New beginnings are always exciting — and as the latest telco to launch in Singapore, OYA is set to shake up your mobile data experience.

Isn’t the telco market already crazy saturated? you demand. You’re very right, but we aren’t just baiting you with empty promises!

Here’s some of what you can expect:

  • Mobile data that never expires
  • Data that can be used locally and overseas at no extra cost
  • Free 1GB data for new sign-ups (yay!)
  • The use of eSIM technology, which means there’s no need for a physical SIM card

Who is OYA for?

Do you fall into any of the following camps? Then you’ll likely love what we have to offer.

The commitment phobes

If you’ve never liked the idea of being tied down, you’ll be happy to know we aren’t the clingy sort. (But we still value you!)

Rather than bug you to switch telcos, OYA complements what you’ve already got. We’re the rojak sauce to your rojak; without us, your mobile data experience will remain a bland one.

The mobile data-hungry

Goodbye, data roaming fees and tourist SIM cards! Your mobile data can be used locally and when you’re overseas at no extra cost.

The pains of using data-draining, location-based apps like Google Maps will no longer put a dent in your pocket.

(Psst: New to Singapore? Here’s your guide to transport options around the city!)

Those who favour transparency

Imagine a $1,000 mobile bill for using 40MB of data.

That’s exactly what happened to OYA CEO Vegard Aas  — and it’s hardly an isolated experience. Hidden fees buried in the fine print are the bane of every user’s existence, and you’ll appreciate that what you see is what you get with us.

What makes OYA special?

We mentioned briefly how we’re plugging the gaps in Singapore’s telco scene, but these are some things that make us extra special.

Your data never expires

Why pay $28 for a 20GB SIM-only plan — only to have your leftover mobile data lapse on the last day of the month? We’re big on giving you what you pay for, meaning rollover data. Yep, it’s exactly like a digital wallet.

If your data drops below 100MB, you’ll get an in-app notification. We won’t throttle your speed limits, either, unlike some telcos.

And here’s the best bit: we want you to use OYA’s mobile data-only services to complement your existing telco.

There’s no need to switch camps or mobile data plans!

Here’s a closer peek at the app:

We offer you an (eSIM-enabled) passport to freedom

When you register with us, you’ll be able to enjoy mobile data within minutes — because OYA runs on eSIM technology. You won’t even have to switch SIM cards when travelling! The future is mobile data-only, and we recognise the increasing dependence on our phones.

If you’re a frequent traveller to Singapore and Malaysia — whether for business or leisure — you’ll appreciate that mobile data purchased with us can be used in either of these countries.

We’ll be progressively adding data coverage to more cities across Asia and Europe by end-2019 and 2020, respectively.

Hefty data roaming charges, travel SIM cards and pocket Wi-Fi rental from the likes of Changi Recommends and Klook will soon be a thing of the past. Good riddance, we say!

Mobile data costs and phone compatibility

If you’re wondering how much we charge, it costs just $5 for 1GB of data that never expires.

Because eSIM is still a relatively young technology, you’ll only be able to purchase mobile data with OYA if you’re using one of the following phones:
