Digital telco Circles.Life has launched a $1 mobile plan which it says will aid cash-strapped Victorians doing it tough during the COVID-19 lockdown.
Valid until the end of lockdown, Circles.Life launched its “feature-packed” plan on Friday, commenting that “while other telcos have maintained or increased the price of their smartphone plans for the rest of the year, Circles.Life has introduced their $1 plan to aid financial stability and certainty for Victorians”.
The $1 plan, which Circle.Life says normally retails at $38/month, offers 100GB of data plus unlimited calls and texts until lockdown ends, and in addition, “unlike the COVID-19 lockdowns, there are no lock-ins, so users can cancel the plan at any time”.
“With a quarter of a million people stood down as a result of lockdowns, we know that many Victorians are doing it tough, which is magnified by the uncertainty around when lockdowns will end. Now more than ever, with the increased data usage that comes with everybody being stuck at home, keeping telecommunications affordable is vital to support Victorians to stay connected,” said Kristen Holden, Head of Australia, Circles.Life.
“That’s why, as Australia’s fastest growing and most innovative mobile operator, backed by the strength of the Optus network, Circles.Life is launching a $1 lockdown plan with no strings attached. We hope that this initiative will, in some way, alleviate the financial stress many Victorians are facing and give them more power to manage their mobile expenses,” Holden said.
Circle.Life says the offer is only available to Victorian customers who switch their current number to Circles.Life.
“Switching is quick and easy and takes only five minutes to port your number over. When lockdowns are eased, or after October 20 2020, users can choose to leave, downgrade to the $28 plan or stay on the $38 plan which offers the best value on the market,” the company notes.
