AGL's mobile plans make it a convenient way to bundle some of your utilities together.
In fact, if you're already with AGL energy, you'll get $5 a month off your mobile plan fees. This is a nice bonus for existing customers, but it might not be a big enough saving to justify switching mobile providers.
From a base value standpoint, AGL's mobile plans are more expensive than some of its competitors for the same amount of data.

Its Small plan costs $10 per 5GB of data, which is around par, with comparable offers from other providers sit around $2–$5 per 1GB.

AGL operates on the Optus 4G network.
AGL has a lot of ways for you to get in touch with a problem or question, 7 days a week. You can:
AGL has a couple of bonus features included on its plans:
If you're a current AGL energy customer, you'll get $5 a month knocked off the price of any AGL mobile plan.
This is mostly useful if you're with AGL already and are looking to get a new mobile plan with a cheeky saving.
The Medium and Large mobile plans come with $50 and $300 of international call credit, respectively.
This won't stretch too far if you frequently phone overseas numbers, but it's good if you only need a couple of international calls per month.

What if I want to keep my current phone number?
When you're activating your new AGL SIM, you'll be given the option of transferring your current phone number. AGL advises that the transfer process could take up to 2 business days, but is usually done within an hour.
If your current number is under someone else's name (a parent or a partner), it may involve a couple of extra steps. Check our guide on how to transfer ownership of your mobile number.
