For NBN connection, I am deciding between Mate Communication vs Tangerine as they seem to have the cheapest basic plan for unlimited data and BYO modem. The standard monthly price for both are the same for the basic plan, except that:
- Tangerine seems to have a higher speed for the basic plan as per their website though reviews give a mixed story (21 Mbps on average vs 10 Mbps of Mate) and it also has $10 off for the first 6 months which brings down the price for initial period.
- On the other hand, Tangerine has $25 referral credit, whilst Mate Communication gives $50 so above gap gets slightly narrowed that way as well considering joining credit as well as any future referral credits. All in all, cost-wise there's not much difference between the both.
Btw, I am currently with Mate (for last 1.5 yrs) and I get what I pay for i.e. 10 Mbps almost all the time so no issues there. Just thinking if Tangerine could give more speed for the same (or slightly cheaper) price, hence this post.
Any recommendation from the current users? Thanks in advance.
