AGL mobile review
AGL is much better known for being one of the three largest energy providers in Australia, and has only recently started offering mobile plans. The value of the mobile plans improve if you already have an AGL energy plan to bundle your service with.
With AGL, you may get these features on your mobile plan:
If you have an existing AGL energy account (electricity or gas) in your name, you can bundle it with your mobile plan for a $5-per-month discount.
When you run out of data, AGL will automatically add on 1GB of data for $10, up to a maximum of 3GB each month.
International call credit
The Medium and Large mobile plans come with some amount of international call credit. Once you have used up your plan's allowance, overseas calls will be charged at AGL's pay as you go rates.
AGL mobile app
The AGL mobile app lets you manage your mobile, Internet and energy plans on an Android or iOS device. Available from Apple App Store and Google Play.

Is it worth signing up to AGL? We ask our utilities expert and writer, Sam Baran
AGL'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.
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).
|Plan name||Medium SIM only||Small Optus Choice Plan||38GB SIM only|
|Monthly plan cost||$35||$39||$36|
|Dollar per data value||$1.75 per 1GB||$3.90 per 1GB||$0.95 per 1GB|
|Features||International call credit||Data sharing, 5G access, no excess data charges||None|
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.
