AGL internet review

AGL is one of Australia's most respected gas and electricity providers, but it also provides NBN plans. All of AGL's NBN plans come with unlimited data, no lock-in contract and no set-up fees.

  • If you're with AGL for electricity anyway and can take advantage of the available bundling discounts, it's not a bad choice for an NBN provider.
  • Its typical evening speeds are good on its NBN 25, NBN 50, NBN 100 and NBN 250 plans, attaining the maximum speed available on their respective tiers. This suggests that these plans should offer fast internet speeds.
  • If you're not already an AGL customer and you're looking to compare NBN plans, then you're likely to find a better deal elsewhere. Its plan prices for the most common speed tiers in Australia - NBN 25, 50 and 100 - are above the average found in Finder's database without any of AGL's bundling discounts applied.

Things to watch out for:

  • To get the optional home phone line, you'll need to buy AGL's modem, you can't BYO. Luckily its modem is in line with average price of a them on Finder's database.
  • If you opt for a payment plan when buying a modem from AGL and cancel before your instalment period is up, you'll need to pay out the remaining cost in full on your next bill.

A bit of background on AGL

Known primarily as an energy provider, AGL started life as the Australian Gas Light company.

  • It formed in 1837 in Sydney, then in 1841 it lit the first street gas lamp in the city. It later diversified into electricity.
  • After a false start following the acquisition of telco Dingo Blue in 2000 which it then closed in 2003, AGL moved into the data and telecommunications space when it purchased regional provider Southern Phone in 2019.
  • AGL launched its own broadband products in 2020.
