Energy Providers Doubling Up as Telcos

In the market today, there are already several energy providers doubling up as telcos. Apart from the energy services they provide, they also offer their customers the option to connect to the internet through a bundled plan. If you are on the lookout for the best home bundle plans, then read on because this quick guide will list down some of the energy providers that can already provide you with internet connectivity, offering you the convenience of having to monitor a single bill and due date.

 

 

Dodo Energy and Internet Bundle

Dodo has already made a name in the telco industry as one of the providers offering some of the cheapest internet plans. You can even acquire some of their unlimited data plans for as low as $58 per month under a promotional discount. Just recently, the company expanded its services, offering electricity and gas services to its subscribers. Some of the areas they service include Victoria, NSW, Queensland, and South Australia.

 

Currently, if you make the switch to subscribe to them for electricity, you will be eligible to get three months' worth of free internet. Rest assured that they have competitive electricity rates as well as reasonable gas usage rates. However, you should be aware that the price of the plans offered by telcos may change anytime even without prior notice.

 

Kogan Energy and Internet Bundle

Kogan has also entered the energy space and it is now deemed as a competitive player in both energy and telecom industries. In Victoria, this provider also offers natural gas to its subscribers. Currently, Kogan offers three bundle plans which are as follows:

 

  • Kogan Energy For Current Kogan First Members, $1079 per month 

This plan is distributed by Ausgrid but it is only available to first-time customers of Kogan. When you sign up for this plan, you will receive a $49 credit.

 

  • Kogan Energy With Free Kogan First, $1079 per month

Like with the first plan mentioned, this plan from Kogan is also distributed by Ausgrid. When you sign up for this plan, you will receive 12 months of complimentary Kogan First Membership.

 

  • Basic, $1388 per month

It can be noted that this plan is equal to the AER reference price based on the general usage in the Ausgrid network.

 

AGL Energy and Internet Bundle

AGL has already made its name in the country as one of the most reliable providers of gas and electricity. However, just recently, it already made a crossover to providing internet services. The great thing about AGL is that they provide competitive NBN plans. In fact, they introduced three unlimited data NBN options at once namely the Home Basic (NBN 25), Home Standard (NBN 50), and Home Fast (NBN 100). With the different speed tiers to choose from, there is one that will surely fit any type of household.

 

All of these unlimited data plans also offer no-contract terms as well as no setup fees, making them an attractive option for many subscribers. On top of this, subscribers who go for an AGL broadband plan bundled with an energy service will be eligible for a $15 monthly discount.

 

Origin Energy and Internet Bundle

Origin Energy is considered to be one of the “big three” energy retailers in the country and recently, it also jumped into the telecom sector. Like AGL, they are also offering three different NBN bundles namely the Everyday 25, Experience 50, and Enthusiast 100. Everyday 25 costs $74 per month while Experience 50 costs $84 per month. Meanwhile, you will have to pay $104 a month for Enthusiast 100.

 

When you bundle any of the NBN plans offered by Origin to your energy needs, you will be eligible for a $10 discount on your bill every month. This means that the prices will all drop to $64, $74, and $94 respectively which is very competitive, especially when compared to other telco providers in the market. Rest assured that with any of these plans, you will already get to enjoy unlimited data. On top of this, you can also choose from a no-contract term, a 12-month lock-in contract, as well as a 24-month contract term. You also won’t have to pay any activation fee.

 

Apart from NBN broadband plans though, the great thing about Origin Energy is that they also offer Fibre and ADSL broadband plans to date. This will prove to be particularly beneficial for consumers still waiting to make the switch to the NBN.
