How long does it take to reconnect my accounts?

My broadband, home phone and mobile account was recently disconnected due to long running 6month billing and accounts issue i was having with telstra. I ended up raising a complaint with the TIO, and the case manager i'm talking to is currently in the process of re-activating my accounts and getting me back online


Its been a week since all this has happened and i'm wondering what the hell is taking so god damn long? i'm an existing customer, their is no installation that needs to be done, no setting up,nothing. How much longer should i be expected to wait? with the amount of time that has passed, i could of gotten setup with any other broadband provider which i am now contemplating on doing. Seriously, guys - how much longer?

Was this helpful?

The only person who can authoritatively advisr you is your case manager. Sometimes after 6 months disconnection... cables are reallocated for other customers
