AGL today launched AGL Mobile, adding telco services to AGL’s energy and recently-announced broadband offerings.
As with the NBN plans recently announced by AGL, the big draw to the new mobile plans are included discounts for bundling with an AGL energy plan. Plans are month-to-month with no cancellation fees, however porting your phone number out may incur an additional charge.
AGL Mobile plans are as follows:
- $20/mo, 5GB data, no included international calling credit
- $35/mo, 20GB data, $50 included international calls
- $45/mo, 50GB data, $300 included international calls
Each plan can be discounted by $5 per month when bundled with an AGL Energy account. Extra data is charged at $10 per GB. Standard national talk and texts are unlimited at every plan tier. Currently these SIM plans cannot be used overseas (but you can call overseas numbers from Australia, depending on your inclusion).
AGL Mobile plans are on the Optus network with 3G and 4G Plus connectivity options, so network coverage is (broadly) the same as if you were on an Optus plan. Note, though, there’s no 5G access with AGL Mobile (or any other Optus MVNOs at this stage).
Overall, these plans represent decent value if you can take advantage of the $5 discount, and are still reasonably competitive with most other options of the market without the discount.
