Great value on unlimited data
No lock-in contracts

Tangerine NBN has consistently topped our round ups of the best unlimited data plans, best NBN 50 plans and cheapest unlimited NBN overall. 

We’ll give you the lowdown on Tangerine’s best, cheapest and highest data plans and how it weighs up to the competition.

Best Tangerine NBN Plan

The most popular Tangerine NBN is its XL Speed Boost UNLIMITED no-contract plan offering unlimited data for $59.90 a month at a NBN Standard Plus evening speed of typically 42 Mbps.

Currently, Tangerine Telecom is offering a special offer where you’ll get your first 6 months for $59.90 a month, which will revert to $69.90 per month afterwards. 

How does this compare to my other options?

While this is currently one of, if not the most, popular NBN plan, you might want to consider Superloop’s UNLIMITED 100/20 plan if you’ve got a need for speed. You’ll receive an average evening speed of 90 Mbps and unlimited data for $89.95 a month.

Alternatively, for those that don’t need to stream in 4K or have a two-person household with average data usage, you could save yourself some dosh by opting for Tangerine’s cheaper Standard Speed UNLIMITED plan for $49.90 a month (which reverts to $59.90 after 6 months).

Cheapest Tangerine NBN Plan

Tangerine’s Standard Speed UNLIMITED, which we’ve already called out above, is its cheapest plan. However, if you’d prefer faster speeds, Tangerine’s XL Speed Boost UNLIMITED or XXL Speed Boost UNLIMITED are also worth considering at $69.90 and $74.90 a month respectively.

Does Tangerine supply a modem when you sign up?

You’ll get a modem from Tangerine at no extra cost if you sign up to a NBN Bundle (i.e. a NBN + Home Phone plan bundle). Otherwise, its standard no-contract plans are BYO modem, though you can opt to buy a NBN Ready modem upfront for an additional $99.90.

    I wanted to complain about the poor level of customer service provided by this company! I called as a potential customer and the first person called Ivon/Evon was very disengaging and put me through the sales person called Nathan who was also very repulsive and when I mentioned that the misinformation to convince me to buy a modem was misleading for FTTC customers, he rudely asked me to call when I was ready to buy!

    I asked to talk to a senior complaints manager who was the rudest of them all. So I asked what was his name and he dropped the line.

    So I fill up their ‘contact us’ form, but that doesn’t work either!

    That’s a zero star from me Doug.
