Is it worth signing up to AGL? We ask our utilities expert and writer, Sam Baran

Photo of Sam BaranAGL's cheapest option – $20 for 5GB – isn't bad, representing a decent low-use data plan. Besides that, the rest of the plans aren't too appealing, especially if budget is your main concern. You could probably do better by comparing your options if you need more than 5GB/month.

While the $5 discount for bundling is nice, it's not really worth switching your energy over to AGL unless it actually represents a significant saving for you. But if you're already an AGL energy customer and are in need of a new mobile plan, you might find the monthly discount more appealing, as well as having your energy and mobile under the one provider.

Otherwise, consider a provider like Vaya, which gives better value on the same Optus network, or even a prepaid provider like ALDI Mobile which is known for its affordable plans.

Go back to comparing AGL plans

How does AGL compare?

To see how AGL measures up to other mobile providers, we've put its Medium plan up against similar offerings from Optus (its network provider) and Vaya (another MVNO on the Optus network).

AGLOptusVaya
Plan nameMedium SIM onlySmall Optus Choice Plan38GB SIM only
Monthly plan cost$35$39$36
Data allowance20GB10GB38GB
Dollar per data value$1.75 per 1GB$3.90 per 1GB$0.95 per 1GB
FeaturesInternational call creditData sharing, 5G access, no excess data chargesNone

AGL doesn't compare very well to the other small provider, Vaya, as it's offering about half the value. However, AGL has much better data value than Optus, more than doubling it in many aspects.

In terms of features, AGL and Vaya are comparable, meaning that Vaya is a clear winner unless you already have an AGL energy account for a $5 per month discount.

International calls with AGL

All of AGL's plans come with pay as you go international calls, with per-minute rates depending on the country and whether you're calling a mobile or a landline. The Medium and Large plans come with a set amount of international call credit included.

AGL does not offer international roaming on any of its plans and cannot be used overseas.
