A lock-in that’s not really a lock-in contract, you say?
Circles.Life once again rewrites the rules for the telco industry with their launch of a “try-before-you-buy” business model. Now you can get a taste of the Circles.Life experience for free before deciding to buy a full plan with the launch of its new Circles Switch initiative.
Circles Switch offers customers a free SIM-only line stocked with 20 GB monthly local data, 100 minutes of talktime and 20 SMS messages. There are no hidden costs whatsoever – no delivery charges, no registration fees nor SIM card costs.
This new service will run from today till the end of the year (31 December 2017) and is targeted at customers who are about to end their contracts, are tired of being tied to lock-in contracts and want to experience a new way of life where they can surf, post, game and stream without constantly worrying about busting their monthly data caps or the inflexibility of contracts.
Circles Switch is just a glimpse of how our new “try before you buy” business model can be rolled out in the future.
Remember to cancel
Similar to other companies like Netflix’s free trial service, customers who try out Circles Switch will automatically switch over to a full Circles.Life base plan after the free period is over. Customers can then cancel anytime before the free period is over to avoid being charged.
What’s next for Circles.Life?
Circles.Life confirmed their next stop is Indonesia. With foreign entities in place, Circles.Life is currently operating at Block 71’s new location in Jakarta and is focused on building the local team including Operations, Product, and Network Engineering.
