Huge bill

Why do I have a 390 Telstra bill when I only used the internet Wi-Fi an watch Netflix a couple of times it's my first bill so I know there's a connection fee but I asked Telstra to not give me the technician activation fee because I put it all in myself so I'm being charged for something u didn't use

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

You'll need to call billing on 13 22 00 tomorrow (as there currently arent open) to discuss your bill. They open at 8AM.

Re: Huge bill

You need to keep on mind that in the first bill you pay:

  1. connection charge for the new customer (AFAIK $99.00 for contracts and $240.00 for casual plans) - this is not the technician fee, that would be even more extra...
  2. one month in advance (Telstra charges in advance)
  3. pro-rata from the day of connection to the first billing day

So, it could very possibly be that your fist bill is correct.

DISCLAIMER: I do not work for Telstra or any other ISP. I never did. I have wealth of practical knowledge in Computer Security and Forensic Computing. I have been in the field since 1985.
