Tangerine Telecom Mobile plans

Compare Tangerine Telecom's SIM-only mobile plans.


Tangerine Telecom – also called plain old Tangerine – seems focused on NBN plans at the moment, but the company still provides no-contract SIM-only mobile phone services running on the Optus 4G network.

Tangerine Telecom no-lock-in phone plans


Tangerine Telecom keeps it very simple and offers only four price points for SIM-only, no-contract mobile plans.

On the bottom end, there's the $29.95 per month pricing. That's 1GB of data and includes all local calls and local SMS and MMS. At the top end, $59.95 a month will score you 7GB, plus $300 worth of international calls to 56 different countries. No matter what plan you're on, you'll pay an excess of $10/GB if you go over your data limit.

  • $59.95 recharge includes 7GB of data, unlimited national calls, SMS and MMS and $300 of international calls
  • $49.95 recharge includes 5GB of data, unlimited national calls, SMS and MMS and $300 of international calls
  • $39.95 recharge includes 3GB of data and unlimited national calls, SMS and MMS
  • $29.95 recharge includes 1GB of data and unlimited national calls, SMS and MMS

How does Tangerine Telecom compare?


Tangerine Telecom works on the Optus 4G network and the site provides a coverage map so you can double-check before signing up.

While the company describes its data offerings as "chunky" that claim doesn't quite stack up when you look at what Exetel Mobile has in its no-contract basket.

Tangerine Telecom's top two pricing tiers and pricing-to-data ratios are similar to those that KISS mobile offers for higher data levels, but still not as well-priced as fellow Optus MVNO Exetel.

Why should you consider Tangerine Telecom?

Tangerine Telecom does compare well to some other MVNOs, but there are better-priced deals around. This might be due to the company putting its focus into NBN plans rather than mobile. Of course, it means you could use Tangerine Telecom to combine home NBN and an affordable no-contract SIM-only phone if you like the idea of consolidating bills.

Tangerine Telecom recharge options


As a pre-paid service Tangerine Telecom sends a bill each month for your selected pricing tier. If you go over your data there's a set fee of $10 which gets you an extra 1GB. There's a service portal where you can check usage.

Payment options for each month include:

  • Automatic direct debit payment
  • Credit card
  • PayPal
  • In person at your Post Office
