Circles.Life mobile plans
Asia’s first fully digital telco has arrived in Australia
Is Circles.Life right for me?
- What does Circles.Life offer? A postpaid SIM-only monthly plan that runs on Optus's 4G network.
- Product highlights: The $28 plan includes 20GB plus 3GB bill-shock protection and unlimited calls and texts. New customers can also sign up by 30 November 2019 and get $10 off the bill for 12 months.
- Watch out for: The digital telco has yet to establish a reputation in the Australian MVNO market and offers only one plan for its Australian consumers.
Circles.Life postpaid plans
How does Circles.Life compare?
Circles.Life Australia launched in mid-September with one postpaid plan. The $28 SIM-only Monthly Plan includes 20GB and unlimited calls and texts. Roaming and international calls and texts are on a pay-as-you-go basis.
Think Mobile and Pennytel offers similar plans with the same data, albeit with a heftier price tag. For lower data inclusions, you can get plans on the same price range with Exetel, TeleChoice, Mate Communicate and others.
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 a no-frills data plan for its Australian consumers. Their postpaid plan includes 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.
