Tangerine Telecom offers SIM-only mobile plans with no-lock-in contracts powered by parts of Telstra's 4G network.
Is Tangerine right for me?
- What does Tangerine offer? Tangerine offers an array of SIM-only mobile plans on parts of the Telstra 3G and 4G networks. These plans can be bundled together with Tangerine's NBN plans, too.
- Product highlights: No-lock-in contracts and a broad spread of data caps for all needs.
- Watch out for: Tangerine bills in advance, charging for the next month of service as soon as your current month ends. If you want to cancel your service, you'll need to submit a request before the end of your current billing cycle to avoid paying for an extra month.

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.
