Tangerine review: What we think

Tangerine Telecom is keeping NBN connections straightforward and uncomplicated with a set of three plans on the high-speed network. It also offers some SIM-only mobile plans on the side.

Tangerine's plans all offer unlimited data and they roughly cost between $60 and $100 per month. All three plans have about average typical speeds for their tiers, and with $10 off your first 6 months, they aren't too bad a deal.

With Tangerine, you won't face any set-up fees beyond the price of a $129.90 modem, and there's not much extra stuff to complicate the deal.

Is Tangerine Telecom right for you?

The good stuff

  • Decent typical connection speeds.
  • 14-day connection trial.
  • No set-up or connection fees.

The not-so-good stuff

  • No Basic tier NBN plans.
  • Higher prices than some competitors.

The bottom line: Tangerine Telecom has extremely simple plans that offer good speeds for a reasonable price.

    Fixed Wireless NBN Broadband was scheduled to be activated in my area on 1 Aug 2016 – PC 3882. Rollout Region ID: 3BAI-51-12-NICO

    I have signed up with Tangerine Telecom.
    My question is, why are they not listed as a provider on the list that appears for my region?

    I notice that Southern Phone also do not appear in the list.
