Tangerine Telecom Joins The Move-In Connect Team
We’re excited to welcome Tangerine Telecom to Move-In Connect, to connect you to the cheapest NBN plans when you are moving your broadband. Tangerine has been impressing customers with affordable NBN and stellar customer service since 2013.
Read on to find out why we love Tangerine.
Who is Tangerine?
If you haven’t heard of Tangerine Telecom then you’re missing out! This 100% Australian-owned and operated telecommunications company was founded by NBN veterans, brothers Andrew and Richard Branson. Their head office is in South Melbourne, with operations in Geelong and Mudgee.
They offer a huge range of services, from residential NBN plans to business-grade ethernet services to SIM-only plans and everything in between. With all these deals on offer, they’ve named themselves “Australia’s juiciest internet and mobile service provider.”
Tangerine knows you can’t do it alone, and they’ve partnered with some key organisations to deliver great value NBN while giving back to the community.
- Commonwealth Bank – as Commbank’s exclusive telecommunications partner, customers and staff can access discounted rates to save money on NBN and mobile plans.
- Greenfleet – through this climate action group, Tangerine works hard to remain a carbon-neutral workforce by offsetting emissions through native reforestation projects.
- Pancare Foundation – Tangerine proudly supports Pancare to help deliver better outcomes and support for people impacted by the pancreatic, liver, stomach, oesophageal and biliary cancer.

*If you are connecting NBN to a property for the first time, you may have to pay a one-off New Development Charge. This is a government charge of $300 for connections to new developments and greenfield sites. Tangerine discounts the charge for their customers to $275.
^The speed you can reach depends on the type of access technology you have at your new property as well as other factors such as network congestion, the quality of your equipment and your signal reception strength.
Your Move-In Connect expert will advise you which NBN connection type you have. You can read about the different types of NBN connections here.
If you have fibre-to-the-curb (FTTC) or fibre-to-the-node (FTTN), you may be eligible for an upgrade to a fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) connection through the NBN Fibre Connect Program. This government program will see approximately two million FTTN and FTTC connections upgraded to FTTP, giving access to higher speeds and less congestion.
With Tangerine’s Fresh Fibre, eligible FTTC and FTTN customers will receive a free upgrade to FTTP when they choose an included plan. Read more about it here.
Bundle a modem
Tangerine offers a Google Nest or Netcomm modem as an add-on to your plan, to make sure your NBN connection is optimized and working well. You also have the choice to BYO modem if you already have a model that can handle the speeds for your new plan.
Talk to your Move-In Connect expert to discover the best modem option for you.
Bundle a mobile plan
To complete your telecommunications needs, you can bundle a mobile and/or home phone plan, so you can enjoy the convenience of a single bill and great rates!
