Enjoy 1GB of data, 30 minutes of talktime, 10 SMS and caller ID each month for free?

Mobile services provider Circles.Life is offering a $0 per month Flexi Plan for users who can keep within the data limit.

At a press conference at Raffles 1-Altitude on Tuesday (22 May), Circles.Life co-founder Rameez Ansar said the plan would enable internet access for everyone.

“Technological evolution is reshaping the way businesses operate, and the way people run their lives. That’s why we believe in empowering people by making digital access more available for everyone,” Rameez said in a press release.

Under the plan, users have the option to add on 1GB data for $8 or 2GB for $12, and 30 minutes talktime with free 10 SMS, at $5 each month.

But for users with an appetite for more data, they can choose two other plans – the $28 base plan with 6GB data per month or the $48 add-on plan with 26GB data. All three plans are for SIM cards only.

In addition, Circles.Life is offering 70 per cent off current pay-as-you-go roaming prices for usage in 34 countries.

Users can sign up for the Flexi Plan online and their SIM card will be delivered to their address. They have to activate the SIM or buy the data add-ons through Circles.Life’s mobile app.

Alternatively, they can sign up and get their SIM card on the spot at the General Post Office, Sengkang and Woodlands post offices.

The Circles.Life flexi plan comes after Zero Mobile earlier launched a plan which users can get credits off their bill with referrals.

MyRepublic, a competing Mobile Virtual Network Operator, last week unveiled two mobile plans for its supporters and current subscribers.

Under its Uno plan, MyRepublic is offering 1GB of mobile data, 1,000 minutes of talktime and 1,000 SMS messages at $8 a month. One of the plan’s key features is “boundless data”, in which users will experience slower mobile surfing speeds when they exceed their data limits, rather than pay for excess usage.
