Circles.Life launches unlimited data on demand for S$3

Circles.Life launches unlimited data on demand for S$3

Circles.Life has launched a new Unlimited Data on Demand service that will let us customers receive unlimited mobile data for just S$3 a day.

The Unlimited Data on Demand add-on requires a basic plan of $28 a month that comes with 6GB of mobile data. The basic plan also comes with 100 minutes of local talk-time and a free Caller ID feature. Circles.Life customers can activate Unlimited Data at any time from the Circles.Life app CirclesCare mobile dashboard. The plan is subject to a fair use policy, but bandwidth throttling will only kick in after a customer has consumed over 100GB per month. There is no daily cap for data throttling. Do note that after activation, the unlimited data will only be available until the end of that calendar day (i.e. 23:59), so you should probably not activate it late at night.

Circles.Life also announced a new WhatsApp passport service today that allows for unlimited roaming for WhatsApp. Starting from just S$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. 

Circles.Life is also launching an add-on for its basic plans that will give you unlimited local outgoing calls for S$16/month. 

Mr Rameez Ansar, Co-founder and Director at Circles.Life said, "Most of our customers are satisfied with either the 6 GB for $28 base plan or adding $20 more for another 20 GB. For those who want even more, we now have Unlimited Data on Demand.”

To compare to other telcos:

  • Singtel's Data X Infinity add-on gives you unlimited data for S$39.90/month extra, but requires a 24-month contract and is only eligible for Singtel's Combo plans 3 (S$68.90/month), 6 (S$95.90/month), and 12 (S$239.90/month). Singtel's Data X Infinity fair usage policy is capped at 50GB/month, after which speeds will be throttled to 1Mbps.
  • StarHub does not offer a true unlimited data plan; instead, all of its plans offer unlimited data on the weekends without any extra add-ons required, however usage is capped at 10GB/day, after which speeds will be throttled to 1Mbps.
  • M1’s mySIM3 98 SIM-only unlimited mobile data plan costs S$98/month, and requires a 12-month contract. M1's unlimited plan is subject to a fair usage policy, however M1 does not explicitly state when data throttling kicks in, nor what the throttled speeds are.
  • Zero1’s unlimited mobile data plan costs S$29/month and comes with 200 minutes of local talk time and 200 SMS message, but data throttling kicks in after just 3GB/month. Zero1 does not state what its throttled speeds are, however it claims it is fast enough for "WhatsApp, emails, Facebook, Instagram, Spotify and Youtube."
