Telstra broadband billing - a little bit stupid or totally moronic?

Got incorrectly billed for broadband access (Telstra was still billing beyond end of contract) so rang in August and was told "sorry, this amount has been zeroed, account has been closed".  Two months later I receive a demand notice from a debt collection agency saying I have 7 days to pay an outstanding amount for EXACTLY THE SAME ACCOUNT THAT WAS DISCUSSED IN AUGUST!!!  Incompetence, stupidity, unbelievably-breathtakingly-moronically bad service from Telstra (latest in a long string) who assured me this issue was over and done with.  Fix it now Telstra!

Was this helpful?

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