AGL NBN Internet Plans Review

With so many providers on the market, looking for the right NBN plan can be confusing – especially when it means yet another bill to pay each month. Luckily, some service providers are seeking to make things easier for you by-allowing customers to bundle internet plans to other essential services, such as electricity and gas. AGL has recently entered the NBN game with easy-to-understand internet plans and bonuses for AGL power customers.

If you like to keep it simple, AGL could very well be your next internet provider, and if you’re already an AGL customer, you could save some serious dollars by signing up for the company’s NBN offerings.

AGL NBN Plans

AGL’s NBN plans all bring unlimited data, starting at $75 per month for NBN 25, $80 per month for NBN 50, and $95 per month for NBN 100. However, customers can receive a $15 per month discount when bundling with an AGL energy plan, effectively bringing prices down to $60, $65 and $80 respectively.

AGL NBN Features, bundles and more

AGL focuses on being a simple provider with easy to understand plans that also offer some nice bonuses to energy customers.

  • AGL NBN Modem: You can get an AGL modem for free if you stay connected for 12 months. This modem is normally valued at $96 ($8 per month). If you cancel your plan, you’ll have to pay the rest of the modem out.
  • AGL NBN and Energy bundle discount: AGL energy customers can save $15 per month on any internet plan, provided that they bundle their AGL NBN plans with their AGL Energy. If you change either NBN or energy customers, you’ll lose the discount.
  • No lock-in contracts: All AGL NBN plans are contract free.

AGL Standard NBN

AGL’s lowest speed plan is on the NBN 25 tier. You can get this plan for just $75 per month if you’re not an AGL energy customer, or $60 per month if you are. This plan is ideal for basic social media use, basic gaming and general internet use.

AGL Standard Plus NBN

AGL’s mid-range plan is on the NBN 50 speed tier. It’s available for $80 if you’re not an AGL energy customer, or $65 if you are. This speed is ideal for 4K streaming, online gaming and fast online browsing.

AGL Premium NBN

If you want the fastest of what AGL offers, then its NBN 100 plan is ideal for you. You can get this plan for $95 on its own, or $80 monthly if you’re an AGL Energy customer. This speed is optimal for high-intensity online gaming, huge file downloads and 4K streaming.

AGL NBN contact and customer support

If you’d like to get some help with your AGL NBN plan, there’s ways you can get in touch:

  • Head to the AGL website and chat with a customer service representative online
  • Call 1300 001 035 for any customer service help
  • AGL customer support is open 24/7 all days of the year.

How does AGL NBN compare to other providers?

AGL might be offering something interesting with NBN plans coupled to energy plans, but it’s not the only provider trying this. Origin and Dodo both offer price deductions on internet plans for having matching energy plans, but really it’s about finding the best plan for your needs.

If you’re interested in bundling your energy and internet expenses into one bill, AGL NBN offers a service that not many providers do. This simplicity could be an attractive prospect if you hate paperwork, and want to deal with just the one company.

$15 per month is a great discount as well, and effectively brings AGL’s NBN 100 plan down to a competitive $80 per month price.

AGL NBN internet speeds leave something to be desired, and aren’t that fast across all three plans, all being below Australian averages according to the ACCC. If speed matters to you, you might want to look elsewhere, however AGL NBN’s speeds are fine for casual use.

Is AGL NBN value for money?

AGL NBN offers some of the cheapest NBN 50 and NBN 100 on the market, however that’s if you’re an AGL energy customer. If you’re not an AGL energy customer, the prices are a bit steep.

That being said, there’s a lot to love in bundling your expenses into a single bill per month from one provider. If you like simplicity, that’s one thing AGL NBN has over the competition.

It’s definitely worth shopping around for the plan that’s right for you, but if you want to keep things simple and have multiple utilities coming from one provider, then AGL NBN might be the way to go.
