company
