There’s a new contender in town for no-contract digital phone plans.
GOMO or Get Out More Often, by Singtel was launched yesterday, 25 March, and looks to be a promising contender against Circles.Life and Zero Mobile.
Chances are, you’ve heard or seen Circles.Life advertisements unless you live under a rock.
In case you don’t know, Circles.Life is a digital telecommunications operator (or in simple English, a digital telco) which was launched in Singapore in 2016. They are completely digital and don’t have a physical shop for you to visit.
So if you want to write in a complain or enquiry about missing data, you’ll have to chat with a CSO through their chat box. (Speaking from personal experience, though, their CSOs are friendly.)
Stated on their website, Circles.Life is “Asia’s first fully digital telco and consumer company”. They mainly offer no-contract mobile plans, which means you’re free to hop on or off the telco anytime you want.
You may or may not know this, but there’s actually another digital telco in Singapore called Zero Mobile. They’re similar to Circles.Life but are a little on the pricey side.
But they have unlimited data, calls and SMS compared to the other two.
Now, with these new digital telcos providing data that’s as cheap as cai png, you can bet that the traditional players are going to fight back.
And fight back they do.
Now, if the headline isn’t clear enough, here’s what Singtel GOMO’s providing: for $20, you get 20GB, 200 SMSes, 200 min outgoing calls, free caller ID and incoming SMS.
Circles.Life, on the other hand, offers 20GB for $18/per month (previously $28), with 100 minutes and 25 SMS.
Both telcos offer additional data on top of your contract.
So, if you’re someone who loves talking on the phone for hours with your boyfriend or girlfriend, you may want to consider porting over to GOMO.
Other than that, the way in which they handle enquires are the same. GOMO is also fully operated online, and enquires are made through the 24/7 live chat.
Also, GOMO is has no contract, so it’s really a battle to the death between them.
In an article published by The Straits Times, Mr Yuen Kuan Moon, Singtel’s Consumer Singapore’s Chief executive officer, said: “Gomo is for the segment of our customers who want to get things done easily and only want to interact with us digitally.”
Aka, us millennials who get impatient over everything and anything.
GOMO customers can also enjoy dining discounts at selected restaurants and cafes.
Psst, they’re all hipster places too.
And if you sign up before 30 April, you can also get a free GOMO travel SIM.
But what’s GOMO Travel Sim?
The Travel Sim
GOMO’s travel sim is available for use in 8 countries: Australia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Macau, Malaysia, Philippines, Taiwan and Thailand.
It prices $20 for 3GB that spans across 10 days. Activation is also relatively easy as it can be registered and activated online, then you can start to use it.
The travel sim is also available for purchase in Singtel shops and 7-Elevens, and can be purchased online at Lazada or Qoo10.
I don’t know about you, but the no-contact battle is getting so intense, we’re all switching lines every few months #justsaying #whatisloyalty?
