  1. Circles.Life

Circles.Life is a Singapore-based mobile operator using a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) model, which requires no physical infrastructure apart from a software platform provided by Circles.Life’s technology vendor. The company has been reportedly valued at S$25 million in the seed round of financing, and it has applied for a full operating license in Singapore.

Since its launch, Circles.Life has been compared to MVNOs such as FreedomPop and Lyca Mobile because it offers zero-rated data access to certain apps and websites during the user’s daily commute. Like other MVNOs, Circles.Life suggests its own mobile plans for users to choose from.
