Tangerine's SIM-only plans explained

Tangerine's SIM-only mobile plans operate on no-lock-in, month-to-month contracts, with service provided on parts of the Telstra 3G and 4G networks. Unlimited standard calls and texts come standard with all Tangerine's plans, and data caps range from a humble 1GB all the way up to a hefty 40GB.

How does Tangerine compare?

  • Wide range of data caps for all appetites
  • Extended coverage thanks to the Telstra mobile network
  • Pricing is notably steeper than many competing options

Why should you consider Tangerine?

Tangerine compares well to other MVNOs thanks to it being one of the relatively few providers operating on Telstra's mobile network. As the network with the highest speeds and largest coverage in Australia, the benefit of the Telstra network can make up for the slight premium Tangerine charges compared to providers on Optus's 4G network.
