AGL are getting into the Internet business

The energy company is now offering NBN products

In a move that further expands the energy provider’s interests into other growth channels, AGL has announced its rollout of NBN plans off the back of its acquisition of regional telco Southern Phone last year.

AGL are offering three plans at launch, that naturally get cheaper if you’re an existing gas or electricity customer. A base 25/5Mbps will set you back A$60 bundled or $75 without, with a 50/20Mbps at $65 bundled, $80 standalone and 100/20 $80 bundled or $95 standalone.

Them’s some expensive meatballs if we’re talking value, even bundled pricing being relatively high in comparison to other “pure” Internet providers.

AGL aren’t the first ones to do this either. Origin launched NBN plans not long ago, both claiming that bundling services means an easier experience for customers with a consolidated bill. That’s rarely the case though, with a lot of companies having trouble sending a single bill when all playing in the same business. Hello Telstra and Optus.

The AGL speeds appear to be average at best, with typical evening speeds placing them below the likes of Dodo according to comparison site WhistleOut, oof!
