Tangerine Telecom mobile review: Why choose them?
On the whole, none of Tangerine Telecom’s plans provide very much in the way of data per dollar when compared to the offerings from other MVNOs and even Telstra itself. On top of basic inclusions, you get:
- International pack. For an extra $15 per day on top of your regular plan fee, you can add 200Mb of data per day and unlimited standard calls to over 40 destinations.
- Roaming. You can activate international roaming when you’re overseas. Be aware that roaming fees can add up swiftly and you’re probably better off with an alternative such as a local SIM.
- Wide selection. Tangerine Telecom has eight separate plans to choose from, letting you pick exactly the amount of data you’re after.
- Poor plan value. Even compared to a big provider like Telstra, Tangerine Telecom’s plans don’t really give much value for their cost, so it may be worth comparing mobile plans from different providers to get a better deal.
- Pay in advance. Tangerine charges plan fees at the beginning of the month, meaning you could end up paying an extra month if you want to cancel and aren’t careful.
Tangerine Telecom mobile network coverage
Tangerine Telecom uses the Telstra wholesale 3G and 4G networks, which reach around 98.8% of Australians. The main difference you’ll find in coverage compared to the whole network is mostly in a few rural and regional areas.
