What are AGL Internet plans like?

AGL sells a trio of broadband plans, each on a month-to-month contract. All plans are discounted by $15 per month when you bundle them with an AGL energy account in the same name.

  • Home Basic NBN25. Unlimited data for $60 per month. Typical evening speed of 19.00Mbps.
  • Home Standard NBN50. Unlimited data for $65 per month. Typical evening speed of 38.00Mbps.
  • Home Fast NBN100. Unlimited data for $80 per month. Typical evening speed of 76.00Mbps.

You can either bring your own modem or get one from AGL. AGL's modem is free if you stay on AGL broadband for 12 months, or costs $8 for each month (as a lump sum on your final bill) before you switch.

AGL Internet review

AGL has offered energy plans for a very long time, and only recently expanded into the broadband market. The plans are relatively average as far as price goes, but if you're looking at grabbing speedy plans, you'll probably need to look elsewhere.

All of AGL's NBN plans come with typical evening speeds that are below the average of similar plans in Finder's database. For example, the average speed for an NBN50 plan on Finder is 43.4Mbps, and AGL's comes in at only 38Mbps.

If speed isn't your main concern and you're looking to have your utilities together in one place, AGL may still be a viable option for you.

Is AGL Internet any good? We ask our utilities expert and writer, Sam Baran

Photo of Sam BaranAGL's plans aren't the best value, unless you happen to be an AGL energy customer.

Without the $15 per month discount, AGL's plans work out to be $5-$10 more expensive than plans in a similar speed tier on Finder's database, with typical evening speeds far below our average.

While the discount could be attractive if you're already with AGL, it's probably not worth switching to AGL energy from another provider just for that. The price of AGL's plans with the discount included only makes them more competitive, but not particularly cheap.

How does AGL broadband compare?

To see how AGL stacks up against its competitors, we've compared its NBN50 plan to similar plans from Dodo (which also has energy bundling discounts) and TPG (a major broadband provider).

ProviderTypical evening speedPriceExtra features
AGL38Mbps$80 per month ($65 with bundling discount) + up to $96 modem (free if you stay for 12 months)None
Dodo41Mbps$70 per month ($65/$60 with bundling discount) + $120 modem (no contract)Entertainment bundles
TPG48Mbps$69.99 per month + $99.95 set-up fee (no contract)Call packs

AGL's plan is $10 more expensive than either of its competitors, which adds up to paying $120 more per year. The set-up fee can be quite cheap compared to the other two, but only if you stay for 12 months.

In terms of speed, AGL lags behind, being much slower than the ACCC average download speed of 47.3Mbps for NBN 50 plans. The only way AGL may compare well is if you bundle in an energy account, but even then, Dodo is cheaper.

Here's a summary of AGL's performance in pros and cons:

Pros

  • Energy bundling discount
  • App for plan management
  • BYO modem options available to save

Cons

  • More expensive than other plans in its tier
  • Poor typical evening speeds compared to ACCC data
