Circles.Life postpaid plans
How does Circles.Life compare?
Circles.Life Australia launched in September 2019 with one postpaid plan. The $28 SIM-only Monthly Plan includes 20GB and unlimited calls and texts. Customers have the option to get either a $20 10GB add-on or a $6 3GB data boost.
The plan also includes an optional 300 mins of international calls to 15 countries, which costs $5. The international credit is available for outgoing calls to Canada, China, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand, the UK, and the US.
TeleChoice, Think and Pennytel offer similar plans with the same data, albeit with a heftier price tag. For lower data inclusions, you can get plans in the same price range with Dodo, Mate, Moose Mobile and others.
Here's how Circles.Life's postpaid plan compares for the similar data and price range:
Why should you consider Circles.Life?
Founded in 2016 in Singapore, Circles.Life offers a 100% digital experience to its customers. The company was awarded Singapore's #1 recommended telco by YouGov, the largest local consumer advocacy group. Through their own app, customers can check data usage in real time, get bonus data through a personal referral code and chat with experts right in the app.
As in the Singaporean market, Circles.Life offers no-frills data plans for its Australian consumers. Their postpaid plans include a 3GB bill shock protection — when the 20GB runs out, you get the additional data without extra costs. You can then choose to add a 20GB $10 add-on charged to your monthly bill, a 3GB $6 data boost for one-time purchase charged immediately, or pay as you go at $10/GB.
The digital telco's referral program is a major perk. You can refer a friend and get a 20GB bonus for one month, and your friend gets the same data bonus for three months.
Circles.Life runs on Optus's 4G network, which covers the majority of the Australian population. Initially rolled out in NSW, VIC, QLD, TAS and ACT, they have expanded and now deliver SIM cards to all Australian states.
